Favorite Skyline Picture of Your City

Each person gets one photo, so make it count.

Probably this one (of Richmond, VA), because of the water and trees:

Always liked this one...mainly because I know the place it was taken from and it's a pretty sunset:

I do like this one of Atlanta....have had many great times in this city. We used to go on that CNN show "Talk Back Live," every time we visited. That was fun. Piedmont Park is a favorite place of mine to totally chill when I'm there, as well.

Here's mine of Richmond


The tops of Riverfront Plaza aren't lit because there were falcons nesting there all summer. Would look better if shinier with the twins lit but still looks nice and fresh.

sorry but nashville just looks boring as **** in this picture, and every single tower in this picture is really ugly, except for the two newer ones on the left edge.

I love this shot of NOLA taken from Uptown. Don't see many non-riverfront shots.

Sorry I didnt post a picture with dramatic clouds hoovering over the city, or with it all lit up at night. The skyline just looks the best from this angle, and its the first really good pic I have seen with the new tower completed. Ive said before that I dont like Nashvilles skyline or buildings that much, but luckily thats not what makes a city.

And Nashville has far more nightlife and entertainment options than OKC and Tulsa combined. Dont try to get into a pissing contest because you will lose every argument handily.

This one of Nashville is a little old and it doesn't have the newer buildings in SoBro and the Gulch but it does include Midtown.

Dallas, TX
It was taken in 2002 or 2003 so its kind of outdated as far as Uptown and Victory goes and it also excludes Reunion Tower, but it's still my favorite.

It isn't the best skyline shot and cuts out East Main etc, but I think its the density and getting to see the older urban fabric that makes me love this photo so much.
