[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A fish-eye view from the world's tallest building - the Burj Khalifa.

A 10.5mm fish-eye lens was used and I just held the camera out over the railings and fired away... Had a to get a decent photo somewhere in there ;-)

Hi David,
An incredible view with a distinctive depth and details. There is actually so much to absorb in this presentation, another excellent image.

Hello David,
Pity you don't say what the elevation is but I will look it up. This is a fantastic image with the fish-eye lens serving the purpose very well. Amazing how petroleum transformed the face of the Earth. Very well done indeed.

  • Great

Great shot David,
fish eye works well, I like the bend in the shadow
When I was up there couldn't see that much - real hazy day

Modesty yours, David, you've adopted in this case a very unique and original way of seeing the world.
Great post.


Its nice view and we can feel the shape of our earth. Well done.


Hello David,
I must admit that I get a touch of vertigo just looking...
The distortion caused by the fish eye lens adds a nice touch to this pin sharp image.
Cheers Les.

Nice Image, good clarity and view.

Hi David, Lovely and beautiful fish eye view of the place. The lens definitely gives a nice effect to the place. Wonderful details and with great sharpness. Thank for sharing
