The Hague is looking brilliant. Very clean, tidy and elegant.

Milan is also seriously doing a great job in getting up there with the big boys.

In regards to London. It's so difficult for people I think to get an idea of where the skyline could be in 10-20 years time due to the numerous clusters.

I think it's hard for even Londoners to grasp. It's very hard to show what it could look like so it's a case of wait and see. However it does turn out it's going to be 3 times bigger than what you see now in 10-15 years at least and that's quite staggering I think.

I think you or somebody offered a rendering of what it might look like on the Best Skylines by 2025 thread, and it was pretty impressive.

It is amazing how beautiful some of these skylines are. I'd have to say my favorites are:

1. London - I love the combination of the Wheel, the Parliament, Canary Wharf, the new Shard and other very innovative buildings!
2. Paris - Any skyline that includes the Eiffel Tower cannot be excluded from the most beautiful ones in the world; plus, La Défense has become incredible. Just lost a bit in my concept because of the Montparnasse tower, that is a stain in the city.
3. Moscow - Old buildings, new skyscrapers, great cluster. Too bad they slipped a bit in the choice of colors (an orange building? urgh!)
4. Frankfurt - The "Meinhattan" always looks great, it just needs newer buildings to become even better. Not taller ones, just newer.
5. Milan and Rotterdam - Both look great, but very incipient. Amazing opportunity to improve in the future. They need a "symbol"!
6. Vienna - Very classy, very elegant, a little discreet but also great room for improvement in the future.

Other ones I like are Madrid, Warsaw (some of the pictures are amazing) and The Hague (first time seen two posts above, great with all the twin towers). Benidorm, however, should be excluded from these lists, it became too messy and it lacks organization, looking almost like a Latin American city (and not in a good way).

Milan:

Question: Do anyone know what they are construction in the left side of the photo...in the distance?...It seems to be a tall highrise, but I can't quite place it..

Can you resize it? A lot of these photos are great, but we just can't allow every body to post them. They slow things down to much.

@aarhusforever, I actually enjoy the big size as it is such a clean and hi-res picture of Frankfurt and gives me a good view of the individual skyscrapers. Thanks for showing this one! Please don't delete.
