Even if the thread is about "the best European skyline" I'd like to see something beyond the usual few cities.

Furthermore, this is about modern buildings but I think that European modern skylines are at their best when mixed with something historical:

Just an example.

Is this OT?


And yes I want to see Liverpool.

Another example, The Hague.

I adore the way old and new are mixed in this skyline, expecially that two incredible "traditional on steroids" buildings with pitched roof.

I don't mind the skylines are mixed of new and old buildings. The taller and newer towers are usually more eyes catching anyway.

Istanbul really has surprised me following this thread over the years. Some serious growth and that landscape brings it such a character.

I agree and Hague indeed looks amazing in that front. It's also the reason why I like Paris a lot as you can't really get that specific mix anywhere else.

In the global stage NYC's art deco skyscrapers are pretty much perfection to me, even more when you mix it up with rest of the NYC skyscrapers. Why some of the new skylines raising especially in Asia don't impress me maybe as much as it does some others.

...I usually never post the skyline from Barcelona in this thread, as I don't think it belongs among the best in Europe yet, when it comes to e.g hight (although hight is not the only thing, which makes a good skyline)...but here you go then, my friend

MILANO / VIEW FROM GIAX TOWER TO CATHEDRAL

Skyline will be improved soon with redevelopment of old towers and construction of other skyscrapers in Porta Nuova.
This view doesn't include second cluster (under construction) at CityLife District.

Yes, I'd happen to agree. It can get a bit tiresome as skylines take a while to change.

Maybe we could have a "Best 2nd Tier European Skyline Thread"??

Up to the mods of course. It would be nice to have somewhere to showcase the likes of Lyon, Birmingham, Liverpool, Manchester, Berlin, Hamburg etc as they will never be the best, but they aren't exactly bad either and all building upwards.

Birmingham is starting to build again. Lots of plans coming on to the table although not especially high they will certainly fill the skyline out.

Hello there Birmingham. There is a thread called "European Cities Skylines"

You might want to check it out

I understand, but my point is you still get all the top cities over powering the rest in that thread. You have to trawl through hundreds of the same pictures of London, Moscow, Paris, Frankfurt etc until you see a lesser skyline and then it's not discussed and lost for nobody to ever see again.

Its 2 threads it seems for the same pictures and discussion. Why don't we split it up a bit??

I think a juxtaposition of the old and the new is what makes the best kind of skyline shot, so I don't know. The split is something I've never really understood anyway.

BARCELONA

The city has different districts were you can find some highrises, but the city hall does not like excessively tall buildings and they prefer eclectic and trendy ones.

This pictures are a collection from those different areas:

Madrid and Barcelona are gorgeous cities but this is a wrong thread to post pictures of those cities.

LOL

Even though I do not think that those cities has superb skylines, I cannot get why people can post pictures about Birmingham, The Hague, Lyon, Milan or some other cities and I could not post Madrid's, with four towers over 230m. I even miss Warsaw here, but I expect Polish forumers to do so since they have a pretty beautiful downtown.

If it's just about height, shut this thread down. You already have Moscow and Frankfurt. There is no need to discuss anything unless we are blind enough to see that those cities have the tallest towers.

If we take into account other criteria, I don't really get your post.
