i think nothern lotus meant the lowrises, the blue/red 5 stories building, however i every building in that photo other than swfc and jinmao (and bank of china) should be bombed...

kix111....

3rd pics is amazing. it's brilliant what black&white (well, sepia here) can do.

4th pic is pretty cool. the ISO setting on the camera is unfortunately a bit high so it is a grainy photo but the the shot is well conceived.

The SWFC Tower was designed to be too close to the Jinmao Building, we cannot tell one from the other in many different perspectives! It was a urban design disaster! The Pudong skyline is one of the last things i would like to see in Shanghai.
If there is a skyline well represents Shanghai, i guess that would be the west nanjing road district.

what do you mean by "The Pudong skyline is one of the last things i would like to see in Shanghai" are you saying shanghai is hopeless?....T^T

you guys havent seen the pudong masterplan, its 3 supertalls (jinmao, swfc, shanghai center) in a cluster, surrounded by dozens of 200+ in a circle...looks very very good.

Skymyhusband,

If you don't want to post such a large photo (I'm guessing it's slowing down people's browsers as well), you can click "All Sizes" and then choose Medium or Large size.

Medium,

Large (probably better for this pic),
