I don't think Rotterdam has the best skyline, but I'm sure it's much better than Madrid skyline.

My list:
1. Frankfurt
2. Parijs
3. Rotterdam
4. London
5. Warschau

Madrid isn't even in the poll, so showing pictures of this city is redundant. Maybe someone could create a poll about 'Best 3rd skyline of Europe', especially for Madrid.

Now vote for Rotterdam

Benidorm, it's for me so much better than some cities in this top 5 with 27 buildings over 100 metres...

Would be nice to see such pics of London just as NORMAL shots and not only as spoiled HDR monters...

I think the same. xspecially this shot is a nice angle. So I tried to Re-HDR the image a bit. Unfortunatly the foreground was too destroyed. So I cut the image a bit. Perhaps still to much cotrast here and too blue, but I don't have more time to save London. I think it a job of the people, who share the London pictures with us to stop Phostoshop violation to one of Europes most beautiful cities.

Ehh??
I think the HDR shot is awesome and a nice change in between all the unedited photo's, and it shows the skyline of London from a really nice angle

the shot is awesome, this is true. The filter is used foolish and amateurish. I don't have something angainst post editing, I even support it. If it is done good and the picture still looks "real" This is not a thread about a competiotion, who can edit the pictures worse. So please stop sharing those ugly pictures.

Looks much better and more natural. Now we can all imagine what London looks like from this angle and not how a colour blind drunken hobo might see it!
If you want to see real good HDR images, there are some of Chicago around. They are awesome!

I don't really get the problem with having a couple of photoshoped London pics amongst the many many unaltered images. Just adds a bit of variety, especially when we've seen pretty much every possible angle of all the cities in the poll.

It is not about having HDRs, it is about bad and poorly done ones! A good HDR is always welcome!
