This is really a nice 5 star hotel.  If you think it already looks good, well, you should see how it looks at night!

wiki: The ‘The Address Downtown Burj Dubai’ is a super tall skyscraper rising 306 meters (1,004 feet) alongside the Dubai Mall, the Old Town, and the Burj Dubai Lake in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. This hotel and residential tower contains a total of 63 floors. The tower is another supertall structure in the massive development named Downtown Burj Dubai, which includes the centerpiece supertall building, the Burj Dubai. The tower was topped out in April 2008, becoming the 6th-tallest building in Dubai and the 36th-tallest in the world. In September 2008, the tower was completed.

  1. Hey Mike,

    I really thought this was an HDR at first glance. I tried to shoot this building in the summer for some reason (when there were no clouds) but I just could not find the right angle to shoot it from on the bridge so threw away the shots. You seem to have it nailed. Great shot.

    • Thanks Jason, I appreciate your kind words.

      That was taken last Saturday. I got lucky with clouds (finally!). I have another picture with the Burj dubai, I might be posting that later tonight.

      Somehow it does looks like hdr, I guess the reflection of the sun from the water made it work like a reflector 🙂
