no idea, I have around 150.000 pics of Dubai or UAE , last time when I organised , was about 30-35.000 pics of Burj Dubai , many pics similar so dont know exactly.

Usually I am posting around 40% of pics what I take into my picasa picasa album , before I used the flickr but the DU has been blocking since April.

If I ever have a time I will organise my all pics

A model poses in a designer "Abaya" by Emirati fashion designer Lamia Abdin in front of Burj Dubai, one of the world's tallest buildings, in the Gulf emirate on October 13, 2009. Abdin has made modern alternative designs of the traditional Emirati female dress which is usually a loose, black robe worn by Muslim women with a head cover. AFP PHOTO/MARWAN NAAMANI

Uh... "one of the tallest buildings in the world"? More like "the tallest manmade structure on earth".

I find an interesting information on "40 Years of the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (1969-2009)" page 26

http://www.ctbuh.org/Publications/Bo...B/Default.aspx

they considered to adopt criteria for multiples entrances buildings (Burj Dubai and Trump Tower) to measure height from the lowest entrance.
