this is fabulous Robert, really really works.
the diagonal line bringing you to the main subject and the level of light that you find there is excellent
Well done

Great capture even though it reminds me of work. I bet there are not many people on here who know what a R.H.S. is.

rhs is short for "right hand side".

Thank you all for your comments and support. it is not an easy image especially since the thumbnail is not very inviting.

An excellent shot. The wonderful low light capabilities of that D3 is a delight. Bryan

Mark, you worry me, Smile

agree on the high iso of this camera. it is a joy and allows for hand held in the middle of the night.

Great Mono - love the lighting!

Excellent image.
I've spent a bit of time in Dubai and Abu Dhabi this year. The development over there is something to behold and is so very impressive - inspirational even. You are in a fascinating place to be capturing such a still image record.
The metro itself is a wonder - each time I visit it seems to have grown so much more than just a few weeks since.
Brilliant work - your portfolio is marvellous.
