13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Altered Images
Early Bird Catches The Sunrise

This photo was taken during my visit in Doha, Qatar. I planned to take the landscape early morning 2hrs before the expected sunrise. But my mum insisted she wanted to go with me. I was hoping that this time i can get a better shot of Doha Skyline. While i was doing my normal camera preparations my mum was doing her early morning exercise. To my surprise when the sun came out, there was this perfect golden rays of sun hitting the skyline of Doha. I knew right there and then that if i fail to take this photo i wont be able to get this kind of chance. So luckily i did. There are two photos that i took, one is the panoramic view and one is abstract/fine arts.
