some cities like Milan and Paris cannot be considered by citylimits. Milan is much bigger then the citylimits, and everyone should know on SSC

everyone knows that Paris municipality has 2.2k people, but says Paris has 6 or 10 or 12 million people. (even if 10 or 12 is the metro area)

the same should be for Milan: everyone should definitively know that it has 4k people, and its metro-area is 7.4k as shown everywhere (updated and serious sourches)

The latest estimation about Milan Metropolitan Area claims 8.123'020 people.

Guys ! Finally I've vieved all the pages in topic in search of best photos/angles of all significant cities in this "best skyline competition."
PHOTOS ARE BORROWED and most of them was published in this thread or forum. I hope that no one will have objections.
I was vieving this topic for few hours and doing it so mechanically so i forgot to save the sources. Sorry for that.

The biggest problem i had with London and Rotterdam and Frankfurt but finally i found it to !!!
There is so hard to mark properly that i will split cities at classes mainly because the choice within it depends of aesthetic tastes.
For me its the right order.. I hope u will enjoy this set !!!

Class 1.
For me absolutelly winner ! PAris with La Defense ! Just Stunning !!


Frankfurt ( I have the impression that there is a better angle of its skyline)


Intanbul with its number of quite high towers. This city is going to get 2nd place in quite near future.

Class2.

London with its 2 cluster's . IT's really hard to find a proper picture with right angle of view. ( i have same feeling with Frankfurt)

Moscow with its massive supertalls and skyscraperss.


Class 3.

Warsaw with its quite nice and still growing skyline.


Rotterdam - strong competition for Warsaw.


On the end of this class - Benidorm with its very dense but quite poor buildings.
Hovever this city deserve for this class thanks to number of towers. Panorama is similar to Rio



Class 4.

Milan with its recently built towers.


Madrid - this city has a bit tiny skyline. 4 x 250m towers overlaps and we can't see full potential.
IF we choose an angle with all 4x250 in view then the second cluster will dissapear and skyline won't be good looking.
All in all this angle is peacemaking .



Class 5.

Barcelona
image hosted on flickr


Hague


Vienna

Naples


There is ofc more cities ( like Kiev, Yakatineburg and many others which i dont forget for now) but w/o highly distinctive skyline

My mom is from Istanbul, I'm addicted to the Istanbul section here and I'm an Istanbul skyline enthusiast but I would still change place with Moscow and Istanbul in your list. An other alternative would be to combine class 1 and 2 because I think the cities are almost equally impressive in their own way.

I'm agree with JanVL. Architecture is conditioned by several factors as society, economy, influence ... of certain historical periods. "Architecture is the mirror of every country". Infact, everyone has had a different architecture. Now, thanks to globalization, architecture is becoming almost the same: cities have skyscrapers or towers in steel and glass.

As a Turkish person, I am ashamed of our capital. Unfortunately, Ankara has no place in this thread. At least not until the religious clown mayor gets the f away from the office. The election was nothing but a play with full of frauds anyway.

Since the most people only post skyline shots from the perfect angle or spot,
I dare you all to post 2 shots from each direction (north, south, west and east) and 2 shots from air and street level of your favourite Skyline.
Besides this task you may post 2 of your favourite skyline shots.
I think this is very interesting because than we see the weak and strong points of the skylines and it could make people change their mind about these skylines.
For me personal a perfect skyline is not just building lots of skyscrapers or high rises randomly in a city.

I'm starting off with Rotterdam
