^ Indeed. The thread has been very spammy lately.

Yes, guys! Post the best shots of a SKYLINE, not every piece of it you can dig up. I'm going to start deleting photos again if this keeps up. Nice rarely seen angles of Chicago, BTW. This is what we want.

To whom do you speak? Are you talking to me of all people? I've seen some great pictures of Bangkok and Manila and other places, but when you guys post pictures of a piece of a skyline and just a cluster of buildings that don't do the skyline justice and don't show the skyline at its best, then it really is off-topic for a thread called the World's Best Skylines.

If Yellow Fever and I see that you are posting too many pictures of a skyline that are only bits and pieces of it, we won't just ignore them, we'll go through the thread and delete them as we've done before. We have a thread in the photo section for posting every picture of a city you can find.

That particular perspective has been posted, but not that particular shot. Interesting mood it brings to the scene.

I think I'm one of the least prejudice people you can find, and I'm always on guard against racism in the forums toward any group of people. I've said this before on other threads, we all have to live together or we might as well nuke the planet now and get it over with.

But I want people to understand that on this thread we're looking for great angles of a skyline that really show it as its best and pictures that exemplify why it could be the World's Best skyline. Bits and pieces of a skyline can't show that. Some skylines are so huge, it's hard to get them into one picture, but here, we want to see the biggest and best parts.

Yes indeed! It indefinitely makes Chongqing look like a rising concrete jungle. The sky in that shot also complements the skyline extremely well. It's very amazing personally that the same thing (in this case the skyline of Chongqing) if slightly different can evoke a whole new mood and perspective (as you said) to the whole photograph!

Well, let's see if things improve first. I've been cautioned in the past about being a little too ban-happy. That ability might have even been taken away. I can't really say. It's been so long since I've used that option.
