Wow. Thanks for the update joobn! You have to get pretty far to get the whole building in the shot. I can imagine how far away from the BD one has to be to get it in fully.

Joobn, I meant that to fit the tall tower in a photo, u have to get pretty far Thanks anyway for the info about the situation of ur home. It seems like u lived in a skyscraper (those, which go near the big road there). Is it true?

Those pictures are amazing. Thank You Tom Green.
