Lots of light polution, I know, but I quite like the atmosphere it creates with a 25 second shutter speed to blur the clouds.

Taken from the crescent of the Palm Jumeirah, looking towards the Burj Al Arab (3.5km away) and the Burj Khalifa (14km away) which was opened earlier this week.

Nice shot again Phil :)

@JHM: If, by visiting you mean staying at the hotel then be aware that they made it pretty sure that an average rich guy, even in his dream, don't even think about staying at this place :lol: Man, the rents are insanely high.. I am sure you'll enjoy your stay over there until they hand you the bill :wink:
A weeks stay at Burj ul Arab on one hand, and on the other, think about all those possibilities of having the best of camera gears you can buy :lol: Just kidding. But i am sure, it will be one hell of an experience.

O yeah I know about the ridiculous prices ha, its like £30,000 a night or something like that. So unless I get lucky tonight on the lotery I doubt I will ever be staying. But I think it will definately be worth a visit :-)

It's definitely one of those places that is better to look at than be in!

Gaudy is not the word - ridiculously over the top and untasteful on the inside, but nice to look at on the outside, especially at night...
