@Dalia - welcome to the group! :) you are correct - We are meeting in IBN batuta cinema parking at 2:00 and would drive up to auh. We should then have enough time to get there and scout the mosque for sunset photo shoot.
Hi guys. This would be my first meet up with this group. Just trying to get more information - looks like we are all meeting in Dubai then heading to AD to take photos around sunset time of the mosque - correct? Thanks :)
I'm coming from Falcon City if anyone would like a ride.
@Ahmad - where do you live? I can pick you from around greens. [masked]
guys Is there any one has an extra place and can offer me a ride with him ??
Lloyd are you going to attend with us or no ?
I may already be in Abu Dhabi so I could meet up directly from there.
How about meeting at IBN at 2:00 then..? Outside the cinema parking? Roughly an hour to get there and some time to scout...
I was thinking v shld get to d mosque by 4 at least. I've heard there is good light around 4:30 out there. Don't wanna miss tht. So can v meet at Ibn earlier
Would recommend IBN batuta - always plenty if spaces and easy access... Those coming via metro would find it convenient as well...
I would think meet at 3 in Dxb and then drive together to the Mosque. Where to park this time? JBR parking may be full, or the Walk could be jammed with cars.
are we meeting at the mosque at 3 or meeting in dubai at 3 (and driving in a convoy)..
Hi Lloyd....you're right. shooting people over there is alot more interesting and fun. Looking forward to meet you guys over there.

Hi Ahmed... I agree, it's hard to take a shot that no one else has taken a 1000 times already. I think this is a job for a seasoned professional, but it's still fun. I'm not doing it for the competition, but for the fun. I think the opportunities lie in photographing the people in the environment, rather than the architecture, since that has been done to death already.
I went this afternoon to scout some locations. It doesn't look like its going to be easy to get a new perspective. Seems like 4pm is the time to be around for landscape shots (from the eastern side). There's also a macro photography group for the contest, but i just don't understand how on earth can you take macro shots in the mosque !
Hey guys.. please check this site it may help. http://szgmc.ae/en/tours
as far as I know even if the mosque is closed, still you can do shooting. but to go inside is what you will miss.
I recommend to do this on 8.00pm so you can attend the tour with a tour guy.

Sure peanut, ur welcome to ride along. V can only go to d mosque between 9am-10pm. So feel free to come up with a plan. I'm game for anythg and everything.

Hey Amreen.. soooo, i get that you wanted to do morning, but the timings up there says afternoon... so Im assuming this is the afternoon shoot. Also, I'm coming from the marina as well, so I'd love to hitch a ride with you if thats ok. Also, since the mosque is closed in the morning on Fridays.. I'm just wondering if we can squeeze in morning shoot on the Saturday as well... hang out all day Sat in AD (maybe check out open Art/photo Galleries??), and then come back for the evening.
If anybody from marina side wants a ride along. Plz by all means contact me. [masked]

I don't want to claim I'm an unsung genius or anything. I'd rather let you guys do that :-) Thanks for checking Amreen!
Ok jus found out! On Fridays the mosque is closed in the morning for visitors. From Saturday to Thursday v can go there from 9am-10pm any time.
Just checked my flight! I'm only back at 4:30pm so i'll have to miss out. Next time!
Who's going to find out about the mosque being open at crazy o'clock?
@ david - Frm Whr u live about an hour or an hour and fifteen mins.
Great idea!!! Let's do tht.
Ok, let's confirm that it's open those hours and if it is we'll do a morning shoot and change the time. How about we shoot at a location in Abu Dhabi city afterwards and meet some of the members from there?
I m missing the morning shoot on the 23rd. So I'd like to do the morning one. But if others feel they wanna do a late afternoon or evening, feel free to change the timings.
It's a mosque Lloyd. How can it not b open for the early morning prayers? However, we can check to be sure.
Can I suggest an afternoon shoot? We already have a morning slot. Feel free to change it again
Guys, have we even established if the place is open at 5AM?
Yup it is dear.
Hi Guys, is this a morning one as well?
