Thursday is the final day of the Dubai Air Show (معرض دبي للطيران), where $162.6 billion of aircraft has been ordered so far, shattering past records. Dynamic displays have taken over the Gulf region's skies for the last five days, and Instagrammers were there to capture the aerial acrobatics. The event, which started as a trade show and was first held at Dubai International Airport in 1989, took place at Dubai World Central, in Jebel Ali, Dubai. It attracts some of the biggest companies in the air industry and is well established as one of the top aerospace events in the world.

Welcome to another #ArtThursday! This week takes us to the heart of Seoul and the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Korea, where visitors are finding a peculiar, life-size home nested within the walls of another home. The full name of the 12x15m (40x49ft) giant installation is "Home Within Home Within Home Within Home Within Home" (집 속의 집 속의 집 속의 집 속의 집), and it's the largest work by Korean artist Do-Ho Suh (서도호) to date. Made to scale out of layers of translucent blue silk, the two houses are exact replicas of residences the artist lived in as a child in Korea and in the United States. The effect is a pair of disorienting, 3D blueprints that visitors to the Seoul Box area of the museum can walk through until 14 May 2014. For more views from inside Do-Ho Suh's "Home Within Home Within Home Within Home Within Home," browse the #dohosuh and #서도호 hashtags or tap the blue location text above. Photo by @reumbo
Rob Masao McCarthy (@wrongrob) is a father of three in Brooklyn, New York. Outside of his day job as a freelance digital media consultant and photographer, Rob gets his thrills scaling New York City's tallest bridges, trams, roofs and skyscrapers to shoot the city from above. "I first developed an interest in photography shooting street portraits of the people of New York City. Then I realized that I was really interested in the city itself as a subject," he says. "I discovered that the higher up and further away I got, the more the immense city was reduced to shapes, lines and angles. There is a peace and universality in that geometry that I really like. Somehow it makes the city more human." Want to refine the compositions of your cityscapes? Here are Rob's tips: Pay attention to depth of field in your frame. Try to include a distinct foreground, middle ground and background, which helps create a sense of scale and distance. A mix of different building heights helps too. Look for an interesting street angle within the buildings that will draw your viewers into the photo. Avoid shooting straight in front of you and placing the primary subject in the middle of the frame. To add atmosphere and mood to cityscape shots, shoot on cloudy or rainy days. Hard, bright light is not your friend! Stay safe and law-abiding, of course, but if you're trying to get to a building's upper levels, skip the elevator and look for the stairs. You'll be surprised where you end up. To view more photos and videos from a bird’s-eye perspective of New York, be sure to follow @wrongrob.
