Really? See, I always think the Dubai skyline is too linear. From most angles, it always looks like a string of towers lined up along a freeway. The skyline never shows good density because of this linear effect. From the view point of the second picture, you get the illusion of layering and density. That is why I like it. Plus since it is taken at street level it really gives you a sense of scale

I agree. It was refreshing to see an angle of Dubai that wasn't from Sheikh Zayed Highway or the marina for once.
