I'm sorry but I meant the final part of the Shard "spire"?

Really epic skyline shot of a grand capital metropolis! And that's not even including the other U/C towers in the city and the Canary Wharf cluster.

I think it just emphasises how "low rise" minded we are here in the uk. Those clouds don't even look halfway up the shard, yet there's only a couple of other buildings visible.

It doesn't really look like the renderings. Not a bad thing, but I'm just saying...it seems a lot duller. Maybe it'll look different once it's done, but 1WTC looks a lot sleeker now, when it's the other way around in the renderings.
