An old one (2011!) but one of my favourite Paris Skyline shots.

Nice shot!

If I might be honest. I liked Istanbul more before the high-rise and Skyscraper boom.
The city itself with a superb setting is ecstatic.

Three big lanes fades out to a tiny little lane .. not great road planning.At least they can admire the fantastic Moscow skyline whilst waiting to hit that little lane

Is the world seeing a truly global boom at the moment? I wonder if our connectedness could have soemthign to do with it. A global economic boom (I dont think the recent downturn was a bust), truly globalised fashion, globalised trade, globalised thinking. I can't help but think that booms are accompanied by skyscrapers, and that booms are followed by crashes throughout history.

Great skylines though. For me, I've always been wowed by the beautiful harmonious composition of the following that are greater than the sum of their parts :

1: Frankfurt
2: Paris
3: The Hague

while some cities have a lot of talls but the composition isn't great on the eye:

9: Moscow
10: London
11: Rotterdam
12: Istanbul
13: Benidorm
...

Agree regarding the Hague and ofcourse Paris and Frankfurt have wonderful skylines.

Disagree regarding London though.For me it's beauty lies in it's seeming chaos.

My new List...

The big five are, Moscow, London, Paris, Istanbul, and Frankfurt.

Then comes the second league, led by Warsaw, Madrid, Milan, Rotterdam, Benidorm, Ekaterinburg.

The third league are Barcelona, Kiev, Brussels, Berlin, Turin, Lyon, Manchester and some others.
