Anyone else here reckon the last pic looks like Melbourne (viewing from the south yarra) or just me?

Frankfurt is an interesting city, from certain angles it even looks like Tokyo's Shinjuku.

The Messeturm and the Main tower (and the tree canopy) reminded me of Atlanta.

The glassy skyscrapers look a bit like La Defense.

The Commerzbank Tower is one of my favorite Foster designs ever.

Good eye there. Those two towers do like they're from Atlanta

The Westendr looks like the Capella Tower in Minneapolis.

Frankfurt has a beautiful skyline!
