Vertical Expansion

Tonight’s Picture of the Day comes from the rising Chinese commercial hub, Shanghai, taken by photographer Toffiloff using  a Canon EOS 5D Mark II, the image photographs downtown Shanghai in a monochrome tone that delivers a feeling of comfort and calmness to a relitavely hyperactive city. It was snapped from the top of the World Financial Center (492.0 meters – The 4th tallest tower in the world) looking down at the rest of the Pudong peninsula including the Jin Mao Tower (421 meters – The 9th tallest tower in the world) and the Yangtze River. Fantastic shot!

    not downtown, not the yangtze—looking down on lujiazui (one of the financial districts) and the huangpu river.
