Melvin you actually disrupt this thread when you post these pictures. I get it if it is a matter of opinion and if you truely think that picture is the World's Greatest then I'm sorry for trampling. Still we kind of like to reserve this thread for those pictures that either have the potential to or do wow us all to some extent. I just don't think the above skyline or shot in particular is wow factor. I think you would be alone in thinking Bandung has the world's greatest skyline (architecturally speaking) and that even though it may be a nice shot and just a picture it does take away from the thread seeing as anyone can post a picture on the countless threads that may ask for them, this,however, is not that thread.....I think I've just gone redundant........still.

It's nice to post something different in a while though.

Here's a pic I took from my hotel bedroom in Bangkok.



The actual skyline extends far beyond this, so it's hard to really capture the Bangkok skyline. But I tried.

Was this your first trial on HDR? Get the full version for only 90$ and get rid of the Watermarks! However, Bangkok looks great!!!

Nope, not my first. Probably not more than my 10th though.

And I'm a cheap arse. :P

its hard to say which one's the best. There are just too many factors. NY is really nice in its own way, but so are HK, chicago and shanghai.

The best right now is prolly Shanghai, but in a few years prolly Dubai, depending on how those gigantic buildings turn out.

Other cities may one day grow taller and bigger than New York, but I'll probably always love it most. It looks finished and lacking for nothing.

It is a stunning photo. Kudos to you Kev. It was most likely taken from his office on one of the top floors of the Aon building 1,136' tall.

(1) PAris (not really a skyscraper heaven but it's the most recognizable skyline, thanks to the Eiffel Tower)
(2) New York (a very close second)
(3) HK (a very close third)

*It may lack an iconic structure but I do love the Metro Manila skyline too.

That's exactly right, gia. Here's another one. We're about to move so I really have to hit these views hard in the coming months.
