Poor selection of photo definitely has some influence over the result. This picture doesn't do Menara Telekom the justice. Do you think Two IFC can get 76% of total votes if appropriate photo is selected for showing Menara Telekom?

here is the most typical photo showing Menara Telekom

^ It's not always easy to find a good image in the 330 x 330 pixel size. Obviously most images of supertall buildings are vertical images, but that doesn't make then suitable for square cropping. Your image suggestion would not turn out well in our case. Plus I doubt if we had used that image, the tower would have beaten Two IFC, really.

Also, this is not a photo contest, maybe not even a beauty contest. I must presume people have at least some knowledge of the towers they are voting on, and if not, there is a link above the image for people they can check out. But like in politics, if people vote for the wrong reasons or with no knowledge at all, then I can't help that. That's why we call this a popularity vote.

Wonderful! I've created a thread in Latinscrapers and other places I Mod linking them to this page so we can have a broader, global participation.

Great initiative! Congratulations.

Jin Mao is the most iconic building in China, just as Empire State Building is in USA. I think that the winner is going to be Burj Khalifa

Some mistakes of this tourment:
- pictures should be real and at the same distance from the buildings
- buildings from the same city shouldn't match untill 1/16 finals

In the first post by Jan it's clearly said "close to completion" India Tower is a nice project, but hard to call it's progress "close to completion"

I think Burj Khalifa should fall out of top 4, it is only tall, but imo, not pretty at all.

well, I really agree with your opinions. Burj Khalifa is almost sure that would be in top 4, but the height isn´t all, in a building is necessary something more like architecture, beauty, history, if it is an iconic building or not, and its use. Nevertheless, my favorites ones still being in Dubai and they´re Burj Al Arab, and, the one I talked about, Burj Khalifa.

absolutely. that's why the chrysler is one of my all time favourites. but believe it or not, 55 people voted for al hamra tower! i think they need a ticket to NYC asap, and see chrysler with their own eyes. if this doesn't help, well i would suggest to go to therapy.
