I would just like to see a large skyline in a spectacular setting such as this picture of Banff. I thought of Toronto because they are both in the same country and thought Toronto would look nice here.

Can anyone photoshop a picture of the Petronas Towers in New York instead of the WTC and add a sydney opera house to it. I wonder if it would look good.

Interestingly enough, I couldn't find pictures that would match.

Pagoda-like buildings like the Petronas wouldn't fit well in US Cities like New York, imo.

And as much as the Toronto/Calgary-in-Banff picture looks good, there's no way you'd see any city like that

I once used Google Earth and Sketchup to create a fictional Miami skyline. Here are some views of it.

Post 23 and 26 could are the only ones that really work for me. Combining a bunch of stand-out designs rarely works well. Have a few really nicely designed tall buildings and a large number of modernist fillers for a more cohesive look.

Now this I really like! There is aerial of Toronto on one of these threads that I think would fit well into the photo of Banff above, but I can't find that photo of Toronto right now. You might know which one I'm thinking of. It's probably my favorite aerial of the city.

This is not the aerial I was thinking of, but this might actually work better. I don't know. Maybe if you inverted the skyline.

With regard to putting New York were Los Angeles is, I was thinking more in terms of this kind of backdrop.

Toronto in Banff
It was a very quick photoshop and I couldn't match the colors, so I just made it black and white. I'm not that good with Photoshop. But I hope, this is what you had in mind.

It does look great. I was thinking of having the city on the other side of that small mountain though with the waterfront with CN tower facing the mountains on the left. I don't think that colors are really that far off. I'd do it with the same colors and see how it workds.

[QUOTE=Hauler;110031552]I was bored and created a skyline out of some of my favorite skyscrapers.
I used Vancouver, Canada, as my base and then added just over 40 buildings to it.
I tried to stay true to the original heights of the towers, but I think some of them don't match.
What do you think? Would you want your city to look like this?
Also, feel free to post you own fantasy skylines.


Hello Hauler,
I really like your work.Do you have an online portfolio to view your other work? Also, can I have your contact information for business purpose.
Thanks
Shaima

I like the idea of moving cities to different locations. I may take a stab at photoshop. But in the meantime...

I doodle skylines sometimes. This is one of them.
