In numbers not the biggest skyline, but quality wise, Chicago and London are the finest looking skylines i can think of.

Shenzhen's getting so much better. Before it was just big, now it's also building great looking skyscrapers. I don't think it's at that top echelon yet, but will be soon.

Futian CBD's skyline is already amazing and it will improve much with Ping An and Gamdale Gangxia Tower. In addition the Futian skyline will be combined better and better with the skyline of Louhu district. But I think Nanshan's skyline will be even better because there aren't so much boxes and the highs are much more balanced. And there are also much buildings planned between Nanshan and Futian, but I think it would be pretty hard to combine these skylines... We will see. Judging on the videos Qianhai's skyline will be the most epic at the end but it is to speculative a the moment. I just hope that all this great projects aren't destroyed by a financial crisis at the end. My current ranking of Shenzhen is 9th or 10th in my top 10 list.
My top 10 ranking (these are rough positions, that can change pretty fast. But the approximately ranking is correct):
1. New York (Amazing buildings, and an absulutely classy skyline. It will be hard for other cities to beat New York sometime.)
2. Hong Kong (A city of the future with too much buildings to count and most of the taller ones are amazing.)
3. Shanghai (So many tall buildings in one CBD, it looks just awesome)
4. Chicago (Same as New York, but much shorter and I am not a fan of Chicago's supertalls, because of that "only" position 4)
5. Guangzhou (Love the Canton Tower and the layout of the main skyline)
6. Dubai (I don't like that the skyline is so unbalanced because of Burj Khalifa, 800m is just too tall if no 500m or 600m building is near there to balance it IMO. Also the skyline is not this great at daytime because the designs of many building are not that good, that's why the city with most supertalls isn't ranked that high. But it is my position 3 or 4 when we are talking about nighttimeskylines.)
7. Toronto (I like how CN-Tower is dominating the skyline, and normally I don't really like dominating buildings )
8. Singapur (So futuristic and looks perfect, the only problem is that there are too less buildings and the skyline is not that big.)
9. Shenzhen (A bit too much log homes, but like I said it will be much more epic in the future and is my number 1 candidate to beat NY as world's best skyline sometimes, but for now it is Number 9 in my ranking.)
10. Moscow (Amazing and creative buildings making a good Number 10 skyline.)

And What about Benidorm (Spain)? I know that it is not playing in the same league that NYC or HK, but is there any other city with only 70.000 habs and more skyscrapers or impresive skyline?

No place for Guangzhou in top 10?
