It is pretty nice at night; though, I think this is an HDR photo (or a bit saturated).

Reminds me a bit of the Pixar film WALL-E.

^ What an original point of view on the first one! It took me a while to figure out from where it's taken, but it has to be taken from this black/orange building, am I correct? If not, then really close to there.

That is a crazy shot man! It's taken at almost 12 kilometer from Shanghai Tower! Some towers around Jing'an, which are at a distance of 17 kilometer, are also clearly visible.

I would settle for two 300m twins.

Especially if they demolish several "red roofs" to build them

Thanks Forum for finally posting some current photos instead of the never ending shots from weeks or even months ago. I see progress is being made.

Lowai is usually good for at least weekly updates, I haven't seen his work on here lately.

Looks like it nearly 600m tall now.

To stand that high up and looking down over 100m to the SWFC is damn impressive!
