Those photos don't make a whole lot of sense and are nowhere near the real impression the London skyline leaves. Anyway, thanks for sharing.

hey jetzt seid mal nicht allzu arschig , die rolle möchte ich für mich selbst gerne beanspruchen falls möglich, sucht euch was anderes, gibt ja noch; nett, hilfsbereit, gruppenzwängler, jasager und so weiter, also bitte


ansonsten, das bild wurde nicht wirklich so hardcore photogeshopped, er hatte nur den verschluss etwas länger an der spiegelreflex offen, schwer zu erklären so auf die schnell muss nämlich dringend pinkeln, auf alle fälle wurde da vielleicht ausser verbesserung der bildfarben und nachschärfen nichts ersichtliches gemacht und ich able to distinguish such a, oh eureka! my english is back again, cool beans.

That's Heron Tower which is under construction. When complete, it will be 246m to spire. This is its construction thread: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=413356

What about the Shard and Bishopsgate Tower, btw? Those were some of my favourite future European highrises. Ja.

The Shard is under construction - the steelwork is above ground level. It will be externally complete in 2011, and fully complete in May 2012: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=407549

Bishopsgate Tower is also Under Construction - still doing groundworks. It will top out in 2012 and be fully complete in 2013: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=375557

And the following will go u/c (in 2012), the location: that first building on the right.
