An amateur photographer from Lebanon, Bachir Moukarzel, decided to take a fresh look at the largest city of the Emirates, Dubai. He took pictures from a bird's-eye view. One of his photos so impressed the jury of the competition for the best photos taken from a drone, Dronestagram from National Geographic, that he was given the first place.
