I took a few photos yesterday from Parliament Hill and Alexandra Palace. It was a beautiful day and many people were talking about the Shard.

I've been following this for seven years and now that it's here i have to admit that I'm slightly underwhealmed by this building, it looks good from certain angles and in a certain form of daylight but it doesn't look like the tower i was promised in the renders and no amount of window cleaning will change that. 7/10 i recon, gherkin is miles ahead of this.

Have to disagree. In certain renders it looks pretty much exactly like it does in real life, which is impressive considering most renders of buildings I've seen aren't that actuate, especially in colour and light.

And the window cleaning makes a pretty big difference tbh.

It looks gorgeous! Can't wait to go to London in a few months to see it in the flesh.

Thanks. It really looks beautiful. We need someone with better quality telephoto lens to take some shots from these locations.

I have to say the Spire really has made this building. Till now it has been 'ok' to 'good', the top has just made it 'world class'. Those night skyline pics just took my breath away.
