Haha, cool! Great pictures. As the Burj doesn't change a lot anymore, the photographers get more creative..
Hope to see some views from 675 meters...

Burj Dubai - Level 157

Here's a view from level 157. This was taken back in June 2008 during my site visit, excuse the quality, it was taken from my mobile camera.

Hi all.

Change of plans ... ?
Hi Altin.

Yes I realize the small wing and 2 small half wings are completed on tier 23. I was referring to the 2 small half wings of tier 22. They are 19.2 meters high and are on the North side of the pinnacle pipe. I have shown them in this print. I call them half wings for lack of a better term - they are each "half" of a small wing ...



The crane is at the bottom of the print as is the second larger wing that still has 2 sections to be added to yet.



Hi Imre.

Another great shot. The fact that it is from the same section as the base of the pinnacle pipe tells me the pic from yesterday was also taken from this section. As I posted yesterday the shot inside the pinnacle pipe was taken from much lower than tier 27.



Hi Omar.

Nice shot.

At the end of June '08 the top of the BD was at section 19B and the top of that is 662.5 meters. Your shot was not from the top of the steel work as there was no concrete up there at the highest sections at that time. The 719 written on the concrete must mean something else. Your shot is most likely from a concrete slab lower down in the steel section or higher up in the concrete section of the structure.

I'm not trying to be an ******* - just stating the facts. As I said it is a nice shot and I like many wish we could go on a site visit of the BD.

Those lighting shots are jaw-dropping! Either someone used a lot of exposures to get them right, timed it very well, or did something I'm not sure how to do yet. Crazy!

if an alien landed on earth and wanted to see our tallest edifice, i would be honoured to show him Burj Dubai. 3 years ago i wouldnt been happy to show taipei 101.
just didnt do it for me.
now i would be proud as a human to build such a structure.

The original - the only time I've ever done any post-processing was when I stitched 8 shots together to make my monster pic of the Burj (incidentally, if anyone's going to Gulf Print next week, do pop down to the Canon stand - they're hoping to have a 40 foot tall print of my Burj Dubai photo on display ).

Lens was a Canon 24-104L f4.0.
