or maybe, it would be a bit too early.. as far as I remember, did he buy a new camera some 8 months ago... or maybe I am wrong..
but donīt want to come off topic..

Theres no challenger for Imre and no competition. I dont think there is anyone that could dedicate as much time to most of the Dubai projects and not just the BD that Imri commits to the forums.

Imre (and me also for that matter) has a x12 zoom Leica lenses, that translates to 36 - 432.

I live in a city where the tallest building is 150 metres - I can't even begin to comprehend how huge this thing looks - amazing!

Hi all.

Here is another pic to plan comparison as we have reached the top of another tier. Thanks to OTR for the shot - it is just before he got his new toy but this is a better angle for this purpose.

[IMG]http://i38.************/1skqk3.jpg[/IMG]

The next section is the first of tier 21 and will have a terrace/setback facing 240 degrees.

Here is a crude shopped print of the floor/start of tier 21 showing the terrace on the left. I had to shop it up as I didn't have a print of this. We can see the smaller wings that face the same directions as the wings of the previous 3 tiers. This is the only time this happens from tier 12 to the top as any other set of 3 terraces is rotated 60 degrees from the next set of 3.

[IMG]http://i37.************/2pryyhx.jpg[/IMG]

After the setback tier 21 continues up symetrically with 3 wings. Here is another crude shop of the start of tier 22 ( again I had to make one ) that shows the shape and size of the 19.2 m. high tier 21.

[IMG]http://i38.************/xubex.jpg[/IMG]

Tier 21 should be interesting with the major change in both the size and layout of the structural members that is starting in section 20B. They will also have to either start building the pinnacle ( that starts in section 20B ) or leave room for it in the middle so they can build and lift it later. I'm thinking the latter - we shall see.

Great time for us skyscraper fans - watching the structure of a lifetime grow.

Wow, the Burj Dubai looks positively imposing and stunning now (I just looked at the latest ground-level pictures for the first time in months).

What an incredible structure.
