It's already a top 10 skyline. It's just a matter of whether or not it can stay there.

Since I don't frequently visit this thread, this is the first time I have seen a clear shot of chongqing without smog. Its getting there. The skyline looks fine though they'd have to clean that brown river up (if possible) and tear down those seemingly condemned buildings to make the skyline look more spick and span...

Isn't that river brown due to silt?

By size it's 10th, overall I'd rank it a few notches further down. It loses lots of point on quality, and gains a few back for layout.

There are quite a few nice shots of Chongqing on this thread. It's the nice thing about this forum and SkyscraperCity. You get to see all sorts of places you've never been before.

Here, I'm inclined to agree with you.

The greatest skyline on earth ... New York. And it keeps building.

This is the Miami skyline with the Miami Beach skyline superimposed over it.

In terms of skyline itself I will find Chongqinone of the best due to the density and the line, even better than that of NY, but the facades of residential towers are really disgusting.

Yet such dirty facades are common in Hong Kong, too, I was shocked to learn that.

Toronto's getting noticeably denser and taller north of the CBD:

OMG! Great angle in that first Toronto pic. I thought the second one was Chicago at first.

Come back and post photos after 1 week? Ok?

And post photos that show the skyline at its best, not just a pic of a cluster of buildings that nowhere near give you the size of the skyline.

I like the angle in that first one as well. You can really notice a strong street apron building on Adelaide (that street on the left). The 2nd photo: I hadn't noticed that Chicago parallel, but it does have a similar look.
