Can someone explain to me how to post pictures because I have some great shots of this building. Cause when I click the image insert button some URL thing pops up. I would be greatly appreciated if someone could help me.

Too bad it still looks like a concrete poo stick from far away.

SWFC looking amazing. I love it.
If you ask me Jin Mao looks like an evil building that a villain would live in or sum evil master mime. It's very scary looking.

There's also the 300+ Kerry Center currently under construction, and Nanjing Rd 1788 which is about to start. Probably a few more that I'm forgetting as well.

I really love the SWFC and the Jin Mao. But like I said before I wish they were further apart so we can appriciate then both from the skyline. In some shots they take away from eachother.

The Empire State and Chrysler of China

When I look at this pic,it reminds me of the Chrysler with the Empire State in the background in some images I have seen,these NY landmarks are my two favorite buildings.,Though shaped differently from the two giants of Shanghai of which a sense dwarf their New York cousins. Who would have thought?

The highest level of humanity!!!

Humanity reaches new altitudes and writes history. That cannot put you simply into words. Surprisingly, Surprisingly, Surprisingly...

And thanks to all the great forummers that added photographs into the thread. They made my live!
