A 180° Panorama of Business Bay, as seen from Sheikh Zayed Road. To the far left you can see Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world.

I stitched this Panorama from 8 separate pictures at 14mm focal length each. The curvature is unavoidable due to the fact that I had to point the camera upwards in order to fully include all buildings. However, I feel it actually adds up to the atmosphere of this 180° shot and the clouds complement the effect of the curvature.

I agree that the curve only adds to the photo! The only downside is that the foreground is entirely dirt, but I wonder if there is any better place to set up a tripod in the city. It's always worth a scouting trip! Great job with the exposure.

You're right, but Business Bay is still just a huge construction site. Nice greenery etc. will only come after everything else is completed.

Thanks anyway :)
