Tell me, are moderator or something like it to decide which cities should be in this thread and which cities can't?

Warsaw, Milano, Madrid or other cities are not enough for you?

I would rather people posted interesting pictures that weren't particularly pretty… pictures that really show everyday life… good and bad.. in European cities.

My favourite thread is this one… for example..

http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...ghlight=london

Really shows what life on the ground in London looks like.

People should discuss why the photo should be on this thread, I think. Discuss what makes it the best skyline or one of the best skylines in Europe.

I really don't like the idea of my deciding what cities should go here and what shouldn't because "Best" can be so subjective. For the more unusual choices, it would be nice for people to tell us what the see in the skyline.

But in this thread, the pictures should show every day life...good and bad... in juxtaposition with the skyline. I'm going to go through the London thread you posted a link to and pic some out.

Street scenes and people shots in and of themselves don't belong here. These type of shots in juxtaposition with the skyline I think are what make some of the best urban photography. Here are just a few examples that I gleaned from the London thread.

@QuantumX : My last opinion deserved for some respect... especially from administrator. Your answer was needless. And yes! I suppouse - wait, no I know it - keep waiting and London skyline in 10-15 years will be better than 90% of american skylines. If you want to answer my opinion - do it without needless words. Thank you.

People need to add more to their comments on their choices of the best skyline. Those one sentence posts are simply not enough to support their claim.

I felt complimented that he thought of me as an administrator, but no thanks! Being a moderator is enough of a headache!

Agreed, these types of thread are so monotonous. Last time I checked, discuss doesn't mean 'post as many freaking pictures of Moscow as you can'. We get it already, Moscow has a couple of 'scrapers.
