Burj Dubai will be opened on January 4 to coincide with the fourth anniversary of the accession to power by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai. To capture the whole structure a 2.3 gigapixel photo ( see it here ) was needed.

The whole picture was composed of 381 images taken with a Canon 5D Mk II with a 400mm lens by bristolg. He created a video zooming in and out of his image in Photoshop and you can see it below. It’s fascinating to see such an amazing structure in this way.
