Well,my last two pictures from the observation deck of Burj Khalifa were quite "demanding":)for all those who suffer vertigo,so this time I´ve decided to present you a view looking up.
The observation deck is located on 452m,so it´s still almost 400m up.Actually a good option if someone´s feel dizzy looking down:)

You're posting too fast my friend, I haven't even gotten around to your previous picture yet...slow down. :) So, you're exchanging our fear of heights for a broken neck, trying to look at this steep grade? lol
O.K., this right here goes to prove what I've mentioned before...you have an intuition and sense to compose a subject in a way that most wouldn't think. First time seeing the Burj Khalifa presented in this manner for me, and I absolutely love it! The big curve of the base was a surprise element, and one that works well to bolster this sharp view. I bet this is going to make Craig happy to see. :)
It's so tall we can't even see the top from this perspective. Crazy cool. The black & white format is wisely chosen for this application, the emphasis on contrast with each window is superb. Top notch shot all the ay around. Excellent!
Enjoy the new day. Take it easy. looking forward to many more....
Cheers from the sun filled skies of Az.,

a nice graphical one is here. Presented superbly with fine depth and sharpness. I like your interesting POV too. Nice shot. Tfs.

Its the lines and patterns of the building here that create the structure of the shot more than the height in some ways.
It's so hard to see the top of this thing!
Unusual treatment too - is that infra red or a negative look?

conoscendo il tuo amore per il bianco e nero mi sembrava strano che non avessi ancora proposto una versione monocromatica di questa grande struttura nota in tutto il mondo.
Con questa tua ultima foto hai esaudito la mia curiosità ed hai fatto la giusta proposta per quello che rimane una delle opere piu famose di questo secolo.
Ottima nitidezza, dettagli minuti e impeccabili e POV fantastico garantiscono un risultato eccellente.
Ciao e buona giornata

Absolutely stunning upwards the 400m+ high tower, Krzysztof, and right decision to show on B&W format.
Superbn clear shot, good sense of height, fine photojob done.
ourania (45344) 2014-04-09 8:54
you created a tremendous perspective in this rather tight frame, it captivates immediately the viewer's glance and makes them wonder forever about the height of the building and whether it's the top where this vertiginous travel ends:) You inserted an elegant base in the frame that anchors and balances your composition. I think that the dark tones are a little too homogeneous but I enjoy very much the luminous grid darting into the sky. Fine, creative work, congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely evening,

great the B/W scene with the chosen POV to makes the image so interesting and superb.I like the created texture,the light management, as the quality of the image.Well done my friend.

a graphically pleasing upwards shot this and presented so effectively in monochrome. I love the tones and lines here but is the enticing symmetry and perspectives that make it so compelling and irresistible. A masterpiece!

You chose a modern angle for these picture.
A pity in black and white, but this is the choice of the photographer.
A lot perspective and depth picture with the modern building as subject.
Excellent captured, nice presentation too.
Good contrast picture too.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,

So the observation deck offers view to both up and down! Very efficient dynamic angle and well done contrasty B&W conversion.
SnapRJW (31629) 2014-04-13 0:48
Hello Krzysztof - I really like the way you have converted this. Smooth tones and good contrasts the lines of the building are beautifully clean and clear. Nicely seen and a good choice for B&W conversion.
macjake (67706) 2014-04-15 1:26
truth is, you can actually get quite disoriented from looking straight UP too!
i know i have in the past.
this is another cool shot. reminds me of the photos you can get in Las Vegas.
love the white's against the greys and blacks. it creates such an effective contrast.
very cool indeed, and the positioning on the top is perfect. well done
mesutilgim (95244) 2014-04-19 12:35
Very nice b&w architectorial capture with perfect grapism.
TFS and have a happy Eastern !
delpeoples (58026) 2014-04-25 6:41
I love your B&Ws and this one is a cracker. I like the slightly skewed POV, which enhances the POV. The excellent contrast, where the white tones are so luminous and of course the impressive geometries and graphism. Excellent work, thanks for sharing.
npecanhuk (75422) 2014-05-01 14:36
Now from down below! That's a good one too and I really like it!
Black & white, exposure, sharpness, chosen pov and composition are all excellent!
TFS - congrats,
Cricri (119395) 2014-05-04 10:39
Excellent le contre plonger, le choix du POV, le contraste du N/B, une qualité d'image et une présentation vraiment magnifique
Mics (958) 2014-05-09 2:21
Fantastic composition in a near abstract form. I like the treatment in black and white, it has more drama. Lovely!
Noel_Byrne (31114) 2014-05-11 2:57
The building that never ends! This is the first time I have ever seen it in black and white and it looks very cool, nicely considered to present it this way. This medium allows the viewer to focus on the lines and shape of the building really well. I truly hope to visit this place someday.

A fabulous b&w shot of this impressive building. My city is surrounded by seven mountains, and this building is higher than all! A well composed architecture image. Excellent sharpness and a fine presentation. Great work! Thanks.
Enjoy your Sunday.
