    Cool What It Really Looks Like Atop the World’s Tallest Building

    What It Really Looks Like Atop the World’s Tallest Building

    In January, Dubai photographer Gerald Donovan showed us what the earth looks like from the pinnacle of the world’s tallest building, thanks to a 360 degree panorama that was ‘shopped to remove the Burj Khalifa itself. But today, Donovan released the original, undoctored image—and it’s even better than the original.

    The reason Donovan chose to doctor the original panorama, you see, was because the pinnacle of the Burj is home to dozens of sensors and antennae, which block the view of the ground. For example, there’s a lightning conductor, multiple aircraft beacons, cameras, and dozens of other sensors. There were also people blocking the view—like the head of another photographer,Joseph Hutson.

    “So I then manually shot around these objects, plus a set of images looking vertically down around the pinnacle,” Donovan explains. He ultimately stitched together 48 individual photographs, creating a haunting panorama that was completely free of evidence of the Burj itself, except for its spindle-like shadow. In this image, though, we get to see the guts of what’s going on atop the pinnacle—which is far more interesting. [Gerald Donovan]

    First capture looks like very real it might be taken with a fisheye lens for a 180* and 360* panorama letter on some Photoshop tricks to make that birds eye view.

    Tom cruise will never risk his life in such way it is for those who loves him so much that can scare all of those girls, surely it can not be real. Hollywood stunt man are well known for creativity they can make any situation look alike really happening infront of us.

    Actually Tom Cruise does his own stunts just like Jackie Chan (maybe not anymore because of age). And I believe MI: Ghost Protocol had a scene with the Burj Khalifa, so that picture could've easily been taken at that time.

    Have you seen MI:Ghost Protocol .. The part where Cruise climbed The Burj Khalifa .. Tom Cruise actually did that scene himself .. No stunts or CGIs were used .. so If i Were him I wouldnt want to miss the top view
