Very impressive mass of cranes. Maybe in 5-10 years Dubai will be able to be a contender for the best skyline. Now it is a skyline under construction.

Minneapolis
taken by me

Population 370K(city proper), 3.2 mln(metro). It came no. 17 in the world I recall at the time the ssc portals were still up, thus becoming the smallest city in the top 20.

it's nice, but it's not the best one. IMO Seattle has better one. I personally like HK and Chicago.

Honestly though, this is a thread for the ONE OF THE BEST skylines, i mean, Minneapolis's skyline is great and all but it's nowhere NEAR one of the BEST. So like someone above said: it just doesnt qualify as a contender for world's best.

Sure it is, you are being so judgmental for no reason right now! It is best for me because unlike imaginary Hong Kong or Shanghai, I can enjoy this wonderful skyline everyday while gulping down my cup of morning coffee and while walking to my work, and watch it as it faints away and disappears in the evening twilight. Neither of the mentioned cities make their existence in my daily surroundings. Therefore, it seems irrational to me to even think why would anyone praise a city, let alone a skyline, they have never even been to.

Well, with a name like that it should probably qualify as worl'd best skyline among mini polises.

this is not a skyline

it is a nice picture, a great collection of highrises and scrapers... but in skyline bulidings must project aganist the sky... loking at them from aboove does not make a skyline

Would I be forever embarrassed, if I allow myself to post another photo of little Minnie?

Haha yeah right, like somebody could just post pictures of, say, Washington DC, and say it's one of the best skyline in the world just because he lives there and liked the skyline, please...

Well, guess that's the thing with internet, you gotta respect everyone's opinions, no matter how absurd.

Hey not like I'm trying to rob anyone of their favorite skyline fetish thing or anything of that nature. Get over yourself.

In that case Hong Kong does not have the skyline, what with the mountains and all.
