Same size as the one linked to earlier, just less jpg compression.

(It is however only around 1/15th the number of pixels of the full version though)
Stunning Gerald!! Was the original a single frame from the 5D Mark II or did you put a few together to create this shot? *Edit* sorry I see the crane cable split in two so I suppose my question is answered. The detail is still shocking though!

Well spotted. I hadn't even noticed the crane was moving when I took the shots, and was very annoyed when I noticed it after the PC had spent close to 48 hours creating the panorama.

It's actually 77 separate photos stitched together.

Slightly different version here where you can actually see the full detail (this one has a stitching error in it - I keep meaning to fix it, but haven't got around to it yet!)

RE: Interior Work

After flipping through the various interior shots that Imre posted a link to a few pages back you start to grasp the HUGE amount of work involved inside. So much of the attention here has been focused so far on the exterior which only makes sense, but while we have been following along as each panel of cladding is installed there are a ga-zillion things going on inside and it is hard to get your brain around the amount of human effort, toil, and attention to detail that all is requiring. When you think about a project of this scale and all of the electrical, fire sprinklers, elevators, sheetrock, plumbing, HVAC, finish work, painting, light fixtures, phone/data, baseboard, carpeting and all of the high tech systems, etc etc... it really can boggle the mind and give a big appreciation for the army of laborers,technicians and specialty trades that are swarming all over that place...even if from the outside it seems like little has changed from day to day at times. This makes it only more frustrating that there is such a mania against interior photography

Dubai has been built in majority by subcontinent workers, they are amazing and I respect them...

No way could the west ever replicate what has happened over the last 5 years and it probably wont happen again for some time..

they just do their jobs and need the money, that is all.

if they could make less children while being poor and jobless and control the constantly growing population back home, they will be able to build their own huge supertalls someday back in their own country.

I believe she was referring to India. Not that that makes her comment any less ignorant.

This has probably already been said 100 times but when will it be finished? 6 Months ago they said around september 2009 but seems there is at least 6 months more work to do.

The west is not going to replicate this growth of Dubai because it doesnt need to, but any country that has money could replicate what has happened in Dubai in the past 5 years.

Truth or ignorance.

I think you will find what Charlette stated is backed up by considerable facts.

Anyway this crap has been battered out till it bleeds.

That sounds very unrealistic. Do you have a source for that?

There was just a news report here in North Dakota talking about how the Burj Dubai has surpassed the KVLY mast, and they ended the report saying that the building "might" be extended to 2600 feet. Grade A reporting, people.
