Perhaps we should all focus more on NA then. It could get rather confusing having every thread be about everything.

In Minneapolis, rumors of several 600-1000 ft towers being considered for the downtown core

Much as I think Chicago is great you surely cannot put it above New York City ..

Panama city is overlooked in this place and has a cool skyline .. but it lacks quality architecture.Same goes with Vancouver..

The rest of your list is mighty cool.

A lot of people find the Chicago skyline to be more aesthetically-appealing even though the New York skyline is twice as large, so this really isn't anything unusual. Panama City I think he has placed about where it should be. I would never place Seattle and Vancouver above Miami though and maybe not even Los Angeles and San Francisco.

Vancouver looks really impressive until you realize none of the buildings are actually very tall. The tallest building is, I believe 659 ft and it stands head and shoulders above most of the rest of the skyline much of which is around 30 residential floors (residential buildings being shorter than office buildings with the same number of floors).

Agree with that and would add that I liked Vancouver's skyline a lot more before that sea of glass condos went up. That said, architecture seems to be taking a dramatic uptick lately. The last 5 proposals I've see are some of the best I've seen anywhere. Now if only Vancouver would lift their ridiculous height restrictions.

Thanks DP, but that's not the best shot of Miami I've seen. Now you know why I took up urban/architectural photography myself after joining this website. I wasn't seeing what I wanted to see. I had to go out and capture those images myself. These were taken just last Sunday. In the second pic, you can see our new museum of art and science coming to completion on the right.
