Even though it still looks like a bottlecap remover, it's still quite nice.

This one portrays the Nanjing Xi Lu / People's Square / Huangpu / Lujiazui skylines pretty well. Not even this view is representable for the Shanghai skyline madness though. Photos simply don't do it justice.

this has to be the best picture of all time or at least of buildings or at very least of the tower itself.

What better way to appreciate the height of a building. The bottom half is in darkness and the top still enjoys some natural light. It’s like the tower combines the night and the day into one.
