I love the dark panels! It shows a defined "crown" (other than the really crown, which is really pretty also)

Those dark panels aren't caused by dirt or lack of dirt. Those are a different colour.

Well then ewww

They should have kept the sides uniform all the way to the top. Still love the tower over all though

This is the most beautiful image of New York City I've ever seen. Where was it taken from? I'd love to see this same view after 10 years of supertalls are added

Really? It's a nice vantage point but the faux hdr is awful.

It is very beautiful, isn't it?

We have a few buildings here in Philadelphia that style of architecture: Victorian "French Second Empire" with a Mansard roof. Our hotel Bellevue is an example, but our glorious City Hall - which took 30 years to build (1870 - 1900) is probably the finest example of that style in the country.

That is something that is so wonderful about NYC is the sheer panorama of different architectural styles right next to eachother.

When the tower is completed, I hope they will give this tower a wash job to make it pristine for it's grand opening. The more I see this tower near completion, the more I'm appreciating it. Great Tower!

Well, I hope you're right cause the different color makes the facade as a whole look kinda ugly

Great! How much does photoshop cost, and how does it even work? I'd LOVE to "dismantle" 1 WTC's east elevator right now.

And by the way, Kanto, thanks for giving me my 150th (and apparently my 149th) like!

I personally edit pics and photos with MS paint. It has only basic functions but it is free for everybody using Windows

Could YOU edit that crane out with that? I may want to use it, as soon as I find it.

You guys should check out paint.net, it's what I use. It's somewhere between basic(paint) and complex(photoshop)

http://www.getpaint.net/
All sorts of plugins can be downloaded from the forums that add new features.
