I don't really like that golden/orange tower in Moscow, it looks kitsch.

according to me, best skylines are skylines that have a perfect mix of good height -with various heights (not buildings with all the same height)-, good density (too dense is not always the best for me) and good quality of buildings. I think the point of "various heights" that makes a dynamic sky-LINE, is very important.
for example, la defence cluster is perhaps too dense and has no dynamic line, because all the buildings seems to have all the same height (more or less, obviously) and there's not that one building that dominates the skyline, like in Frankfurt classic-view there's.

you can see immediately the difference in what I said:

Google results


Google results

on the other hand, from some points, Frankfurt skyline lacks of density.

in any case, that's the perspective of Paris I prefer.

the problem with Istanbul is the same of Paris in terms of heights, but Istanbul one also lacks of density.

London skyline is best, only in that perspectives that put together city cluster and canary warf.

Moscow cluster is impressive for its height, but needs shorter towers around, and a bit less density.

for the rest, I really cannot understand those who consider Madrid skyline better than Milan one. perhaps they consider only the really good but same height of those 4 simmetric towers.

just considering these 2 pics taken from the previous page, I think there isn't even the need to compare them:






and also I don't understand why 90% of you don't consider Naples cluster in your top 10 or top 15 list

Even though it is a 15 years old picture with 3 or 4 major buildings missing. Problem with density is we don't notice great buildings not being on photos
