It becomes even more amazing when you realise that most of the towers over 100 meters in the picture didn't even exist 10 years ago.

red dot = 10 years old or younger.

Agreed. It's so clear I can barely notice it too. Goes really well with this building

I love it! The City of London is the best example of how skyscrapers can give a unique new identity to a city, not like in other cities (or Canary Wharf skyline), where new skyscrapers make it look like that city could be anywhere else in the world. Not sure if I'm explaining it clearly XD.
