LED's are nice, you just can't go too crazy with the colors and changing patterns to keep it classy. The inside of my Mini Cooper lights up with LED's and you can pick wild colors, but I keep it a nice deep red.

Certainly, Guangzhou Tower when lit up with rainbow LED's is not classy, but it is very nice when more subtle choices are made.

So true. Those rainbow color schemes that you see sometimes are horrible. Something in between white and yellow/orange or some blueish tint often works best.

What would it be like to work in that crane ? just thinking about it makes me very uneasy. Feeling it move and sway esp. on a windy day. Hope he gets well payed. The Shard is looking great.
