Cliff diving in Dubai Mall
Walking through the Dubai Mall I was really impressed by the size, the shops and the aquarium. One thing I picked to capture some pictures from was the waterfall with the cliff diver sculptures. A really big wall where a water fall ran down and many body sculptures were mounted looking like performing synchronised cliff diving. Half-dark inside light, no tripod – that required going to ISO 1250 being able to get non-blurred pictures with the tele zoom.
Turning the pictures into black&white made them much more interesting and I took the freedom to remove the mountings of the sculptures so that the look got a bit more mystery and artificial mood.
