Spot on mate, finally someone came out with the truth...

The photo is indeed fake since it's been heavily edited and cars have definitely been removed from the roads...

I've been living in Dubai for around 5 years and I'm yet to see traffic worse than here!

Even at ridiculous times of 12:30 and 1:00 am at night there is traffic in certain areas. Dubai is a city where no one sleeps!

Traffic here is far worse than the UK or any other place I've seen...

Why does that make it 'fake'? Editing a photo means it's no longer really a photo? At what point does it become 'fake'?

Dubai does not look like that. The weather has been edited and the cars have been removed. The specific area is full of traffic 24/7 yet there is not a single car visible in the photo...

I would love to see the before and after photo...

Photography is an art, it's not just about documenting exactly how something looks in the real world.

Well said.
A little late to the party, but there is another pic I found of the same spot with almost no cars on the road again. There are a few, but if they were removed via Photoshop, then I think they would have removed ALL of them.

It seems more likely that there is a time where there are no cars on those roads for whatever reason.

My post count isn't high enough to post links but just add http to it:

The question is, as the OP suggested, he says it looks drawn - do you think it looks drawn?

I can't comment on the lack of cars and yes, I would say some editing has happened. I don't think it looks drawn though.

In regards to the cars, I don't necessarily think that, if there were cars, they were photoshopped out. A multi frame stitch would enable you to selectively drop in photos where there were no cars.

[QUOTE=kanej2007;4811861]I live in Dubai and believe me the Burj Khalifa doesn't look anywhere near as good as it does in the photo, whether day or night.

It HAS been edited and colours changed...

This is how it looks in reality with NO editing, compare it with the above:


I like this shot alot is it possible to get it in 4096x2160 or 3840x2160 as a desktop background ?

No. When you shoot at night with long exposures (not sure how long this one was, haven't seen Exif) you will not see cars.

See the first pic here http://www.momondo.com.au/inspiratio...cvB8QZmTXO4.97

You see those white and red lines on the road? They're cars. Only in places (where they're moving) you can't see them. When stationary, you can of course see them.

Now I don't know how smoothly the traffic was moving in that shot, but if there's any cars going slow or stationary, they would be visible. If they're all travelling at a high enough speed, you won't see them.

I see some weird reflections on a couple of buildings too, which makes me think they've been tampered with.

Great pic. Just looks weird because of the exposure, which was probably necessary given the light.
