I will work at lining up the pictures in photoshop and doing a bit of color correction to make them match as much as possible, as they come in so it's not a huge job at the end. Just keep them coming, Joobn, as close as possible to being snapped from the same angle every time! If you take it a similar times of day also that will make color matching easier. So far I have lined up the first two and it wasn't too difficult. Hopefully we won't have too many days cut out by bad weather

That's why the camera needs to be locked down on a tripod and never moved. Or via a webcam set to take daily shots.

Of course either of those would be great. But since neither of them seem to be available, "being careful" is the next best thing.

I think the cladding has been absurdly slow. At this pace, it would take 2-3 years to clad the whole building. Perhaps there is a learning curve involved at first.

Possibly. I haven't hear anything about him lately. He is seen like discret just for now. Anyway let's get back to the subject.

At beginning, it was slow. I just noticed that cladding starting to speed up lately. We will see how this cladding process for next few days from now.

Give it two weeks, and we'll be seeing piles on each day. Now that it has started to pick up, It's gonna zip on.

I hope.

That can all be easily fixed in Photoshop. And I wouldn't take pics every day. The tower only grows 1 floors every 3 days at minimum, so you'll have a bunch of pics which are the same.
