Photographer's Note

I took this photo inside the "Ibn Battutta" shopping mall, which is located on the main Abu Dhabi highway, about 20 kms outside of Dubai city centre.
The mall consists of five themed areas, reflecting some of the countries visited by this famous Arab explorer. This image is taken of the Persian domed area, and it has taken me many visits and many cappuccinos (in Starbucks directly below the dome), before I finally got around to capturing the image.
I hand held my camera, and utilised the lighting correction button on the camera to capture the most realistic colour tones. I included some of the surrounding arches to give the shot a little more interest.
