so it is. Shame earthcam doesn't have a live feed anymore. I wonder if LAF2 is still in NYC, i'm sure he would take notice

He is trying to describe it metaphorically. I don't understand why everyone is now attacking him for his opinion. So he doesn't like the new complex. So what? Why should people get all roweled up about it? It's ridiculous. And I see someone said he sounds "insecure"? No offense, but when you all attack someone who has a different opinion than you, you make yourselves sound like a raging mob. It's absolutely unnecessary and immature.

It's the white FAA light. I was Downtown from 7 to 10 and that's all I saw. Beacon wasn't on.

This one compels us to foresee how the tower will look like after the windows get washed.

^ 2nd and 3rd shots almost gave me a heart attack! Just stunning on so many levels. Lower Manhattan alone is a 10/10, and that's only a 1/4 of the skyline...

Some unused footage (M1280d, 3WTC, 4WTC, 1WTC base panels). Sorry for the frame rate issues, I plan on remaking all my videos next week to sort it out. Here is a sneak peak into what I've been working on. the first three are my very first renderings, the last was a failed render from a week ago.

The reflections at 4WTC are very close to the photorealism, nice work

most of those 'photos' are renderings created before the tower was built. Not to mention, 1 WTC also "shines" like that, in fact most modern buildings clad in glass are capable of emulating such an effect. There's no need to praise the shard here, it's an amazing building. A world class skyscraper for a world class city. But this thread is for 1 WTC, and there's no need to derail it further because of somebody's opinion.

Hey kissingengland it looks nice and all but I believe 1WTC has more of a punch to it.

The majority of this page is filled with nonsense, and I believe there is a thread for all of that... Supertalls World Cup
