I've seen more recent pictures of Miami, and I have been more impressed with them. So I will give it an 8/10

Overall: 8.0/10

Nice height, but too many buildings look the same.

Love the night shots!

8/10

few skyscrapers, but enough to make it an effective skyline...

Having spent much time in Miami I can say it's difficult to photograph the entirety of the skyline because it also spreads east of DT to the barrier islands of Miami Beach. Downtown combined with Miami Beach is quite impressive although not terribly tall.

Here's some shots of Miami Beach....













Downtown from the Miami River

of course I'm going to be biased since this is my hometown....Miami's skyline is everchanging...the city currently has 40+ skyscrapers under construction/approved or proposed now...the most construction going on in the US after New York & Chicago in my opinion...the city is booming!!

here is a pic from Wil in Chicago who came for a visit....
realize the tall building on the left is the Four Seasons and the tallest on the right is the Wachovia Bank..both near 800 ft./242m..the big gap in the right is where the Miami River empties into our bay..

I think I would love the city but I don't love the skyline. The few office towers they have are nice though. 6.0

with the exception of some good looking scrapers, its like an typical skyline full of boxes. 6.5 for having some exceptional buildings and also being on a beach.

nice city- always reminds me of Australias Gold Coast but with taller buildings- not for much longer though!

I love the whole beach-side city thing. Id love to visit Miami one day.

8/10

I like. It's enhanced by the water, as well as the bridges. It could be just a little more compact IMO. 7.5/10.
