Is Trump Tower in Chicago is Donald Trump's tallest building right?

Indeed. And it's occupation is going very fast too. I like this building, let's wait for more supertalls in this quality for Chicago!

Awesome panoramas !!! The skyline have changed positively with the addition of the Trump tower... And looks very elegant and not as agressive as John hanckok or Sears Tower designs and colours.

Amazing shot. A clear proof of the curvature of earth. Any idea from how far was this taken?

I believe it was taken on the other side of Lake Michigan. So that's probably about 75 miles. 120 kilometers away.

That is a great shot of the skyline, nice sky and water and the silhouette effect is really nice. As for the distance, the flickr description of another version of this shot says it was taken from Indiana Dunes National Shoreline, which would put it closer to 37mi/60km. If you're observing from near lake level, the top of the Sears masts would dip under the horizon around 52mi/84km out. I'm guessing this shot was helped by the extra elevation of the dunes.
