At this moment the Burj Dubai seems to be standing quite alone.

it is, you can see how big it is in comparison to SZR towers.

and it looks like it stands totally alone, but there is so much going on around it in fact

That core shot of the SWFC is nice and does show some of what was described. It was posted over in the SWFC thread quite awhile back but I guess there's nothing wrong to use it for comparsion and illustrative purposes. Still one of the best shots of that tower I think!

Thanks for the BD update.

Excellent, but I wonder how those 'dancing towers' will stay upright, they look like they could fall any second
