Dubai: Panoramas, Night pics and general photos

Hi all,

I just registered here, having checked this forum incognito for some time already I am very interested in learning stuff about skyscrapers and especially getting to know more about whats going on here in Dubai.

Here are some of pics I took so far driving around town trying to find good spots with nice atmospheres or great views of Dubai's multiple skylines.

Hope you guys enjoy

OMFG!

Awesome thread. First time going through it! Please post more pictures. You show some nice areas of Dubai and your photographs are astounding. So are your panoramas. Too many are good to list in my post.
