photoblog image Burj Khalifa

Burj Khalifa

There are two reasons why this image kept languishing in my archives. One is that I tend not to like the portrait setup especially when viewing images on the screen. And the other is that the spots on my lens are painfully visible here.

Clean off those spots, then, Ayush!

If you made a second copy, twiddled it a bit, then created a montage, it might look better on the screen...or not...
Ayush Basu: Now that's a thought (about the montage).
I know I should get it done but have been putting it off for a long while now, Ray.
Spots can be cloned out. Impressive building Ayush
Ayush Basu: True enough, just feel lazy imagining the amount of extra work involved. But this shot is definitely a candidate for that cloning treatment, Bill!
Yah - well - what an amazing place!!!!
Ayush Basu: thank you very much Elizabeth, it sure is something at least for its engineering feat if nothing else.
Dust should be easy enough to post process. What a truly stark monument to excess.
Ayush Basu: True enough, not that easy to subdue my laziness, I am afraid.

This thing is vast!

Wht don't you clone the spots out?
Ayush Basu: Yes in hindsight. But after having already uploaded, I was just plain lazy.

So, everyone is telling you what you can do with those spots, Ayush. Surely you have the tools to do it???
Ayush Basu: Ah yes Ginnie, the tools I have but not the ability to overcome my laziness (in this case) tongue
Shame about the spots, but some subjects are just made for portrait and this is one........I really like it, Ayush smile Did you ascend?
Ayush Basu: As far as they would let me grin. I think the elevator stops 4 floors below the max level
I realized when spring cleaning that some of the shots in the unassigned bin are there for a reason. I have two spots on my sensor or mirror or somewhere that I have to clone out each time.
Ayush Basu: I am also currently in the midst of clearing out my archives, I was just too lazy to take it back to photoshop, clone out the specks and upload once more Mary tongue
Like something out of ' Metropolis', Ayush, an amazing building.
Ayush Basu: Thank you Frank. it sure is something, at least for its engineering if nothing else.
It makes one wonder just how many floors and rooms there are in that place.
Ayush Basu: Uhm, a hundred and twenty four floors if i recall correctly, and the number of rooms i cannot fathom
Quite impressive Ayush!
Are the spots coming from your lens or your sensor?
Ayush Basu: Sadly, it is from the lens Richard.

The spots can easily be removed in photoshop. The portrait set-up is (in my opinion) the best way to show such a high building when taking it from as near as this. Where you almost have to lean backwards. Apart from the spots I believe you have done the building proud.
Ayush Basu: Yes, it is one of the rare instances where I have uploaded the portrait version. THank you Louis

I agree; landscape images show better here but to emphasise the height of an object, portrait is the right way. I like the colour of the building very much; looks freat against that sky.
Ayush Basu: Thank you very much Alan.
Yes I agree that portrait images lack impact on a computer screen. It is a great pity really because at one time I would automatically choose the best orientation, now I always try to make a picture work in landscape view first.
Ayush Basu: I think I am a little bit that way myself, John. Thank you for the comment and the visit.
well still a fine shot Ayush...this structure reminds me of the Shard here
Ayush Basu: Thank you for your generous comment Ronky
Wow, I'm actually interested to know their rubbish management from this tall building.
Ayush Basu: That's a good point. I think they must have something remarkable in place LC

The tallest building in the world. I admit I had to google it. I think this was a great trip to Dubai. Did you go for pleasure or work, or both a little bit.

Ayush Basu: Thank you for the info. Yes it was a fascinating visit, a land of extremes. I was meeting an old friend there, so it was a lot of pleasure grin
That's some PoV Ayush! smile
Ayush Basu: Thank you for the visit smile

Is this in KL? It looks incredibly tall!
Ayush Basu: This is in Dubai, Mike. And it sure is tall, almost got a crick in my neck to get this grin

It is an amazing building. And as the others have said the spots are easily removed.
