The new "San Paolo" skyscraper in Turin - from the Cappuccini Sanctuary, with the Alps (and the beautiful peak of the Rocciamelone) in the background

Per piacere, non cambiare nulla a Torino perché non ci sono stato ancora =) Niente skycraper per me ^__^

Paulo, il grattacielo e' bello nel suo genere -- e le citta' devono cambiare, evolversi -- ogni secolo ha lasciato un segno importante nello skyline di Torino. Senza questa capacita' di cambiare non avremmo nemmeno la Mole...

(quando vieni in Italia, vieni a Torino a trovarci!)

Wonderful picture, not loving the composition but sometimes you have no choice.

Just to learn: what is wrong with the composition?

Does the height of the building suit the setting? Perhaps not :-/

@helen: I see what you mean -- but in fact I like the fact that the new skyscraper is somewhat out of scale compared with a mostly horizontal city as Turin.

you have such a stunning mountain backdrop - it seems such a shame to block the beautiful view

Your title says the picture is about the skyscraper.

But your composition seems more towards either the dome of that basilica or else the Rocciamelone.

Personally, my feeling is that the skyscraper is the least interesting thing in the picture.

But I don't think you had much choice in terms of the view that was available - and so my earlier comment.

I don't think composition is ever right or wrong, mostly a matter of personal taste.

I'm not particularly fond of skyscrapers but I do think the photo is more interesting with it in it! (Not that the mountains and the city would be not more beautiful without it - but it's the contrast.)
