y'know, I have to eat some crow on my last comment and say that, now that it's not competing with tower_guy's crane, I'm warming up to the spire! I think a big part of of why it looked so thin at first, at least to me, was that it was competing with the crane next to it. Standing on its own, I actually think it works really well I DO wish it wasn't latched onto the side of the building and instead shot straight up from the sail, but all in all I think it's gonna end up pretty nice in its final form.

I'd rather look at the crane. Thanks for the link to tower guy's pictures!

nice pic. Just goes to show that even decentralised LA has a few man-made canyons.

LA is more dense than what people think. LA does, after all, have very tall buildings in Downtown that throw the scale out the window. Tallest west of Chicago.

* Love the pic btw.

Yeah, most Downtown LA skyline pics don't don't do a good job of showing its density.

True, but camera angle has much to do with our perception of these things. You can make any CBD look impressive with careful composition. And speaking of Chicago, I've seen angles on that city that make it look almost boring by using the western plains as backdrop.
