The media say that this is the most expensive and exclusive hotel in the world, I don't know it, because I didn't overnight there, ;-) but I can say that the building is impressive. It is in Dubai, over the sea in the Jumeirah beach.

Another wonderful night shot. I like how you included the trees in the frame...adds nice depth to the photo itself. Colors are excellent. Well done!

A wonderful night shot of an interesting object...Nice framing and colors...

Nice shot! I might be tempted to increase the contrast a little, and nudge it slightly clockwise - since I feel the sky's a bit pale, and the tower looks like it's leaning slightly to the left. Finally a little more sharpening may be useful. Great image :-D

It´s great that some country is unconventional and rich enough to build hotels like this. And it´s great that someone takes shot like this of it...

This is absolutely great!! I know how difficult it is to take night shots with a digital camera. This is tops.!!

Nice exposure and great colors, however the overall picture is a bit too dark in my humble opinion, I think you should have tried to shoot a bit earlier in the evening, when the sky is dark blue

L'hôtel à la forme d'une voile de bateau typique à cette région.
cette image de nuit est incontestablement belle au niveau exposition et composition.
The hotel has the shape of a typical sail boat to this area. This night picture is incontestablement beautiful on the level exposure and composition and point of view structures.

Very lovely night shot. I think this subject deserves its centered composition. Very nice! I'll have to save my pennies and stay there sometime!

This is a nice shot. I've heard Burj al Arab is the only world's hotel of 7*, can this be truth? Anyway this is one of the most exclusive buildings.
