This picture was taken inside JIN MAO Tower, in Shangai, which is the biggest building in China. Of course we should not count with Taiwan's "Teipei 101" tower (the biggest in the world).
Back to Jin Mao Tower, it was built in 1999, has 88 floors and 420,5 meters high.
The picture was taken from the "observatory", in the top level, the base for a marvellous view over Pudong district and the river.
The building is occupied by offices (the first 50 floors) and by a hotel, from there until the sky! In this picture, we can see the hotel bar in the hotel atrium (the tallest hotel atrium in the world with 157 meters high).
I'm posting this picture here after seing another similar picture posted in TE. It reminded me the extraordinary experience I had.

Very nice graphic with a lot of depth and clarity. The noise actually enhances the photo. latiff

Hi Pedro, what an astonishing shot. It really captures the fantastic architecture of the building & the POV really give a great feeling of height. Regards, Roberto

Well done Pedro!

What an amazing view!
I love your "diagonal" composition. It is also sharp and well exposed. It might be a bit noisy, though (try neatimage.com)

Great shot. Wonderful composition with good light and colours. TFS,

this is a very interesting atrium. It's not good for people who are afraid of heights. Good composition.

Excellent POV and good graphic composition, Pedro. This makes you feel as if you were hanging 10 feet out over the balcony to take this shot - not the place to be if you suffer from vertigo! Cheers . . . David

incredible perspective! This is a beautiful picture...lines and lights of this shot made a great composition, very well done
etlerl (601) 2007-03-29 4:48
It is a stunning perspective. I also like the asymmetry of the compositions. Deep dof leads the eye down to the bottom. Very interesting architecture.

Very impressive photo. wonderful composition that makes it an illusion.

fantastic view.... like inside a futuristic star cruiser. great photo!

What an amazing building Pedro. At first I thought you were looking upwards but then realised it was the other way. Makes you feel a bit dizzy. Honestly, I hate heights. I get vertigo walking on a shag pile carpet;) Very good.

Apenas grande, uma verdadeira obra de arte, parabéns!
