These last few Auckland pictures really show how a good skyline doesn't need to have a lot of buildings and/or very tall buildings to be a good skyline. Auckland does not have a 200+ meter skyscraper. Only 13 skyscrapers are taller than a 100 meters (excluding the Sky Tower). But Auckland shows that this doesn't matter. The awesome location at the water adds so much to the aesthetic in my opinion. Besides that, the Sky Tower is a real landmark making the skyline really recognizable. It does for Auckland what the CN Tower does for Toronto.

I prefer skylines like that over the ones posted where you see cities covered in smog, with hundreds of plain residential buildings that all look the same. Where its hard to make out what city it is because they have nothing that makes it stand out. They may have more buildings or they may be taller but to me that doesn't make it a good skyline. The latter argument doesn't really apply to Oceanic skylines thread but in other threads the amount of skyscrapers is put forward as an argument to why the skyline would be better.
