Wow, incredible pictures
They're still testing this lights, a green laser at the lower levels, lots of strobo's and big moving spots at the setbacks, looks pretty cool!

This is an older picture but i think it's worth to post it.

It's from the 25th october and was shot from the Skyview Bar at the Burj al Arab.

Light Show

This is impressive to see.

Pictures taken an hour ago showing the BD spotlights, and also the new Metro line laser ad system reflected onto the Metro.

From what I've seen so far, when BD is completed, its light show might beat Hong Kong's light show. Great pictures, each one makes me like this project even more.
