While in Dubia for a professional trip, I found that looking up to the Burj Khalifa didn't really convey it's true height. It was not until you moved further away that you could really appreciate the 828m while comparing it to the surrounding buildings. Having a panoramic view helped to put everything in perspective.
Not the best of shots, but sadly I didn't find the time to walk around and wait for the good light. So, A shadow outline panorama against the light is all I could present. This was actually taken from a car on the freeway in a jiffy which explains the not so obvious F-stop and speed selection...

Nice skyline. The picture could be little better.

Considering the poor light, you were able to get a decent shot. As a matter of fact, the hells in the foreground are sharp, making the skyline dreamy and other worldly in contrast. And you are right, the relative heights of the building point out how astonishingly high the Bourj Khalifa actually rises, equivalent to a 250 story building.
Warm regards from the United States,

Hello Patrick. High, higher, highest. So many third world countries develop fantastic. So we marvel at this delusion of endless high. Well observed and presented. Rgds, Wolfgang.
