chicago is AWESOME! The Trump Tower is really nice! But sadly, the Trump Tower in The Palm Island, Dubai was postponed I presume, becoz the cranes was removed..

luci203, your first picture is amazing. Trump looks great in that shot and definitely balances everything out. It makes the whole skyline have more continuity.
