In stark contrast to the old colonial district of Shanghai known as 'the Bund', is this collection of futuristic skyscrapers in Pudong, which as recently as 1990 was just a collection of vegetable gardens & rice paddies. Taken from the 2nd level of the Oriental Pearl Tower, some 300 metres above street level. The Jinmao Tower at right is 88 stories high.

Hi Chris,
I like this POV that show us the tallness of todays structures. We can see that this is a busy town and the smog in the bacjkground is a real caracteristic of todays city life. I like also the natural frame created by the 2 skyscapers, Well done.

Nice POV and use of framing(with the buildings) resulting in a graphical image. I like how there are so many lines in many direction and all of them just add to teh picture. Very good work. TFS

Hi Chris,

Nice photo man, i like the vehicles on the highway looks like a miniature matchbox! Are u in the balcony when u took this shot?


Very good POV, and the way you cropped the top of the skyscrapers in the background makes it feel like the city goes forever. Excellent!

Good cut

So you finally got youtr helicopter pilot's licence. The extra long ladder not good enough any more.
Traffic density is quite low. I suppose I'm becoming used to Manila's gridlock!
Always an interesting viewpoint from up high looking down and into the distance and this is a good one.
Very Dubai-ish.

I am always surprised to see how big China is becoming! A real threat for the United States! Nice point of view! I find the picture maybe a little bit too green but it is a superb cityscape picture revealing the creativity and power of China! Well done! Michel

I see what you mean! Great photo Chris. It looks like there will always be a role for the window washers there.

Hello Chris...
Vertigo kicks in here!
Excellent capture, I won't even mention your POV! Well composed... Great lines... Very pleasing colours & details... Well done! And a brave man you are..!
Pablo -

Good composition taken from such a high place. The cars give scale to the buildings.

Cool, Chris.
I love these urban shots.
The vertical works very nice. Great composition.

an amazing POV Chris and the crop is good too

Excellent capture! It really hurts my stomach just looking at this. The point of view is good!

Great perspective, colors and composition!

Hi Chris,
Amazing sight. One really does not apperciate how far China has come in the last two decades. The only shame in all of this is that they seems to repeating al the mistakes of environment pollution that the West has been exposed to, without really learing from other's mistakes. Just look at the blue haze that coves the city, and they don't even have that many cars.

Thanks Chris, this is indeed an education - I wasn't aware that such skyscrapers existed in Shanghai - what an eye opener. Great POV and composition, gives a bit of a scary feeling combined with power. Nicely done,

an interesting view, I read about Shangai, both the old and the new, to see it is wonderful, thanx and well done, M, (*_*)

Cool shot, you should have caught a night shot with the traffic moving on the freeway below. I always see shots like this and it amazes me since I was always taught in school that China was technologically backwards. Very nice shot.

u're higher than those skydivers,great compo.so nice POv there and many ants on the roads:-)

Nice to see such an urban shot from you, Chris. I like that view from a very high PoV... reminds one how tiny we humans really are...
A pity the high PoV & wide-angle caused some lens distortion. I think you aligned the vertical with the Jinmao tower, but IMO you should have used one of the central buildings for aligning, as now the left side of the picture seems tilted ccw. Of course it is almost impossible to get all of the buildings straight...
Anyway, TFS.

Hi Chris,
What a magnificent view of the high-rises in Pudong, Shanghai. Was it taken in 2002? There is a new high-rise, Shanghai World Financial Center (101 floors) is under construction. It is located just next to Jinmao (the green block). It will be completed in 2008.

Love this shot..great POV - very Big City, nice colours

another different view of shanghai~~ interesting,and be fond of most of your fotos too!!!

Old China is disappearing fast. Too modern for me, I love the old.
