It looks like the tower could easily snap with one poke at it.

I have a question. How much will the apartments cost? I'm poor and I know I will never be able to afford one, but I'm curious.

Haven't been following this thread much, but I have to say this is a pretty tall building.

Burj Dubai still amazes me. I've been following this super structure from its planning 'til now but it never ceased to amaze me.

Imre, what is the ISO value in your camera when you're taking these Dubai pictures? Your photos are pretty noisy. Picture quality would be better if you set your camera slower ISO speed.

AAAAWEEEESOOOOMEEEE IMRE
spectacular, and the other guys that regularly post some pics here, your work is appreciated more then you think
but IMRE is the champ, and by far, just look at the crisp quality of the upper floors, and details that he knows we love to see, for exsample IT is obvious that they are preparing now the foundations for the third crane to be introduced, you can see it on one of imres great pics (the triangular shape thingy)
to bad your internet connection is bothering you, but belive me when I say that it is allso bothering hundreds if not thousands of people from all around the world

One quest. ... Is every steel floor like 6 meters? does that mean that these 10 steelflors completed are allready over 60 mt tall???? WOW, that is allmost as high as our highest structure in Iceland, and that is like 20 floors, amazing, loving it

the heat must be killing those workers today, my lord

Thanks Imre!

The steel section is really starting to show the setbacks and looks really clean right now. Will it be ready to clad by the time the cladding reaches the steel?

The progress of the tower is amazing, they're building this monster sooo fast. BTW, that camels look interested on it. Maybe they're forumers too?

I kind of think focusing on the camels was not the objective of the photos, but they are kinda funny. anyway, I haven't seen any images this current. That thing's getting really tall! and I thought 20 floors of windows was current. It just amazes me the speed that things get done over there.

He does not use a D-SRL but a Panasonic Lumix FZ50. Since I use a very similar camera, there is nothing you can do to eleminate the noise in the image. Not with the big zooming involved and the sand and dust particles filled air.
