Just because people vote for building A, why does everybody have to automatically make the assumption that they must "hate", or at least dislike, building B? I think all 4 buildings left are amazing, but I can only pick 2.

Just because I might pick the opposite one that you picked, doesn't make me "crazy". No matter which building wins, it should not be considered an "embarrassment" to the rest of them. There is no shame in making the Final 4 out of a tournament of 64.

I just wanted to mention that I think it is amazing that we now have enough supertalls to fill out a 64 building bracket. Nobody would have believed that a decade ago. If this tournament is really every 4 years (like the world cup) we may need an expansion to 128 for the next one!

Wow, very subjective and interesting final 4. A mixture of height and design.

Even though I voted for BK, one just can't deny Chrysler's beauty:

^ a given is that the format of the image we use for the one on one is a square 330 x 330 pix. Great photo's don't always come out good on that size. If people want to help, please find us images for that format, thanks.

I can do that for you. Are Flickr images okay? I mean the ones that are Creative Commons licensed.

If you were responding to my post, I was referring more towards some comparisons I saw a few pages ago, where some absolutely brilliant pics of the Burj were juxtaposed against blurry, overcast shots of Chrysler.

However, is there any way that you can increase the size of these squares for the finals? (or, as someone else brought up, maybe include 3-4 pics for each)
