it's a shame. Looking at it, now I'd be happy if they tear it down and convert the space to a grass park.

Perhaps they should put some pink paint over it?

Hey, i'm going to Bejing within a few months. Will I be able to get the same picture? Is the area from where you took the photo open for public?

you can walk around CCTV and TVCC plot (though the plot it self is closed since CCTV is still U/C), and with a little zoom (10x+) on your camera you will get the same pictures.

walk around ??? what are u talking about ? your picture (very nice by the way) has obviously been taken from a tall belvedere or some elevated viewpoint, so i don't see how u could get such a picture by simply ''walking around the building''...no offense.

actually all the pics are taken from street level as i walked around the site. I guess its because im using a lot of zoom making it look like i've been up in some nabour building taking the pictures!

To convince you, here is my walkmap of that little trip around the site, and again, i didn't even walk up a meter anywhere to take any of the pictures of TVCC!

hey it's still hard to imagine how this pix down could have been taken fron street level..but i trust u.

I am just really impressed

i have a zoom 10x camera and i know i cannot achieve such performance !

could a specialist in camera explain how such point of view is possible, up close to such a massive building, just using a zoom....first of all using zoom 10X means that u are far from the building. Then if u are far (and unless u are on a nearby hill) , normally u may not see a pix that way , with the top of 100 meters + buildings appearing in foreground...

really intriguing

remember i am talking about my TVCC building pictures which is what Atmosphere asked about (if i am right). The CCTV picture ( http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y16...0239smallX.jpg ) is taken from the YinTai Centre Skybar two weeks after i took the tour around the site and photographed TVCC.

OK infact u are mistaken, Atmosphere was asking about that YinTai Centre Skybar picture if you read carefully

ok that's why i was not getting it...

that skybar is it open to public, how much is the entrance and is there a long queue to get in ?

In a Dutch tv show the architect Rem Koolhaas said they would restore the TVCC building.

Its free, you enter it through the Hyatt hotel. There are actually three floors on top with different restaurants, but only the first floor is open to public as far as i know since i was stopped from walking up to the floor above. I recommend it alot since it gives you the best view of Beijing CBD.
