It is, but way too small of a skyline for a 'world's best' thread. Quantitatively, it's not even in the top 50.

Why can not upload pictures here from Europe? Some cities apply for 10-20 in the world and may be interested in compilers their lists TOP20.
for example Moscow

Moscow is the closest European skyline to cracking the top 20.

True, but that study only takes into account quantitative measures. Moscow is the 20th largest (using their criteria), but this thread is a discussion of which is best. Size is just one consideration.

Panama City is 15th on that list, but I have if far further down on my World's Best list. If this was a 'World's Biggest Skyline' thread, I'd certainly keep Panama City in 15th.

Great find Zach. Etobicoke really does awesome views of downtown Toronto.

I think that's actually Mississauga. You can see Sherway in the bottom left.
