That's awesome!

About time Google Earth for Hong Kong was updated.

The things you learn from it too - for example, I never knew or noticed that the south side of Standard Chartered was also 'stepped'.

Wow all those photo's on this thread are so great. Like all made by artists. If you look at other threads it are all boring pics, and now and than maybe one real great one, but here every photo is incredible. Is it because of Hong Kong?

It's a very photogenic city.

Even when it's "not supposed to be" (e.g., in smog) - look at Skybean's second picture.

I'm loving the Gateway effect. I don't think it looks cheap as some say as a) the towers aren't twins and b) the gateway seems to be a "natural"/"accidental" result of the developement of the city, not some megalomanic masterplan. If I make any sense :P

Yes, you do make sense. And yes, the gateway effect is brilliant.

I love it - haven't heard anyone say it's cheap yet...?

I remember seeing comments like these in this thread. Not much but still, it made me thinking if perhaps it wasn't a valid argument as indeed many "gateway" projects of all kinds all over the world tend to end up looking cheap/megalomanic, but I came to conclusion that HK's gateway looks natural, thus good

I only have some concerns about ICC's cladding. I know it's still unfinished but as for now it looks a bit messy, esp the sections with black panels
