Skyscrapers 摩天大廈 2009 - The World's Tallest Buildings 世界最高的大樓

Cramped into 10 minutes, i present you an update of my Skyscraper video. A lot has changed in the skyscraper world since April. New stats, new construction photos, and a recession, delaying several projects.

I put quite a bit of effort into eliminating the moire patterns from the 2008 video, the overall image quality greatly improved. However, due to the larger format of my composition (960x720), i couldn't always take the "best" photos, since many come in very small resolution.

If i ever make an update, it'll have to be a two-part video, unless YouTube changes their policies. So this better stay accurate for a very long time :P

I didn't attempt to include Nakheel Tower and the various Korean supertall projects, as their construction is unpredictably far in the future (~2020), and i didn't have any room left anyway, hah.

I didn't have room for the credits this time, so here they are:
