The Frankfurt pictures are great, even more so that they are taken with a D7100, really impressive.

I still find the skylines of Paris and Frankfurt to be superior to that of London. I can't quite point my finger at the reason, but that is the feeling I get when I look at the pictures.

I do too, I think it's because they are organized better. Like in Paris, they are not just building skyscrapers all over the city, they have a designated area for skyscrapers creating a nice dense cluster.

Because they are better. Better organized and more dense.
I like the design of the scrapers in London more though, but as a skyline it's inferiour to both Paris and Frankfurt.

Frankfurt and Paris designed and built taller sooner than London. London's skylines are developing currently.

For instance the city has 2/3rds less 150m towers than Frankfurt so it's not likely to compete just yet. However, London has significantly bigger and higher number of towers U/C or proposed which once completed will at least be on par with these cities.

Canary Wharf is a work in progress.

In 10 years time when it add's 30+ 100m towers to the area then it'll become a league of it's own. For now, it's behind as it's still an unfinished masterpiece.

Also, you have to take in to account the nature of it's surroundings. London is actually very dense and the towers don't soar as much as they would in Paris/Frankfurt etc which I think diminishes the effect they have.
