Yes, those shots have a far better framing of the city environment. Could be sharper, but otherwise really cool.

It doesn't look as "fat" from a distance, might have been barrel distortion. What an elegant structure, i really like it.

The tower can look 'fatter' and 'slimmer' from different angle you look at it from because the bird eye view of the tower is not a perfect circle but an oval.

Well... in plan it's more a triangle with the points rounded off and the flat sides slightly curved. The slimmer views are when you look at one of it's 'points'

The cladding is easily the most beautiful I have ever seen on a skyscraper so far, let's wait for the technical floors.
