That's stunning! With a panorama that big all the shit stuff fades into the good stuff. Absolutely brilliant.

Deleted as the image location seems to be problematic (reposted below).

That one is a cracker. Just a query what is the brown/red building on the horizon along the lines of Broad Street? Never noticed it much before.

Is it Five Ways Tower (empty as it's a Sick Building!)



Changed the image location as the original seems to have issues (for me anyway)

Do you mean Broadway Plaza (to the right of Auchinlech House) or Trident House (to the right Cumberland House)?

The top panos working fine although the last image link needs fixing to show the full image.

Probably cause he was Flogging Molly. It's a shame cause he is a good forumer. Next time he needs to be more discreet.

The first picture is begging for a future skyline render. Someone? With V Building, VTP 200, Snow Hill buildings, The British Land tower, Maritenau (however you spell it) Galleries, New Street Twin Towers, the Cube and the Beoruma (however you spell it) quarter. Will look stunning!

Another pano from last week.



Taken from the Palasades carpark roof, stitching goes a bit crap on the old JJB extension.
