Is there 2 stages of cladding? in the last picture posted by fatshe above, the highest cladding belt seem to have another layer of glass outside each floor before putting on an actual cladding panel.

I some of those pics above aren't photoshoped, would be so amazing if they were true colours.

Only the one with the red bright sky is most probably (almost certainly) photoshopped for false colours. The rest are all either normal photographs or taken using HDR photography.*

This question gets asked (by you?) every time, and the answer is always the same. Please pay attention this time. Trust me, the sky is legit. You should come visit and have a look...

*Please have a look:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/High_dynamic_range_imaging

It's a legit form of digital photography, but is susceptible to variations or extremes as it is 'post-snap' processed. If you capture it without looking for that 'animation' effect, it can actually photograph a picture or scene far more realistically than a simple 'snap shot' as it captures variations in highlights and shadows at different exposures and then combines them. However, some go overboard with it, perhaps for a certain (usually a 'comic' effect) effect that they like.

Generally speaking, in that set above, no picture has gone extremely overboard.

So chaotic below, yet so serene and green up here.
