Wow! Honestly, I think Pudong itself looks much more impressive from the vantage points with the Oriental Pearl in the back and SWFC in the front. It looks much denser and really shows the dominance of SWFC (and soon to be Shanghai Tower). Just my two cents

Is the pollution in Shanghai as bad as some say it is?

I would say no.
It is now a lot better than a few years ago, since heavy industry moved out of the city. Of course there are still days with pretty bad air quality, it's still a really big city with a lot of cars.
BTW the weather in Shanghai can be really foggy, which is often misinterpreted as smog (especially from foreigners, who are literally expecting smog when they come to Shanghai/China).

My today's pictures. those taken far away were taken from Yu Yuan garden, then from the Bund. One is taken from the SWFC observation deck, it is too hard to take a good picture there.

Unbelievable. Seems like it is being built not by humans...

Imagine how of much glass this project will need. I mean there's the inner layer and the outer of the Tower. And it's over 600 meters tall!!!
