I wonder if it was someone's intention to create a landscape that looked like the future. These shots are really futuristic - love them!!

Those Dubai shots my look like the future but only from our perspective now. Look at all those illustrations from decades past about how the future would look and each 'future' already looks pretty dated and tacky.

.:1. SEOUL 서울, SOUTH KOREA 대한민국:.

I think they both look like something out of a sci-fi movie. I think Dubai is the closest city we have to looking like Coruscant, capital of the known galaxy in Star Wars.

Chicago>>>>>>NYC, IMO.

Chicago is the best looking, most artistically pleasing skyline in the world.

Lots of people think this and it is often ranked higher than the Manhattan skyline for that reason. I never did like that break in the Manhattan skyline. It's just hard for me to rank Chicago's skyline above New York's when it's twice as massive.

Kind of in a funny mood. My list is apt to change, especially with all the crazy construction going on all over the place. It could look totally different 6 months from now!

1. NYC
2. Guangzhou
3. Shanghai
4. Hong Kong
5. Chicago
6. Shenzhen
7. Chongqing
8. Dubai
9. Tokyo
10. KL
11. Moscow
12. Singapore
13. Toronto
14. Melbourne

Eh that's it, beyond that I'm just throwing darts. As more of the developing skylines come into their own, I'll come back to reassess.

He only has 179 posts. Chances are he's not too familiar with skylines beyond the Far East and other than cities that get a lot of press where he lives. He's got London in there. That's a big red flag right off the bat.

Because there are dozens of better skylines in the world better than London. If London is included here then Hanoi, Dhaka, Lagos etc. skyline should be added as well, which would derail this thread.

Best is still what anybody wants it to be as far out as it may be.

As others have stated, one can choose whatever skyline they want but London's skyline is puny by global standards. It's barely a top 30. If he like it, he likes it. He could put Geneva in his top 10 if he wanted to.
