I know what you mean. In London the tall buildings pop out of the city-scape everywhere, in Frankfurt and Rotterdam the tall buildings clearly mark the city centre but in Paris the group looks alien something quite apart from the rest of the city, neither marking its centre or a part of its soul. While it forms a good cluster its just a little too jarring for my taste.

A very interesting and not often seen angle. A few years later we should be able to see The Shard tower on the right side. That will be quite a view then.

Yep, it's Madrid. And the four big girls in the background.

Maybe because not everyone has the same opinion/taste that you have?!

Wow, nice airport but that is the strangest skyline of the major European cities, why oh why did they do it like that? they should have made a cluster with variety in height, this just doesn't work.

WINNER, this is the best picture on this thread thus far. Frankfurt has the modern talls but that just reaks of historic megacity.

Rolf. Another artificial, strange looking HDR telelens shot showing some diffuse London silhouette. How could this possibly be the best picture in this thread? Even those 2 ones before on this page are better off.

It captures the very essense of the city, i don't care if the pic has been shopped in some way, it shows 10K of solid megacity with skyscrapers, cranes, spires and domes. This is something that only a few cities in the world can boast, if you want "skyline", the silhouette is what makes it perfect.
