We had really good HDR Pictures of Warsaw in this thread for example. It is nothing against London or the english or HDR, but nearly 100% of Londons HDR Pictures in this thread are absolutley overdone and give the city a really poor looking shape.

This is true! The Warsaw ones were very fine and still had enough sharpening. Those London ones are all blurred...
Sometimes blurring can be nice but only if it is supposed to be blurred and not really effective when showing a skyline far away.

the poll results seem realistic - visually - to me , though this may change with the addition of 5 biggies in ldn over the next 3 years. Paris is doing very interesting some stuff too though i dont know how that affects the overall skyline

Benidorm skyline (not about its pretty or ugly buildings). ONLY skyline (the poll is about skylines, i think):









Benidorm has an excellent skyline. For sure.

So basically you're saying a skyline DOESN'T consist of pretty/ugly buildings?

In this thread, many people don't want to include the skyline of Benidorm because their buildings are ugly. So what I want to emphasize is that the only thing that should be spoken here is precisely whether the skyline of a city is interesting, not whether the buildings that are ugly or pretty. A good listener, few words suffice, right?
