Don't think so. Rotterdam is smaller so it is definitely not more spread out and in that way perhaps denser than London.

Sometimes "size" in this case height doesn't matter.
I prefer Paris above London and Paris hasn't got a real Skyscraper. So?

London is 12 times bigger.

A part of the Rotterdam Skyline, that is rarely photographed.

I agree. I judge a skyline considering the overall feeling which gives to me, the height of the buildings is often important, but there aro also many other elements.

I do not agree. I have some opposite feelings about the skyline of Rotterdam. It is nice, has a good waterfront view and you always post very good pictures.... ....but it doesn't have that urban feeling of a global city that I like. It doesn't have iconic towers and most of the highrises look short and cheap. Moreover most of the comparable skylines are evolving faster and going to upper level. Rotterdam used to be one of my favourite skylines in Europe, but if we consider skyscraper skylines it is already out from my top ten. But I still consider it a nice skyline.

In my honest opinion, Milan is 5 or 6. I mean I have never seen such an improvement of the skyline in such a small time, in an European city. I just love that city, and the whole country, the Palazzo lombardia, and the Garibaldi towers are masterpieces and I can't wait to see the Citylife to be completed.
Again, it's my opinion, but cheers to my second most loved city after mine

Warsaw hasn't stopped to improve as well, and for me, it deserves better rankings. At first I didn't like the clad of the Zlota 44, but I'm getting used to it and I see that it's a great addition to the city. Warsaw makes me want to discover Poland because it's quite an unknown country to me.

Rotterdam has a massive and has an unique style for skyscrapers (or highrises as you want). Rotterdam's skyline is unique in Europe and that Dutch styled skyline is beautiful.

Those 3 cities deserve way more attention, so keep building !

About Milan you are right when you write that it is growing fast (and with several good quality buildings). I love it (it's my city) but its skyline still looks uncomplete. The Porta Nuova cluster still miss couple towers and there are still too many u/c buildings. The City Life cluster will move much higher the Milan's skyine in my ranking.

Warsaw looks like a very balanced and complete skyline, not so far from the top European skylines.

About Rotterdam... well, you can read my previous post.

The last pic of London just killed me - an absolutely stunning shot. I preferred Warsaw to London in advance yet I'm unyielding as to Frankfurt and Rotterdam's positions. As to London, the City is great but what about Canary Wharf? A simple mediocrity, you take any of the US downtowns and you have Canary - there's nothing unique, interesting or spectacular about this clot. It's too cliche to be on top spot.

Lyon, Sarajevo??? Never heard they can boast any decent skyline. Could you provide some panoramas to convince us? ))
