One of a series of photos that I took during the summer of the tallest building in the world, the Burj Khalifa in Dubai.
It is 2,722ft high (830m) and was designed by Skidmore Owings and Merrill.
As you know, I'm very interested in the idea of simplicity in photography - this is a deliberately minimalist architectural photo which pushes the concept about as far as I would ever want to take it. In fact, I think the only reason it works as a b&w image is that I managed to contrast the top, brighter part, of the building against a dark sky and vice-versa for the lower part of the building where the sky was brighter due to the city lights.
Like what you see here and are interested in photographic composition?.....the blog section of my website now has a complete set of 5 articles covering my personal approach to the subject: Ian Bramham Photography - Blog
