Now that is good, it doesn’t look real somehow. I’d love to know what lens was used.

Just imagine this view in a few years time!!

no, I think no matter how good the shard is, London bridge will always be the center piece from that angle.

I know its a way into the future at the moment, but I really hope on completion that the Shard is going to have a nice "Burj Kahlifa" style opening ceremony

See above for correct bridge

On that note. Seeing as there is a deficit, maybe now it the time to sell off another London Bridge (clearly enough people will make the same mistake again)

No, Leo's correct. It is lit up and has been since the Millennium.
