Early Morning at the Burj

Burj Khalifa - Dubai, UAE

I took this photo in the early morning hours as the sun reflected off of the Burj from the Souk al Bahar which is adjacent to the Burj Khalifa. It's a difficult spot to capture the entire building because it's very close, the Burj is so vast that you get too much distortion shooting upwards at this position. I decided to take a series of 9 vertical panoramic shots, which I then merged in PS. I converted the image to B&W in Lightroom, where I also performed some other curve and contrast adjustments. The camera settings were as follows:
Canon 5D Mark ii
Canon 24-70mm F2.8 @ 35mm
1/500th sec
ISO 100

Canon 5D Mark ii
35mm · f/16 · 1/500th · ISO 100
