63 Building



63 Building(height: 249m) used to be the highest building in Seoul until it had to give its first rank to Tower Palace lll with 264m of height. Besides the space for offices, this building also has an observatory-63 Golden Tower, an aquarium-63 Sea World, and I Max Theater with a screen of 24x20 m. I haven't discovered more about 63 Building since my first and last visit in 1988.

I like this photo a lot. The building is similar to Boston's Hancock Tower, built in 1976, 241 m tall, but your Golden Tower is a lot more interesting. An IMAX teather and an aquarium inside? That's nice.

Nice lighting in your photo. Also, a very dramatic design on the building.

That is one tall building! How many floors are there? If you get a chance to take photos from the top, that would be spectacular!

Oh wow! Great refection of the sun on its facade, with the beginning of a pink cloud just above it. You chose the perfect moment to snap this one. And, you got a little slice of moon. Great shot!

Dick, Eliane - I was lucky to capture the moon right before the sun was going to sleep. Thanks a lot for your words.
