Thanks Imre for updates, so some people love burn gas and play with cars.

Dude, Imre.

Your pics of Burj Dubai have always been great, but these last few days you're just on a roll. More insanely amazing day by day. Massive kudos!

Wow man! That's amazing at the clarity of detail you can pick out on the closest zooms. This was all painstakingly shot with the 5D2 right?

I half-joke that maybe Emaar could reference your shot to take care of all the little missing bits around the tower, such as the lack of transoms I think around the 98th floor window below the crane (third from the left).

Guessing you shot this from Neo's? It's about the only place I could think of where you can get a lot of the BD in focus without distortion until you go higher up the tower. It's nice to see the sharpness hold out even near the top (you can read the Favco logos on the highest crane when zoomed in).

Thanks for taking the time and having the patience to stitch everything together - even if it's not perfect it's still great.

*Edit* Watched all the video links as well - very informative!

AltinD - Thanks for the heads up regarding the filtration systems. That would more than likely explain why the lake is how it is at the moment. It *is* still a construction site after all.
