I got to the Burj Khalifa very late the day I was there. The problem was, that when I booked my ticket (around a week before my trip) all the good time were already completely sold out. Of course no chance for a sunset time, but luckily, I got one for my last day in Dubai, for the blue hour. Of course when I got up, it was already after the blue hour, but that just means that next time I’m booking my ticket a month before my visit :)

This is a HDR from 4 shots, created in Oloneo Photoengine, finished in Photoshop. I took this one through the glass wall there, as I wanted more reflection from the building, and my tripod was not high enough to get enough over the wall.
