Those are both beautiful images. They are the best skyline pics from Shanghai that I've seen in ages.

i must say i really like the design of this building..it has just the right proportion,it isn't too skinny but also isn't too fat,and the "hole" makes it even more interesting,IMO one of the best looking skyscrapers built in the last 10 years

That sort of comment was only acceptable 3-4 years ago!

Nothing positive to write in your SWFC review?

The round hole will look better from your view if you stand on the observation deck itself, but the square hole looks more ok with the overall shape, imho.
