How exactly does this apocalypse come about: if it was nuclear, than all that would be where these cities are is a barren wasteland. And if it was some kind of epidemic, than how do you have the Burj Khalifa taken over by trees. IT'S DESERT! Plants wouldn't grow without human intervention.

I kinda like the Destruction part and the all of the chaos around but really here on Earth the ( Human world ) not look so Awesome -.-
This looks like the End of the World.. but looking in the real events around the globe
the Destruction is only the Beginning of Apocalypse.

The only good thing about the apocalypse is all the bird and plant life growth.

With all the nuclear failures and toxic runoff from a lack of maintenance on sewage pipes and toxic storage facilities, and trash being scattered by all kinds of currents and winds, no humans would be even worse at this point.
