I've had another go at making the Burj stand out

From where is that made, all exactly the same angle, I first thought it was from a plane, but it would be to coincidal.
BTW you should paste Eiffel tower or some other widely known structure in there, so people can see how high it really is.

BTW, at sunset today there was this amazing reflective fiery glow in the tower. It does happen from time to time, and is always a sight to behold.

They are different edits of the same image

@Face81
I find that one a bit too intense (no offence!)

@Sale
I am stunned by the nice effect in that one. Did you apply a blur filter in Photoshop? The colors are also enhanced and blended nicely

@Altin
Oooh noooo... don't tell me today was one of these days...
We should have a messaging system to let each other know when these things happen! You were also right about that clear day last monday. Too bad I only realized it a day later.

I realized that Monday was a super clear day when I was comming back from work at around 5:30 PM and could see BK from Jebel Ali (Interchange 8) and The Address and some other towers too.

As for the Burj reflection, I saw it at around 7 PM when went out to go somewhere.
