Ribarca, that pano is amazing. I keep coming back to this thread for it's stunning imagery as I'm sure many others do.

I've never been to asia, let alone HK, here's to hoping I will visit this place soon.

The top goes too narrow i agree. I disgree with you about the bottum tho

The tower does not narrow at the base...the base flares out a bit actually. The facade LOOKS like it narrows at first glance. I love the top narrowing though, gives the tower dimension.

SWEET pano Ribarca!!

It won't look narrow when they finish cladding the parapet.

As you can see, the Bank of China is right next to it (left side).
It must be somewhere at Queens Road.

Probably Admiralty Centre, judging from the view.
