Is that an aberration or is modesty in short supply down there?

That's more of an aberration. I was taken aback myself when I saw that! It was like "Good Lord!"

These I took today from the Royal Caribbean parking lot. You can see it just bottom of center in that "in your face" Port of Miami poster.

I think it was made because Royal Caribbean is now basing all of it's largest ships out of Port of Everglades. Their headquarter offices are at Port of Miami, so the port officials are poking at RCCL. It's a bit like siblings arguing and taunting each other.

This is not Fort Lauderdale as the photographer specified. This is Sunny Isles Beach. I'm surprised they didn't call it Miami Beach, a mistake a lot of photographers make.

MDguy, Our SSC Friendly Family Friend from Baltimore, Maryland, My Birthplace, but then after moved to Miami-Dade County, This is Beautiful Sunny Isles Beach Skyline in Miami-Dade , Sorry , it's Not Ft. Lauderdale , in fact it's almost 20 miles away from Ft.Lauderdale Beach, But the 2nd Photo of yours is the City of Ft. Lauderdale and the Intracoastal Waterway where the photo was taken from the 17th Street Causeway Bridge , Very Nice Sunset of the city of Sunny Isles Beach in Miami-Dade County

QuantumX, Our SSC Friendly Family Miami Moderator and # 1 Miami Photo friend,
I see you beat me to this , sorry I took so long

Thanks guys! Sorry about that! I was very suspicious of that photo not actually being Ft Lauderdale. I couldn't spot the twins that Ft. Lauderdale has!

MDguy, Our SSC Friendly Family Friend from Baltimore ,Maryland,
The Twins that Ft. Lauderdale Has, you must mean The " Las Olas River House 1 " its not really the same height, the Tallest one the " Las Olas River House 1 " is the tallest tower in Ft. Lauderdale at 452 Feet , 42 floors, completed in 2004 Is only " One Tower " with it's Hooked On " 2nd Tower " next to it at a lower height, Unless you mean the Donald " Trump Twin Towers " of the City of " West Palm Beach ", They are Even Height Twin Towers !!

Is that because of the high altitude in MC?
