Finding it hard to tell if thats sarcasm or not? I hope it is, that area looks great, probably the first shot that of Dubai that has made me go 'it would be nice to go there'........Other then to see the buildings of course, looks like a nice place

Ha, yes I think it's sarcasm. For me it's also one of the better shots of that district.

Went to see Mission Impossible last night. You can see Princess Tower in a night shot. When tom cruise leaves the billionnaires palace in the car, which is supposed to be set in India. the billionnaires palace scene has been shot in a hotel on the palm.

What were you expecting from a bunch closely packed of 400 meter towers?

I think the only difference between this (http://www.travel-images.com/pht/brazil78.jpg) and these towers is that the ones at the bay are just way taller and have more storeys.
