The bottom line: They are not worth the asking price, no way near it ... even if divided by 10 actually.

Bottom line for me. I like them, i can`t reproduce them 1:1 but i wouldn`t pay that much for the pics.

I would like to come but i am not sure. Dubai spring 2011, Singapore 2012 or Singapore spring 2011 and Dubai spring 2012. The bigges reason for me waiting another year is that they haven`t completed the second metro line.

Altin any advice?

In Ukraine, killing the dogs before the Euro 2012

The organization of EURO 2012 became the pretext for the authorities of Ukraine to the mass extermination of stray animals living on the streets. streets. For this purpose, inter alia, purchased Lisicziansk Mobile crematorium, by which, in theory utilizes the killed animals, in practice throwing a vivid, sometimes only stunned or anaesthetized by pharmacological means.

In Kiev and other cities to the extermination of the poison used, resulting in long and painful agony of the animals. Officially, the dogs buried in mass graves, calling it "method of soil mineralization. Representatives of organizations defending the rights of animals in Ukraine reported that the dealings, which are spent enormous financial resources, is highly corrupt - the majority of funds for this purpose is stolen, resulting in the killing of animals without retaining any procedures, at the lowest cost.

September 18, 2009 in Nikolayev city departments have carried out a massive campaign winding dogs. Witnesses saw how the dogs were shot in broad daylight, their corpses were lying in public places. Part of the poisoned animals - used small doses of poisons, which is why the dogs died slowly and in pain. The carcasses of dead dogs are exported out of town and there were buried in mass graves.

In the mass liquidation of dogs killed the pets that have got lost, which are waiting at home owners. The ditch in Lugano, volunteers found a dog with a visible trace of the collar. It turned out that it was the dog that fit the description of the animal, in Lugansk sought by his owner. The woman identified the dead animal to have a photograph taken by volunteers.

"He was quiet, gentle and well mannered dog. He was loved by car park security, custodians, drivers. He was very trusting towards people. It is not known if he had been given poison. However, suffered the longest, was still able to crawl under the car and hide, hoping to survive. But the poison has performed its task. The killer did not take the dog. “Mischka” was lying dead in the parking lot two days. "

Unwanted and Forgotten Foundation - SOS for Animals plans to make a petition directly to the Ukrainian authorities as well as through the Polish authorities, as co-organizers of the championships, to exert pressure on their partners. Call to stop the disgraceful laundering will also be directed to the football associations, UEFA, the Football Association and other institutions responsible for organizing the EURO 2012.

Also, you can protest against the treatment of animals bestial Ukraine and join those already protesting the site Wirtualni.wp.pl . Organizers will also encourage the shares to join the protest on Facebook. For more information, please visit the Foundation www.niechcianeizapomniane.org .

,,so your saying the artistic quality is to make the building look shorter.

Maybe he wanted to frame it in a standard portrait ratio, so he had to compress the image.

He should do a portrait of Sarah Jessica Parker, then she could loses her stigma ..

The interior view of BK apartments, those apartments which are for rent or even for sale, are indeed really good; those particurarly (above) are for rent probably...

He showed the building how you see it with your own eyes when you stand infront of it. The amount of money he can charge for his work shows, that he do something right.

No he didn't. The building does NOT look like that at all when you stand in front of it. That's why I suggested on my first post on the issue that you should come over and see it with your own eyes.

Those interior shots are pretty nice. I particularly like the second from bottom (hallway/lobby of some kind)

Check out the video on this website - the one with the people in the helicopter - it really gives a sense of just how tall this thing is. Absurd.

You can buy the international copyright to this image for 1,000 pounds... paypal accepted

taken today, Driving past, this evening in the car at traffic.

I waited all of 1 second to get the artistic bs right,, The guy in forground, plane in background...
That was tough...

PLEASE.. Trust me, the sales pitch is all ego... Nothing Else

Tom, honestly,,, it's a 2 sec pic,, look at it and then scroll down,


Next week I will be taking an image from exactly the same location as Stu what ever his name is, has been trying to flog for 24,000 AED. It will be slightly different as I took it, but look exactly as crap.

P.S Maybe I should frame this wrong to add artistic measure
