AGREE

My personal best skyline in the world is SANGHAI AND TOKYO.
Well, Americans say 'In God We Trust'.
Skyscrapercity says 'In Urbanity We Trust'.
And me ... 'In Mathematics We Trust'.

Thanks to NYCrulz for finding these great shots!

Yes, nice finds! But we want you all to post in accordance with the Flickr guidelines Yellow Fever stickied on the front page of the forum, and we have this same sticky posted throughout SkyscraperCity. It is very critical if we want to continue to use Flickr.

Those letters hurt my eyes, you need to relax a bit. It's not like I didn't credit them, just forgot about the BBC code.

Post has been corrected, and the pics shown are according to the rules.

I've only run into that problem when the photographer restricted the downloading of their pics. Ask Yellow Fever about that.

I don't need to relax a bit. What we need is for people to hear us and listen to what we are saying.

I much prefer Toronto's skyline from here than the usual lake shots.

I wonder if it was someone's intention to create a landscape that looked like the future. These shots are really futuristic - love them!!

Those Dubai shots my look like the future but only from our perspective now. Look at all those illustrations from decades past about how the future would look and each 'future' already looks pretty dated and tacky.
