Desert Photo Safari with RC | Dubai

Finally I met the ‘Photoshop Guy’, Rafael Concepcion better know as RC (really cool)!
RC was in Dubai for  Gulf Photo Plus (GPP2014), this is where I first met him while attending one of his seminars.

I couldn’t but offered him a Desert Safari Drive with an opportunity to take some shots of the beautiful Desert and man made reserves.
It was a great day out and some amazing shots. All pictures are ©

Pigeons’ Rock, Beirut | HDR

Pigeons' Rock
Pigeons' Rock, Raouche | Beirut

This is an HDR (High Dynamic Range) image that I took in Beirut for the famous Pigeon’s Rock located in Raouché.

  • Camera: Canon EOS 550D
  • Lens: 24-70mm f2.8
  • Focal Length: 24 mm
  • Shutter Speed: 2 sec.
  • Number of exposures: 9 (+/-1EV)
  • Aperture: 8
  • ISO: 100

Off the coast of Raouché, there is a natural landmark called the Pigeons’ Rock (also known as the Rock of Raouché). Located at Beirut’s western-most tip, the two huge rock formations, which stand like gigantic sentinels, are a popular destination for locals and visitors alike.
Raouche’s Pigeons’ Rock has recently been featured on the front page of Microsoft’s Bing. Source: Wikipedia
