I wonder how many kilometers long the Burj's shadow is here! You can almost see the shadow of the Earth racing across the Gulf in the distance :-)

Nice shots of the Burj but the beach needs some beautiful women in bikinis.

that photo from the index is great. it also shows how burjDubai shouldnt be classified as a supertall. its in another catogory. look how insignificant burj lake hotel looks at that 1000ft tall.

Looking at the aerial view it gets hard to imagine that five years ago the whole area around the Burj was only covered in sand.

One big for the Visionaries in Dubai.

I think it's highly annoying. It's not like I'd come here to mock users, but you have to scroll through hundreds of pages to get any information with all those loads of spam. Is that what an architecture/skyscraper forum is all about?
I sort of agree, people really like to ogle at this thing aloud. But they are allowed to do so...so what can you do?
