nice pics, but this is NOT the thread for it. it's taking really long to load the last page, even with a fast internet connection. you got at least three other threads where you can post as many pics as you want:

15 best skylines in the world
your personal top 10 skylines
top 25 skylines

thanks in advance.

Look the picture in the middle, there are more than four.

A mega projet that will pair madrid´s skyline to Paris´s la defence.

Sorry dude, but there are only 4 buildings big enough to make a visual impact. That may be considered a skyline to Europeans, but it certainly isn't here. A good start, but Madrid's got a long way to go.

Funny enough, I often read that critique of Torontos non-CBD.

Using that standard you could discount a large segment of Torontos northern skyline filled with ubiquitous 12-22 story buildings which some are keen to make note of.

Ok , so you are saying that dubai has not skyline because there is only one building big enough (burj dubai 800m tall) to make a visual impact (among the rest of 300m tall skyscrapers).
The skyline has nothing to do with visual impact, is something that every single town has.
There are four 250m (750ft) towers among a small group of towers between 100-150meters tall (300-450ft) And that my friend in europe, USA, or the moon is a skyline.
Check this ranking: http://www.emporis.com/en/bu/sk/st/sr/
Madrid`s skyline is over: Detroit, Denver, Boston, Jersey city, Minneapolis, Pittsburg, only in the United states.
Admiting that Madrid has a long way to go.

Dude, it's quite a nice skyline... but this is a WORLDS BEST SKYLINE thread, and sorry but it doesn't even come close to having that title...

My city of 600,000 ranks higher than Madrid... does that mean I should post my city in this thread?

I sure wouldn't mind. The Gold Coast is beautiful.

I prefer quality over quantity... I'd rather 4 fantastic towers over 40 bland boxes.

That said, Madrid is nowhere near the world's best skyline (and neither is the Gold Coast, before anyone accuses me of being parochial).

Well I personally like a skyline which flows, and to me, Madrid is much like Dubai in the way that the buildings don't compliment each other, they clash. Each building when alone may be of quality, but stick them all together and it looks like shit.

Sorry Madrid

^ I actually think Madrid's buildings complement each other perfectly. Agree about Dubai though.
(The 40 bland boxes wasn't a comment about the GC, which after all is my favourite cityscape in Australia.)

I suppose that Emporis list is useful for comparisons between NA, European and Australasian cities (though even that is debatable, as it uses floor count instead of height - favouring residential buildings over office towers), but it's massively incomplete for most Asian and South/Ctrl American cities.

Touche... But if this thread is about the best skyline in the world, put a picture of hong kong and one of new york and close the thread.
Ok, Madrid has only a promising and recent skyline (eventhough it has 1920s skyscrapers)

Then the name should be "Skylines of the World" or something to that effect. Otherwise, who are we kidding?
