Great shot!

Dubai is on my short list of places to visit soon. Will definitely have to bring the camera ;)

Great composition, but I think the border detracts from the over all effect.

Great photo, and a sweet building - but Dubai itself is a bit tacky in my opinion... High wow-factor, but no unity of style..!

There was a discovery channel special about this, and a structure that is in the design stage, but will dwarf this, and every other building in the world.
