Superb! That photo is out of this world! The colours, the light - everything is just about perfect! Would make a fantastic media/publicity shot for the city IMO. After removing the crane from atop the tower first though.

For a tower of that height, it looks kind of stubby.

since it has an elliptical cross section, its stubbiness changes with the angle that you look at it
from the west tower, it looks much much thinner.

It is depend on what angle you are talking. I agree with you at this angle, but I also agree with others who claim this one look thinner at different angle. No body wrong here. Isn't that great?

I'm sure there is a beacon on the top, but benKen got the moment when it was not flashing.

What an amazing shot! The only thing you can see poking out of a sea of grey/white is the tower itself...
