That picture is astonishingly beautiful. Almost looks surreal in fact. Like it was taken in some sort of dream land.

That's because it had visual effects applied to it.

Please use the English language in this section of the forums.

How do you tell how many exposures are in an HDR image?

his friend took this photo so he might have just asked him about it.

a bit overdone for my taste (too fantasy looking), but i respect the artistic eye

It's not just you. Somebody ask the good Sheikh to install red lights on the overpasses. Knowing Dubai, they might just do it. The Interchange of Love will be an eternal icon for the city.

I actually think we need more people who dislike the Burj Dubai to contribute to the discussions here. First of all, it is nice to have multiple viewpoints. And second, there are too few discussions and too many images. Having people come here and saying why they hate the Burj Dubai would make this thread better.
