I couldn't even recognize Paris for a sec in this picture. This is not La Defense though. Is it? Reminds me of Miami

And still improving. The gap on the left inbetween the church tower and the main cluster will be filled with two new highrises this year.

Undoubtedly one of the most American skylines in Europe. (In a positive sense )

Frankfurt looks so good from that angle - AMAZING!

Paris just looks tastey.... So dense and lovely.

Great London pictures btw

@stravinsky - I also think Canary Wharf in London is quite Americanised.

IMO Canary Wharf is the most Americanized/Canadianized Skyline in the whole of Europe. It was planned and designed by the Canadian developer. Not to mention the view from the street level. All the signs and directions are in English and Canadian names and it also have the same skyscraper designed by the same architect that New York has.

I think London is the best as it can offer a very broad range of different kinds of designs, heights and skylines in several locations.

Pretty nice ranking. See you tomorrow for some complaint.
Uum.. I know everyone is entitled to their opinions and I do respect that but I am really curious to know that do you really think the skylines of napoli, Barcelona and bruxells etc are better than London? If so, why and what are the advantages of these skylines that London lacks.?
