OK here we go:

First, those are around 150 pictures,

if anyone of you has special requests, i have some 300 left showing roughly the same, but might show what you look for.

Second, all of them were taken at 8MP, so zooming in is possible, again, close ups of anything, just ask.

Third, i increased Contrast on all the pictures to see more details, however quality lacks. Again, i can post the original images if you want any specific one.

Superb photos flo!

Atlantis looks huge! Burj Dubai photos are amazing but the view looks like it may be a bit boring from up there after a while actually

that is what i have been saying for ages, higher than 100m and you will not see much happening, you are cut from live down.

that can be either an advantage or disadvantage, according to every individual's taste.

as for the video, since there will be no Dubai Megaprojects in the near future, i have decided to do this one more or less properly with music, takes some more time. tomorrow maybe
