10 - New York
9 - Dubai
8 - Hong Kong
7 - Shanghai
6 - Chicago
5 - Sydney
4 - Tokyo
3 - Kuala Lumpur

I was gonna give my city one more point, but there are at least 5 other cities I like the skylines better... And I don't wanna be biased!

List represents the 100 (now +100) largest skylines in the world, occasionally l'll put top 10, like in the second page, and we will see how top 10 changes.

How do you think about the best skyline? I think it isn't only beautiful but it is also pure, clean, no traffic jam...

That has to do with what one thinks about a city, not what one thinks about its skyline? Skyline means the silhouette that buildings make with the sky.

Tokyo, Istanbul and Toronto above NYC? the only skyline where it could be above NYC in some tops is only Hong Kong as of now.. and perhaps Shanghai. Btw i'm not a New Yorker.

yes Shanghai. Probably the most highrise city in the world right now, and most undercounted.
By 2007 it was adding more highrise space than all of Manhattan's office space each year
(housing nearly a million newcomers annually).

Hong Kong and Shanghai compared (to scale by the height of their supertalls). Bear in mind HK is more highrise than NYC, both in number of highrises , skyscrapers and cumulative height.

Spliff Fairy, hasn't Yellow Fever told you before about posting per Flickr guidelines sticked on the front page of the forum? We're serious about this and Flickr is serious about this. You're going to see your photos start disappearing if you don't start doing this because eventually everybody'will who uses Flickr will see their photos disappear. I mention this in the forum and not a PM because this serves as a reminder to everyone who uses Flicker.

Perhaps 'RokasLT' can update the top 10 points list to get this derailed thread back on track. This ain't a picture thread folks. It's a statistical analysis based on top 10 lists posted in this thread. Stay focused!
