Even if Dubai is not my dream, I must admit that is a wonderful picture

Hi all.

Hi Gerald.
Great stuff !!
Hey, why is there what looks like a cover (or something) over the pinnacle platform in the pano ? Did you have to do some 'shop because it didn't look right ??

Thanks.


Ray.

Hi Ray -

The pinnacle itself isn't in image, because in addition to the 48 shots taken for the spherical panorama, I shot around the outside of spire so that you got a full view of the grounds around the Burj.

Kinda hard to explain without showing what the panorama looks like before those additional shots are stitched in, and I can't share that

If I'd not shot the additional shots, then a circle out as far as the Souk Al Bahar bridge would have been blocked by the rim of the pinnacle, and also the aircraft beacons and lightning conductor would have blocked off huge portions of the image.

What you see in the middle of the image is actually the sides of the spire.

Regards,

Gerald.
