I'll start with something easy.

Where stands this building ?

Hint: This building stands on the banks of the longest river of the country.

Nice idea, but I think there is an issue with this game right now.
Even if I wouldn't have seen any of this highrises before, I could give you the right answer without your hints, because you only have to check the image-url

You can download, rename and re-upload the image on Photobucket.

That does not work. You can still search with Google after this image.

Didn't thought about alternatives so far. My first idea was similar to Mansoors.
But maybe there would be some issues with image coyrights ...
How can you google this image, if you chose a random name for it?

How can you google this image, if you chose a random name for it?
You can reverse image search it.
Concerning how to make this game harder to cheat in, I suggest doing what MansoorBashir suggested, but reversing the image before re-uploading. This way google images struggles to locate its original source, although sometimes it still does. I believe this is what ChristosGreece does on the guess the country/city thread, but I could be wrong.
By the way, great idea for a game, KlausDiggy!
