i didn't do correcton at all, this is all just a quick and simple photoshop edit, Taipei101 is a tad too tall, SWFC a tad too small (470m to be exact)

Anyway, the skyline is growing!

It makes you realize how bland the architecture of this building is compared to all the other great buildings of the world. While it's the tallest it's certainly not the best looking.

Very nice pictures, especially the comparison

I went out for some pics again, this time I made several panoramas. The first one shows both skylines, New and Old Dubai. The lighting differs due to automatic white balance , so unfortunately you can see the stitching (6 pics stitched together). Pic was taken from the road leading from Arabian Ranches Intersection towards Um Suqeim.
