I know Toronto doesn't have the greatest in the World but I think it has a wide variety of designs.

Both New York and Hong Kong have upcoming new icons for their skylines. Freedom Tower will make a very nice addition to the Lower Manhattan view while ICC will create a gateway effect in Hong Kong harbour.

I just love Hong Kong, it's dense, it's tall and it's huge! Plus the mountains in the background make it evan more special.

These 3 alone explain why Chicago skyline is #1 in the universe IMHO!

find me other world's extreme vertical skyine that has the shot like the one below! Some other great candidate might be NYC and Toronto!
chicago skyline has 3 simple qualities:

Extreme verticalness and length:


Extreme Density and compactness:


Length and Width:


and one and only:


Follow in distant in order HK and NYC....rest who cares, since we are looking for da "BEST"!

Sydney is definitely and obviously the best. We have more colour and shapes in the skyline, whereas Chicago is just boxes.

Here is Sydney taken by me.

...but you're right, nothing but boxes.












sydney shouldn't be used in the same sentence as Chicago.

Personally, I wouldnt say Chicago or Sydney. Chicago is just boxes. And 99% of the buildings lack inspiration. Sydney is a bore. A lot of that is just boxes and I dont think a load of colour will actually get you anywhere.

I am still thinking what I would chose though,.

Hong Kong - tall boxes everywhere


New York City - brown & old boxes


Shanghai - new boxes


All of the contenders for "world's best skyline" are comprised mostly of boxes with hidden gems and obvious landmark towers.
