Really like the massing of this. At first I can see how you were displeased but the end result works extremely well. Wow the Burj is bright!

unbalanced, I disagree. I actually find the buildings on the left lead your eyes to the more well lit building (on the right). An excellant piece imo-great work.

Thank you so much for your feedback! :)

Actually, I really do agree. At first, the image DOES look unbalanced, but then the composition "comes to life". However, I did not really choose to make the composition look this way, as it is a panorama stitched from two images. The different distances of the subjects (looking down the road) created a significant geometric distortion which was hard to compensate while stitching. So the final outcome had this curvature and had to be cropped a little. First I was not too happy, but then I really liked it!

BTW: The well lit building to the right is Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world. See my gallery for more pics :)

I think the image in the end is a great piece, Burj Kalifa...one thing I will say for it, bright at night, something I can imagine would be an awesome sight in person. Thanks again for sharing this info with me Vert'
