I believe yours is more accurate, there's something about the perspective and the angle of the view, and it's clear you took that in considerations.

I can not believe you guys are going back and forth about which non-professional sketch looks correct or not
You guys really need to get out more and have a Beer

Yah, we know the name of your game: the most professional thing - is not to attempt anything (just occasionally shooting from rooftops). Gimme your best headshot on that!

I tried pixel calculation on burg khalifa. Here is the result and the reason why the ultra strech picture doesn't make any sence.

If 72m is the top of the second line, 72 - 48 = 24m, and 24 - 48 = -24. So are you telling me that the base of the Burj is -24m?

If it would become something like 600 m, the Prince would never have announced a 1-kilometer height for KT.

The #Kingdom City will provide a resort-like #lifestyle with residential apartments and hotels surrounded by crystal lagoons, as well as private or semi-private residential compounds.
