In the Skyscrapers forum, I would like to see some of these cityscapes that don't show the skyline kept down to a minimum. Cityscapes is why we have the Urban Showcase.

Agree. And perhaps just 4-5 photos of any one city other wise it starts feeling like you're being hit over the head with it.

Mexico City should be on that list too, over Miami behind NY and Toronto

Okay, Mr. Brickellresidence, I suppose you would know living in both places.

I'm not quite sure how you could rank Kansas City, Pittsburg, Philadelphia, and LA (which barely has a skyline) above Miami, Vancouver, and Toronto..

That's the gist of it right there. Btw, Los Angeles very much has a skyline. Quite a big one actually. I'd put Philly over Vancouver as well: same size, but taller, and better architecture.

Its a great city, but the skyline is lacking compared to other major players.

I'm not arguing that it's a major player, but to say that it barely has a skyline like you did is puzzling. You realize LA has 67 buildings over 100m? That's more than any city in Canada except Toronto while US Bank Tower is taller than anything in Toronto.
