I'd agree with that.

I also hoped for a white 'flashing' light like 1CS (as was hinted in the promo video) but it doesn't like there'll be one.

I had hoped for a strip of lighting outlining the top of the shard to emphasize the sharp edges, but it's good enough for me.

It has a very classy feel to it that many other skyscrapers lack and it's kinda hard to miss on the London skyline

Thanks for those pictures, I like the one with the Chinook above it.

I also think the lighting of this building could have been more impressive than it is today.

These pictures are from 10-14 November, when I visited London:

The observation deck doesn't look very busy.

I thought maybe they could light up the exterior with colour changing lights, but that would be a little expensive.

Love the intricate metalwork and the sharp angles at the top!
