it's a clean misbelief to assume that big ass skylines are automatically trademaks of top quality cities.
I second that.

In my opinion London is #1 in this top. Followed by Frankfurt, Paris, Madrid and Warsaw

Frankfurt imo. But London is definitely playing catch up - especially in terms of quantity.

The Landmark Towers add alot to the Canary Wharf looking from far away... my only problem with them is their architectural quality. A bit like 'back to the 70's' kinda project. As if the only thing they were looking at is how to make it as simple and as cheap as possible. Same applies to Pan Peninsula, btw.

Ok, so where and when are you going to post that?! Can't wait to see! I always wanted to get to Frankfurt car show but somehow never found time for that.

I still don't know whether I post them or not. This is much work scaling and adjusting for no clicks and comments at all!

Oh no, you suck!
but I guess it's fair enough... I know what it takes to process hundreds of photos... indeed a time-consuming business.
