nice job, I DID eliminate those lines. And in my opinion jabal-an-nur is not the best place to photograph Makkah skyline. Its the intersection of Al-Hajj Street and Al-sail road (The other Taif highway) at sunset, its a beautiful view. But you need to photograph it in panoramic mode. So can "hairee" (what kind of a name is that?) do us a favour? Or since you're coming in 3 weeks, can you do it?
