This is a shot of one of the Emirates Towers, which is apparently "one of the top three most luxurious hotels in the world". The building on the left is the DIFC, of which I'll be posting quite a few more easily recognisable shots over the next week or so.

As for the blurring – before somebody starts complaining about Photoshop – it's entirely natural, honest :-)
