Of course I also had to visit the Burj Khalifa. I just love these high up places. To bad, that the floor on the observation deck is covered with wood, and so shakes a little every-time someone walks by. But I opened my lens more and cranked up the ISO to get a little faster shots, and so the sharpness is still acceptable :)

Now I just have to hope that someone builds a higher building, so I have a new high place to go to, to beat this one :)

This is a HDR created from 4 exposures in Oloneo Photoengine and blended with the original exposures to correct the bright areas and moving cars.
