Awesome close-up shots...they give a better idea of the sheer size of those skyscrapers.

Please post lower-res pictures. I have medium-strength DSL and it takes way too long to load. You provide a link to Flickr... so... why do I have to sit here and wait for 40 large pictures to come though the pipe? If I want to see higher res images, I can go to Flickr, right? And if you are posting them at near full-rez here, why would I then go to Flickr? Where's the logic?

For now I have it between Hong Kong and New York City as the skyscraper capital. Chicago gets bronze even when factoring the Spire for Chi. and the new WTC in NYC. By the time Dubai finishes with it's constructionfest with Al Burj, they will rule the planet.
