Ooh.

I think I may have found a way to rescue my skewed 3.2 gigapixel shot of the Burj

Just got to wait a couple of days for the computer to stitch it all together.

I have a Q8300 at work, but only a n330 at home. What a difference 4 cores makes

Came across a few pics taken from inside the tower.
The floor hight makes me think it could possibly be taken from the observation level. Original album can be found here.

Some of the workers.


Views.

Hi all.

Hi 234.
I'm liking your new pano skills - great work.

Hi Adam.
Nice find. Yes it does look like the observation level based on the poster on the window.



This must be the underground route from the mall to the observatory elevator lobby I presume. A bit more curvy than I would have thought ...

Is the bottom right of that drawing the Metro station?

And on that subject, are there any details available of how the Metro station will connect to the Burj?

Great view! Meeting there sounds good, provided they have Corona buckets

Just joking of course.
