I can't wait to see Burj Dubai fully occupied at night, filled with lights. Right now it looks like a ghost-skyscraper.

Really nice manipulation Imre!

...On secondhand, watch someone in Dubai present it to be built as an up and coming "future" tower XD. A cross-shaped tower would look crazy, provided you could solve the cantilever loads problem.

You need to go into PT Gui's options and lower the default wide angle focal length below which it assumes the lens is a fisheye.

No se cómo lo hacen

A very high degree of photoshopping, where in this case the artists thought process really does not look like what is actually there.

If I ever come across a sky like that in Dubai, I will advise the Centre for radioactive mutants to give me a look over.

Oh and I see that the flags are now up outside the BD in bottom pic.
