The tallest building in the world should be in the bustling and crowding city.. Not
in the (seemingly) deserted city as in this picture... Oh well...

Has there ever been a project that is fully occupied before it is fully completed ?

For this pic I also played with a B&W layer, because the mix of colours in the original caused serious eye cancer

That Facebook page is owned/run by the same company that runs the burj-khalifa.eu website. They also have a Burj Khalifa Facebook page.

Bunch of scraping scumbags. I've had to issue many, many DMCA takedowns to get my images off their sites in the past.
Using the pics is one thing, I don't have much of a problem with that, provided that credit is given. BUT... After checking the link I found them using my pics on FB having ERASED the watermark

Two choices.

1. DMCA to their hosting company (one notice per image - spread them out over a number of days). Separately DMCA Facebook.

2. Get legal on their arses. I'm signing a contract next week with a stock image company who will actively chase all prior infringements that I have documented, and who will keep a very close eye on any future infringements. There are some property agencies in Dubai who are in for some very nasty surprises in the next few weeks.

I have found 8 of my images so far, all cropped in order to remove the watermarks. I have reported the infringement and now wait for things to happen...

@Imre
I think I came across DOZENS of your pics while browsing their galeries

Cheers

Dubai is a joke as a city, no more than cars and towers. There's money only for fews who are living around the petrol biz.
