Always assumed the stuff on the bottom right was a watermark of the photographer, since nobody does any crediting when posting photos that have them.

Watermark at the bottom right seems to be from gaoloumi, the Chinese forum.

In that case BarbaricManchurian would have posted hundreds of uncredited photos.

The cladding is really tricky. Colors change according to the viewing angle and the lighting conditions.

I think the glass is very slightly bronze-tinted but not enough to cancel out the sky's reflection in normal light.

SHENZHEN | Ping An Finance Center | 660m | 2165ft | 115 fl | U/C

Can you actually see HK from the top floor of this building, or will they (for ex. at the victoria peak) see at least the spire of pingan ??

When I flew out of Hong Kong I was shocked by how close Shenzhen is to HK. Its really one continuous city.

Judging by some Google Earth imagery hills on the Northern part of HK are actually the best spots to see SZ's skyline.

I can see this building from many parts of the NW New Territories.
