If you have ever been in Dubai during a hazy summer sunset, you would know that the sun looks exactly like that because of the thick humid lower section of the atmosphere, you can easily look at the sun for 10 minutes it is so weak, it's not making you blind. There is also a degrade, getting darker on the bottom, same as in the picture. I can tell this picture is taken far away from Burj Dubai at the sunset time looking to the west. So where is the real sun? There is some sort of photoshop or filtering of course but I believe there is nothing fake thereNot a professional by any means but that reddish photo seems doable enough with the right clear weather, filter and evening sky. In fact, I'd say the photo including the red sky is real - just the sun isn't, unless it's so underexposed to appear yellow-gold instead of more blinding as normal. Even if concrete walls blocked the rays, to see no light through the tower at the angles and distances apart on wings of the windows that we know is highly unlikely.
Maybe there's something I'm not understanding either as to how to achieve a true effect like this but regardless the photo is very cool and a good attempt at least to photoshop if indeed it was done.
Back to a more on topic subject. Imre, those shots rock as others said for showing the massive scale. Thanks for showing us that "Beach Road" photo to update us on the difference since I think the last time one of those was taken was when we were still watching concrete. That third shot down the road though is crazy!
