Post a shit ton of pictures of your skyline doesn't make it any better. It's just annoying.

KL has a pretty shitty skyline minus the Petronas Towers. If they weren't there it would look like any other East-Asian city.

No one's posted any pics of Detroit, so here's some. Not the World's Best, but it's still pretty great.

I don't care if you post different angles of a skyline. If your skyline doesn't have a chance at being voted worlds best skyline then DON'T POST IT IN THIS THREAD. Simple as that.

I don't think any skyline can seriously rival Hong Kong at present. NYC was amazing with the iconic Twin Tower but that has been gone a while ago. Therefore I am quite surprised seeing the voting results. Landscape is also a contributor to HK's glory.

Istanbul is in the poll too, but it sure as hell doesn't deserve to be shown in this thread.

I'm actually not as worked up as my posts might seem. I just think it's stupid to post pictures of cities that clearly do not have the worlds best skyline, in the worlds best skyline thread. Know what I mean?

I think that there are 5 or 6 cities which could be considered to have the best skyline. (New York, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Chicago, and Dubai)
Any other city should be posted somewhere else.
