^ That's why I love skyscrapers. If I wasn't scared of heights then they wouldn't seem nearly so exhilerating!

I love climbing mountains for the same reason. Fear is when you feel most alive.

i really like the square hole now, but i cant help thinking that it would look cool if you could somehow line up a shot to have one of the oriental pearls sphere bits fillingthe old circular hole perfectly.

It's hard to see from that angle, but are both cranes down now? I would expect one to still be up (I saw them dismantling the first one last week), but I can't see it in that picture. Does anyone know?

Wow from this angle the Lujiazui skyline is incredible, more compact and Jin Mao and SWFC don't stand out so much. There is still the feel of their real height on that photos, great!

The more I see this building, the more I like it. Also the setting in the ever growing and increasingly more and more impressive skylinely is fantastic to see. I am sure I will try to visit Shanghai in the (near) future!
