PS. I can find three spelling mistakes in your post.

I used to but I don't have the time to go searching. So its up to you and DMT now to basically find as many as possible. The smaller cities often get missed however I think they are just as important as they get people looking beyond their little worlds. We all see pics of Perth, Brisbane, Melbourne, GC and Sydney and we know what to expect. I for one am never surprised or interested in these. However when I see a skyline pic of, say Woden ACT or a recent pic of Bunbury WA it makes me (and I guess others) suddenly sit up and take notice that there are other places in this continent - not just the big few.

3 things JT.

1. The less the population, cool place to be, scenic the less there are pics being taken of that place.
2. There needs to a skyline or a) pics wont be taken b) i wont post pics of buildings or something that isnt a decent skyline shot
3. a place needs a vantage point for decent pics. most places have some. big cities have a few which most of us have seen 1000 times, but some smaller places lack this thus minimizing the chance of the pics being taken/me posting it

Also i'm flat out with uni these days as u can tell i havent been posting even the big 5 (per,melb, syd, bris & gc .. given up on adel) as frequently. today i was at uni all day so tonight rewarding myself by wasting time on here lol

Google Earth and Panoramia (whatever they call it) is great for getting photos. Go to a city and look for hills or vantage points. You will notice people have taken pics from those points. A good example would be Kings Park in Perth or Kangaroo pt cliffs - we have all seen that though. Try the hills around Canberra, or any small city really for great skyline shots. Jetties and wharfs around harbours are good too - such as Darwin Harbour. It's much quicker than Flickr and much more interesting.

But I'm sure you know all this.

I luv the way Soleil looks from a distance with the swirly sides, very distinctive. Awesome addition to the skyline.

The Gold coast looks awesome with its latest curvy additions. Adds some great distinction to the skyline.
