Sunset should be even better tonight. Get down there snapping (unfortunately I don't have the time as I've got some packing to do)!

Hi all.

Great shots Sale.
Was there some kind of event going on in the dusk shots from the 10th ?
I ask because I see few lights on in the Burj.
Trying to determin if workers have the day off or if things are getting close to completion.

Thanks.

Maybe Eid,, but I went home by 7.

you should pm gerald as he has many great images but he wont put them online.

He did some high rez full building shots, 20 images on his 5dmrk2 canon.

FYI fountain where going every 20 minutes, rather than 30.


P.S why don't you have an avatar...?

Also Gerald images are being shown in NYC, so contact him for the guest list.

Have you received any promises or heard any rumours about when you can go home?

I will do that .

Again, I wonder if that is because there was an event going on.

Never even thought about it ...
Hmmm ... you think a BK pic would be fitting for me ?

I'll probably never be in NYC anyway for various reasons ...

I'm very interested in finding out why there are very few lights on in your shots. Workers have the day off or they're nearing completion ?
I'm going to try to approximate the date of completion of the whole of the works since it is unlikely we will see any press release on the subject so input from as many sources as possible will be helpful.

Eid holiday, that's why so many people and so few lights.

Are you saying there was only 10 minutes intervals between the shows?

example of a 10-22mm lense on a canon 350d, no tripod, no after effects, just driving past.

I was also surprised by the ability of the Canon 10-22 to capture great at night despite a max aperture of just f3.5. Probably is the big lens diameter (77 mm)

Was wondering how far we could be away from the khalifa and still see it.

Technically, you should be able to see the top from approx. 207 km /if the visibility would be so/.
