yeah, HDR pics are affordable for me generally, but the both over-done HDR pics make the view looks blurred, grim, dim and ruined. It's far from any FUTURISTIC to me.

(and I said not WWII but WW3, likely SF imagination shown in classical anime.)



my answer is above.
Oh, no. I hate HDRs

The urban sprawl in Tokyo is just incredible, truly beyond words. Iíd vote it the best Asian metropolis, not just for the large scale urbanization, but also for the excellent infrastructures.

But the large scale can be a negative factor for someone to appreciate the skyline. Like you mentioned, Tokyo skyscrapers are clustered in different areas. I think it will look much better if we just take a photo of partial Tokyo. But I will always get distracted when the whole city is presented. Seoul has a similar situation. Anyway, the two represent a unique type of cityscape (another typical city would be S„o Paulo).

How do you pronounce 京阪神 in chinese?

I guess 京阪神 in chinese is pronounced as Jingbanshen.

Japan is a very beautiful country. Japanese cities look more beautiful in real life than in pics here. China should learn more useful experience in urban development and management from Japan, I think.

I think at street level japanese cities are the best. You can't really see it in the pictures from above but Tokyo has many trees, parks and for places like Shinjuku it is very pretty at street level because of all the lights. Just my opinion though. I really am not a fan of japanese skylines, I just posted them here to change the pace of the thread lol.

I didn't make it up . As you can see it is chinese pronounciation! Jing = Kei, Ban = Han, Shen= Shin

dont take this the wrong way

but Dubai's skyline though filled with great projects and skyscrapers individually comes across as fake and plastic somehow.

Singapore comes across as a naturally built skyline. (if that makes sense)

For eg, in the Marina pic there are hardly any people. Its like a ghost town lacking atmosphere.
