Yes, of course:



Let's count...1, 2, 3...at least 11 just in this pic. I can tell you there are a few more in the city and in the next years there will be more to come (some of them could be even taller that those 'only 4 big towers' you cite). I agree that Madrid's skyline is not yet as good as the cities in this poll (mainly because of the lack of density) but I can assure you it will soon catch up. But please, inform yourself before writing that biased post.

Yup 4 towers thats all i see



in a not so cloudy day



But to be honest, i don't really care if Madrid is not on the poll. I will always post the pictures here. Is what i been doing all along sense i joined the forums and the thread had 3 other cities from england. This is the 3rd time i noticed the cities change in the poll.

Im sure there is people that will enjoy the pictures.

Polls don't mean anything here by the way, most people vote for their own country anyways. So lets stop the sillyness and get back to sharing beutifull pictures of our cities. (sorry for my english)

If so, Warszawa would take the crown in this poll.

it was here I think, but it's nice.

Unfortunately this is "magic of angle" type photo Buildings on the right (blue-green Intraco and North Gate) form northern cluster that is nearly 3km from city centre

Een paar verse exemplaren!
Zie ook op de 2e foto hoe ze weer eens lekker aan het fikken zijn bij Shell Pernis. Als het een beetje bewolkt is, dan heeft de halve stad een oranje gloed boven zich door die enorme vlammen daar.
