It would have to be the Chicago skyline for me. Not trying to put down HK, NYC or other cities though...

Freedom of speech

But sometimes, we tend to criticize opinions as well

As for Cincinnati, for a mid-rise skyline is impressive.

Cincy has a nice collection of older style buildings, nothing very tall, but they do a good job lighting them up.

When it comes to lighting yes Cincinnati is well lit. Anyway, I think this city is more par with the likes of Oakland, San Diego or Kansas City.

I agree, also put in the virtually unknown Des Moines. A city with a population under 200k, but a skyline that can compete with cities of much larger sizes, like Cincy.

Cities like Des Moines, Cinncinnati or Kansas City have impressive skylines but if since this is world skylines and not North America, it's still far from being top 10. They need to build alot of supertalls and iconic buildings which I think it unecessary for these cities.

Tokyo's skyline is really impressive too. It should replace Chicago in the first pic.
New list:
1. Hong Kong
2. New York
3. Tokyo

Tokyo's skyline is ok. But it's not as organized, tall or iconic as Chicago.
