im gonna have to throw in a new one here. personally i think vancouver is great. it has all of my favorite things. i think density is more important than height and vancouver is dense. it is on a waterfront. there are mountains in the background. i know that describes HK, but i think Vancouver is constantly forgotten about.

i understand the point of this thread, but there should also be some for the best skylines by population categories b/c some less populated cities are almost equal or better than other larger cities. for example, Sydney, Vancouver, San Francisco, Seattle, Perth, Tel Aviv, and Honolulu are overlooked (i think) becuase they are not the best skylines. but i think those are great skylines especially for the small populations that those cities have.

in North America, i would Vancouver has the best skyline.

in Europe it would Paris.

In Asia, it would be Hong Kong.

In Africa, it would Johannesburg.

In South America, it would be Rio since it has ocean and mountains included in the skyline.

In Oceania, it would Sydney. Perth comes pretty close though, since it has a very modern look to it. Sydney and Perth compete almost like HK and NYC.

lol i have to admit hongkong has the natural resources to have the best skyline in the work eg the long and straight shores on each side.

shanghai's Lujiazui is like a peninsula, so its very hard to plan

The Kowloon shore isn't very straight, although the Government may remedy that by filling it up again.

also hongkong has high hills behind the water front, so the buildings on the hill makes the skyline looks very great and layered

shanghai is just flat
also too many perspectives

Hancock looks crap there - loving the rest of the pic though, will be even better once the Spire is completed.
