Floors reach 245m high,rest is the spire, so 245/60= 4.083m I think this mostly the same with most of the towers.

This last one is about the reflection in the cladding, right?
Hmmm... it's not so easy with the slightly curved facade and the distorted look. I think the dark thing shown on the right condo tower could be the BD Lake Hotel, standing in your back... but where's the mighty Burj Dubai? I'm a bit confused...

Edit: or you were just joking, Imre - and these two are the winners in the "BD-look-alike-contest"

hehe, Imre took the picture, they are what he says they are

The BD stretching all the way up to the balconies at the penthouse level and as wide as the entire glass facade most of the way up. It is easy to overlook though.

Stunning picture!

I took all those greyish parts for clouds and assumed the BD located somewhere to the right of Imre.
