I planned to go and take pictures with the aim of trying to catch a view of the presumably Ferrari located on one of the terraces 615 meters up there but then I was feeling tired from the late lunch and took a 2 hours nap ... maybe tomorrow will go.

Hi Altin.
If it is a car it's a miniature IMO.
Perhaps a generator ?
Interested to see your shots though.

Hi Imre.

Thanks for the input.
Do you remember what level that is ? It doesn't look very high up by the look of it.
The terrace in question in Geralds giant pano is level 159.
The item in question does look close to that color alright but doesn't look as square.
A long lens shot from the right angle should help but an aerial showing that terrace clearly would be good.
I'm sticking to my guess of a genset or perhaps a few different sizes sitting beside each other.

Not too high, I think it was just the 43rd floor.

Visible some wood boxes some places but no idea what is that:

Hi all.

Hi Imre.
I didn't think of looking through your shots from the top of the pinnacle. I gotta say again just how utterly fantastic that set of shots is - breathtaking.
As they are from 09 12 31 the item in question in Geralds world record pano isn't on level 159 terrace yet. There are 2 boxes on it as there are on a few terraces - I think the boxes are gensets like your prev. post shows. The terrace faces top left in the first 2 shots in your last post.

Hi Gerald.
Great find.
Here is a crop showing the item(s) in question from your pano on level 159 terrace. Definitely not the big boxy gensets used earlier but perhaps some smaller units sitting beside each other ?

Hi Guys, I was in an apartment yesterday and I have pictures, only problem is I'm not exactly a photographer, how can i watermark the images, as I really don't want people (agents) to steal them, and publish an apartment with no permission.

FYI - the finishing is good, on par with The Address, Downtown, nice kitchen appliances "Miele'', I was in a Sea View apartment on low floor but was still nice, the fountain views will be amazing at night!

Let me know if you need anymore information and waiting to hear from you regarding the photo issue.

Thanks.

They will not allow any freeloaders onto the premises which is pretty much like the Burk Al Arab, and no doubt will have a similar entry fee that will be discounted against the money spent.
It is a nightmare, I had to wait 48 hours, I had to give driving license, passport, car registration. LOL! no joke...

Hi DXB.
Good news to hear the fit and finish looks good.
As for info - any and all you have time to type out will be welcome - by me anyway. What area were you in (low floor) and if not yours how did you get in to view it ?

As for the watermark so we can see your shots I think photoshop has that cabability but I'm sure there are free and better options. I for one am very interested in seeing them. I find it hard to believe I'm the only one - every other page in this thread has a post wanting to see interior shots.

Imre, Gerald, Sale, OTR, Altin - help please. What do you use for watermarks ?
