a second highrise like the main plaza or some kind of retro-style art deco building would be a nice addition for frankfurts downtown area.

nice frankfurt pictures, mostly. Don't like the HDR-filtered. Today it's just a photoshop tool, to compensate the lack of someones photography skills...

I avoided pretty much everything that looked like HDR. It annoys me as well.

Goddamn, Erbse... anything else compared to those Frankfurt pics just sucks!

It's not just THE best in EU/Europe... it's one of the best in the world.

What about Warsaw and Paris mate? Think there are even more pics of these 2 cities.
Why don't you as a Brit post some pictures of London?

I say: "Keep the pics coming"!!!

Every time I get bored over this thread. Only are hundreds of photos of Rotterdam (where most of the buildings are horrible), and Frankfurt. xlchris strives bombarded with the same photos of Rotterdam again and again, like a mega-full of spectacular skyscrapers, and the only truth is that it is a city full of modern commies. It's my impression. Of course, not to put more pictures of the dutch city, will become the European reference, which is Frankfurt, followed by Paris, London and Warsaw.


Greetings

Not to mention the crack and heroin hole of Valencia. Never seen so much junkies as in Valencia. That is the truth. That is even worse as the commies of Rotterdam. That is my impression.

Sorry...

I agree and if you don't like the pics or you don't want to see them. You better stay away from this thread.
The more pics, the better.

Not the best tool in the box, but anyway I think it is worth mentioning since there have been posted numerous worse skylines than that of Essen:





Some Frankfurt skylines from other angles, mainly from far away or from the metro region:





And Berlin:

Thanks Skyline! Essen isn't that bad at all. It could need some fresh highlight, just as the RWE tower.
Something like the ARAG tower in Düsseldorf would fit pretty well.
