Emirates Palace - Abu Dhabi

The Emirates Palace in Abu Dhabi. Quite a symbol of Arab Opulence. Built at a cost of $ 3 Billion, the Palace occupies 850,000m² of floor space. Underground parking allows housing for 2,500 vehicles. Built as a Palace but now converted to a super luxury hotel. Wonder if I can ever make it to stay there...

This picture below is of the lobby area and if you look at it twice you will find it a bit surreal! You can see the elaborate ceiling and the reception counter on the same plane! Well actually, I did some 'photostitching', i.e., put together about 5 pictures to create it! I so wanted to capture the whole ambience out there!
Most digital cameras come with some or the other 'photostitching' software these days. Of course, you can use one of those wide angle or 'fish eye' lenses. But again they have their limitations too.
