Ok, i'm a nooby, but pleas tell me what's that project. That's like a crossing between the Empire state building and the WTC twin towers. God it looks nice.

Thers no shadow of planes on the ground (in the direction of Burj dubai's shadow)

Shadows of the planes are well out of the pic area (project form the top of BD shadow on the ground...should be far left).
