Oh, I didn't know that. There are 3 sizes larger than the one I used, but I get your point. I just get tired of looking at regular text sometimes, and tried to make it look sharper.

I agree with you! Sydney has the right setting, good buildings, and a reasonable quantity, mostly concentrated in one area. This makes it overall very esthetic and well-organized looking.
Very nice photos, BTW!

Why the hell would Singapore be the best.

I choose Sydney. Beautiful pristine location, and great quality buildings.

Singapore looks great it keeps getting better. Singapore is probably one of the most balance skyline in Asia.

Agreed with Sydney, among cities with relatively smaller skylines, Sydney and San Francisco are among the best in the world

I think you should respect people's onions people can chose what they like best but you should not criticize people choices without any explanations. Such as the quote below. At least explain why Singapore is not the best. What it lack or what con does it have.

[1]Dubai, UAE
[2]Shanghai, China
[3]Hong Kong, China
[4]Chicago, USA
[5]New York City, USA

these are my top 5 best skyline. for me, sydney skyline is overrated and not in the top ten because it does not have 2 or 3 supertalls eventhough it is dense and nice. I think in the future, most of asian city will be in top 10.
