It is very rare you can see the entire skyline of Shanghai in one photo.

The 4th and 5th tallest tower and more than TEN other 200-300m towers are still missing though.

It's impossible to capture the entire skyline in one pic

It's not impossible, you just have to be far and high enough.

For me this point of view is still my favorite (~10km distance to Shanghai Tower):



Photo taken this January.

When zooming out a little other towers are visible as well, such as White Magnolia Plaza, Xujiahui Towers etc. Still some 200+ towers missing though...

Was this taken from cloud 9 shopping mall/renaissance hotel?

By the way I heard that there will be wind turbines generating electricity in the crown of ST. Does anybody know where they will be located?

That is a GREAT,, side by side comparison of the Big 4 with OPT,, but I'm starting to,, Well,, Be a very big fan of Little universe's "river shot" with the inclusion of WMP, that's just awesome
People think New York is dense,, Just look at this place, It's INCREDIBLE!!!!
Kix's entire city photo's (pretty damn Impressive)

^ It is dense, but it's not as dense as it might look like in this photo. Look at the photo below (January 2014), its the same position, just zoomed out a little:



As u can see a lot of lowrise residentials in between. Manhattan and for example HK Island are still denser city centers, but Shanghai is just more spread out over a wide area, that's what Shanghai makes so impressive.
