not to me but thats just my opinion. I think there are far more deserving skylines.

IMO I would break it down to the contenders; New York City, Chicago, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Dubai (on its way), Toronto (totally underrated as one of the worlds greatest), and Singapore (so classy).

For Iconism; London, Sydney, Tokyo, Los Angeles, Paris/La Defense

Up and comers; Guangzhou, Beijing, Dubai (but already contending), Doha, Moscow, Jakarta, Kuala Lumpur.

This is just my opinion, if Jakarta to you, is one of the best then shoot thats up to you.


***Also fix your signature Melvin that is way to big a signature, either lower the font size or remove some of the script****

Because of the Burj Duba´, it needs a dozen 500m+ now. This tower is not really sized to be part of a skyline, even a supertall skyline. It just puts the other skyscrapers into shame. Maybe Duba´ skyline would be more impressive without it.

Not the most 'flash' picture in the world, but very iconic. They've knocked down the one in Central, and despite early skepticism, the new Central Star Ferry Pier does look fair (still a little too Disney for my liking mind - perhaps it will age well), I really hope they never knock this one down.

And another Devil's Hill/Peak shot.



Some 'regular' angles:

That is my opinion too. Burj Dubai actually make the skyline less impresive.

don't know if is the best comparison, but:
Is like having 10 really cute girls in the neighborhood, and then a supermodel move in. Then, u dont have 11 beautiful girls, but one very beautiful and 10 meaningless.

Dubai, in the race to break records, really made somme mistakes. That supertall block in Marina is the worse.
