IMO, waterfront skylines are still the best so I made HK, Shanghai and Singapore as my TOP3...
And here's the well-clustered
Metro Manila

People are totally entitled to have their opinions on which city has the better skyline, so thats no need to fight over it! I personally don't think Manila skyline looks bad at all.

You repost 6 pictures just to complain about them, and don't provide anything to add, whether your own list, pics, or otherwise? You sir, are the worst.

Manila is nice, but really needs 2 or 3 supertalls to make its skyline amazing.
For now, I would like to put it on my top 20 list, but not top 10

I dont think so, even though it lacks the supertall thing... The density, mass, organization, clustering, and somehow the height compensates those weaknesses. I think to better understand rating standards we should very well know each others skylines so that we would not be missing the real score and were not rating based on popular vote or merely on perceptions... For now I couldnt include it in the upper echelon of the Top10 but suffice me to say IMHO its enough to land at least 7th or 8th world & 6th in asia... & by the way my criterions are:
33% on density/mass
33% on aesthetics/height/icons
33% on organization/clustering
1% personal preference...
Thank you!

All the Manila fans:

If you are a fan of the small, dense clusters then you ought to look into Atlanta's skylines: Downtown, Midtown, Buckhead, and Perimeter Center. There isn't quite the quantity, but it's considerably taller, and its main building's designs are among the most unique and varying on the planet. The skyline looks great at night as well. It's more reminiscent of an Asian skyline than an American one.

But I can't put it even in my top 50, because it is much to small, loose, and sprawled. It just can't compete in terms of a skyline, but it can in architecture. I can barely but the skyline (note I didn't say buildings) in the top 10 in the U.S. If you're interested, look into its main buildings. If that's what you prefer in a skyline, go ahead, but I can't say that's what I prefer at all.

After seeing lots of Atlanta pics, I wud say the skyline looks fantastic & interesting. It kinda look like an American Jakarta, w/ a pretty linear devt w/ a good number of good-looking skypes. However, I dont see any Asian flavor in it, it looks purely American in my visual assessment. W/ Manila in view, it cud be the same path theyre taking... IMO its a Manila 15-20yrs ago sans the towering bldgs.
