The sharpness of the lens rivals a 4x5 film camera. Very nice shots.

Aash! Aash! zain! Great shots!

My first trip to the Near east was to the UAE, in 1995. I haven't been back since, but I know from the pictures that it has changed quite abit, but your pictures show that some things have not changed.

I look forward to seeing more pictures.

Thanks for your king comments.
robgski, I can assure that much of Dubai must have changed since 1995!
