#1: frankfurt, great skyline, good quality of buildings, much potential in the future, good height, skyline in the centere.
#2: paris,very dense, good future potential, but some very strange towers in development,skyline outside the citycentere
#3:warsaw/rotterdam, both need more denseity warsaw in particular, rotterdam has a very nice port-style, great future potential,ugly street level, but that is also changing. very creative design in rotterdam.

Ahh yes you're right, I just looked at the guys thread who took them and he first posted them on June 14th so they're more like 7 weeks old then, my mistake. Just wanted to share as I think they're great shots

I hate La Defense, I was there last July and I didn't really get so impressed... Frankfurt looks much more interesting, and I see Warsaw has a great potential skyscraper's development. Anyway, my top 5 is:

1. Frankfurt.
2. London.
3. Warsaw.
4. Rotterdam.
5. Paris.

I don't even know what are Birmingham, Madrid and Liverpool doing at the poll.

Calm down, I was not bashing you. You did well in posting them, they're great pics indeed.

Something I made a few minutes ago... It makes me think Paris has the most US-like skyline.
