Good shot of Dallas! I do find the amount of surface parking downtown to be baffling.

One skyline that is absolutely "taking the next step" is San Francisco. Here's a cool one I saw on SSP.

A couple Boston I took this month. This is from a quickly developing area (reclaimed Seaport) and the views won't last....

Hm yeah I'm not sure I would call LA's skyline iconic. But perhaps with the Hollywood sign and some palm trees in view it could be. LA is definitely one of those cities that depends on its geography a little bit, like Hong Kong or Rio.

Tons of movies have used LA's skyline through the years. That's the exposure it gets for basically being the movie-making capital of the world. For example, the most memorable scene of "Independence Day" was probably the destruction of the Library Tower with all the alien-welcoming freaks standing on top.

I'm not saying that you're right, and I'm not saying that you're wrong. But, since you made the assertion, can you please name 5 skylines that would be more recognizable than LA worldwide?

I don't like that convention center though. I feel like that water front could be put to much better use and have a nicer aesthetic.

The salesforce tower has definitely made an improvement for the skyline. I feel the building itself is rather bland, though. The SOM design was a massive missed opportunity. A huge mistake, imo.

I think we're hijacking this thread but my answer: New York, Hong Kong, Sydney, Dubai, Chicago for starters.
