That mega-picture of London is amazing. What a beautiful shot of this really world city! The Rotterdam Skyline is very impressive for a city of its size (population 580.000+, metropolitan area 1.300.000 population!).

these images are already posted in your other thread , no reason to post them twice.

other than that, this thread is not closed why a second one? you're also able to spam this thread here with your rotterdam pics on a daily basis like in your other thread.

anyways, just a friendly side note, as usual

The different levels of heigth in the terrain where Madrid sits, really affects the skyline, specially in the AZCA area. The four giants don't help either, they really dwarft everything else.

Thanx for the pics everyone, sadly came to admit that my favorite skyline from a long distance is Benidor 0_0.

But at a closer distance, Frankfurt makes the best skyline counting quality density and heigth. Followed by France for its amazing density. Then Warsaw, London and Madrid follow in tie because of some of their iconic scrapers and heigth. Now, Rotterdam has a nice skyline for the heigth of its buildings, but i can't place it any higher due to my personal taste, I prefer glass towers; still very impresive. Hope it gets a couple of nice glass towers in the future I'm sure it will clime on my list. All other cities follow behind.

Then post them in the other thread. There is a new thread because this thread excluded Rotterdam in it's poll and included cities with almost no skyline.
