Why not? A massive skyline it's not a good skyline. The skyline of santiago it's small but cute and with an awesome backdrop.

What I mean is we don't need a million pictures. A few is OK, but otherwise everyone will post pictures and not even bother ranking. Happens in a lot of threads

yeah i hate that, most forumers post random pics of their (favourite) city in every possible thread they can find. it's like they want to say: "look, here! this is my city! it's the best! it has such a great skyline! just look! you haven't had enough? no problem, i'll post another 10 pics. what, how can you say you don't like my city? here have another 10 pics!!" and so on ...

I just wanted to put some photos. I think 2 photos it's ok ? ...I think some just think we can put photos of the cities most recognized and if we put pictures of cities less recognized is a sin. In South America there are some cities have better skylines than those listed above as Buenos Aires .

For me the best skylines are:

1-New York
2-Honk Kong
3-Chicago
4-Sydney
5-Toronto

nah, what you did is totally ok, my post wasn't directed to you. i was just complaining about the forumers in here whose main hobby is flooding several threads with random pics. it's really annoying.

Wow! There are so many nice and impressive skylines around the world that it is really hard to rate them. One can say that NYC, Hong Kong, Shanghai and Chicago are a class of their own. But outside them it is damn hard. Only considering the emerging skylines like Bangkok, Seoul, Dubai, Jakarta, Makati, about a myriad of Chinese cities, Taipeh, Sydney, Melbourne, North America, Moscow,...
