whats wrong with that,,, sorry if I left you out..

I can see why we would never get told as the level of friends telling freinds would be an issue.

SHZ road would end up being a car park of on lookers

I figured the HDR version of the Business Bay panorama is not as good as one of the respective basic pictures with 15s at f11. Since I really loved the view from that spot (and I hope some of you did too) I thought I'd provide more versions of that panorama

A panorama without HDR merging (stitched from the original pics with 15s at f11):



Click on the above picture for the large version of 5416x2200

And for those of you who use two widescreens as a desktop here comes a split version in 1920x1200 each for left and right screen



Click on the left and the right picture to download them for your desktop as a wallpaper.

Unfortunately I had to cut the water reflections in order to fit it to the widescreen format. That is only because Burj Dubai is so damn tall

Which software are you using for HDR, I have been having a go with Photomatrix 3, but I am not so good on the software kind of thing.

I have only used paint for the last 20 years,,, With microsoft picture editors.

Going to start to learn photoshop basic's as I should really get round to it.

I checked several proggies, but got stuck with easyHDR. Photomatix returned weird results when I fed it with pictures and easHDR came up with decent results automatically. I know that one should manually adjust the results anyway, but for beginners that is much easier with a picture which is not presented in bright rainbow colors. Photomatix results usually looked like an Andy Warhol poster in the first place.

Also, Photomatix is roughly three times the price of easyHDR and I found the latter is better to handle.

The building is already beautiful, but without cranes and when finished it is by far the best looking skyscraper ever! Thanks for the pics Imre.
