@Luci203: What a beautiful picture of this stunning city. Thanks for posting it. Only being there beats this picture! Since I was fortunate enough to have visited Hong Kong, I can make the comparison!

Best photo from HK I've ever seen! I even made a wallpaper.
(crop, darker midtones and unsharpmask)


Can't wait to see the same quality photo after ICC is finished!

Yes, the concrete core is T/O at 419m. Now there will be 65m of hollow steel structure.

Cullinan (glass) = 270m.

Harbourside (big wide blue fat) = 256m.

The Arch (one with the hole) = 235m.

The other ones are between 210-261 (or something like that).
