That's the mayor's office - City Hall, designed by Sir Norman Foster.

^I really like Istanbul's skyline, and it was my #3 pick, but what made me choose Warsaw instead is the lack of a landmark skyscraper in Istanbul. Warsaw however does, but this will change in around 5 years when the Diamonds will be completed, then everything will change. However the future skylines have other competition from London and Moscow too, but it's another matter.
in any case, when will we vote for the category?

yup, we had a discussion about this night pano some time ago... I for one, think it's photoshopped.. it looks misplaced and disproportionated when compared to La Sagrada Familia and the distant small skyscrapers at the left... some people claim its a photo done with a special lens, from really far away... I don't know too much about photography but they say some of these special lens do strange effects with the proportions...

I think it's just an exercise of copy & paste... this is just one of those postcards you'll find in Les Rambles for tourists.. like putting the Eiffel Tower next to the Défense Arche to have all the landmarks in just one pretty picture...
