I have to agree with this. I have no doubt that standing there the towers look overwhelming but in a flat 2d image it doesn't translate. Since there is nothing else in the shot it's missing that sense of scale. Nice shot otherwise.

Good balance to this photo, except the big logo. If that were not visible (I know this is impossible), that would have made this really nice.
