This is a photo of Hodariyat Bridge in Abu Dhabi. The bridge is still not commissioned for traffic since it leads to desert island with zero infrastructure. How did I take this exposure? It was 20 minutes after sunset. While sky was getting black with just slight reddish from the sunset on the sea horizon, the full moon was rising on the opposite side behind my back. Details are: f8.0, 25 seconds and ISO 80. The final shot was a mixture of bridge silhouettes, bridge cables in form of light stripes and remains of background lights. During photo editing, the main part was to lift exposure to +3 EV which revealed the moonlit bridge in its full glory.

love this! A superbly executed and imaginatively conceived shot of this magnificent bridge. The light and detailing are so amazing with the sky and stars just adding that little something extra that elevates it to classic status. Stunning - well done!
Enjoy your weekend - B.
