Thanks, I'm glad to hear that.


Last one, I promise. Looks like they were testing the lighting scheme on the top of the tower.

This thread has probaly the most complement words in it.

The tower could be better with a spire though.

IMO it looks a lot better without a spire, I think they made the right choice when they resisted the temptation to add a spire to beat Taipei 101 in height.

I spire on this tower would look extremely out of place and defeat its purpose altogether.

Nice editing mate, but shanghai centre put in with scale? Shanghai centre I think in a bit shorter than that.
