Got this while my wife and I were taking a walk through the Dubai Marina. These buildings are so bizarre to see from a distance. They're all really tall, and all unreasonably close together. I've taken so many bad pictures of this area, but I'm pretty happy with how this one turned out.

I really didn't expect this to score so high! Thanks for all the great votes and comments!
