Pic(k) of the week 19: Burj Khalifa from The Palace Hotel, Dubai
Photographing the worlds tallest building, the 829m Burj Khalifa in Dubai, can be a bit of a challenge... Lets call it the ultimate test for the new Fujifilm XF 10-24mm f4 R OIS lens!
Doing so from the entrance of "The Palace Downtown hotel" with its water features in the foreground, makes for an interesting perspective.
