I'm not saying Liverpools the best, but we have a nice skyline/waterfront

@all
If you don't know, what you are doing STOP to try to use photoshop or simular programs to improve your pictures, or ask someone, who knows what he/she does. It's so annoying, see that foolish crap in every second post! Sorry, if someone feels attacked now, but thats a point that has to be mentioned.

The picture with the rain over Madird is great fpr example and it seems to be unetited.

Madrid's skyline is still very unbalanced but at least a lot better than it used to be.

Is that Madrid has a great image. The downside is that they are scattered buildings. If they were all gathered in one cluster, would certainly be among one of the best skyline in the EU, ahead, of course, in Warsaw or Rotterdam. Anyway, we'll have to wait to begin to take shape Operation Chamartin, which is expecting many more than 100m buildings and some of more than 200m. We'll see.

However, Madrid's main problem is that their high-rise buildings stand out less than other cities because they are surrounded by other buildings, 14, 15, 16 or more floors, making it look more complicated than those of Paris or Frankfurt, where clusters are almost alone, with no large buildings that hide it. Nevertheless, Madrid is still far from these two cities, though he is far above that of cities like Liverpool or Birmingham, and I daresay that the Rotterdam, which in spite of looking very well, its tallest building would be the sixth in Madrid (although I think that will change soon). In any event, Rotterdam is very good.

It did change and now there are "only" 4 buildings higher in Madrid.

Greetings: I am a
retired attorney. A few years ago a man came to me with a letter. He
asked me to verify the fact that this was legal to do. I told him I
would review it and get back to him. When I first read the letter my
client brought me, I thought it was some "off-the-wall" idea to
make money. A week and a half later we met in my office to discuss the
issue. I told him the letter he originally brought me was not 100%
legal. My client then asked me to alter it to make it perfectly legal.
I asked him to make one small change in the letter. I was still curious
about the letter, so he explained to me how it works. I thought it
seemed like a long shot, so I decided against participating. But before
my client left, I asked him to keep me updated on his results. About
two months later, he called me to tell me he had received over $800,000
in cash. I didn't believe him, so he asked me to try this idea and find
out for myself. I thought about it for a couple of days and decided I
really didn't have anything to lose, so I asked him for a copy of the
letters. I followed the instructions exactly, mailed 200 copies, and
sure enough, the money started coming in! It arrived slowly at first,
but it kept coming. I kept a precise record of the earnings, and in the
end, it totaled $978,493! I could hardly believe it. I met with my
friend for lunch to find out exactly how it worked. He told me there
are quite a few similar letters around, but this one is different
because there are six names at the end of the letter, not five like
some others. This fact alone results in your name being in far more
returns. The other fact was the help I gave him, making sure the whole
thing was legal, since no one wants to take the risk of doing something
illegal. By now you are surely curious to know what small changes to
make. If you sent a letter like this one out, in order to be completely
legal, you must actually sell something in order to receive a dollar in
return. So when you send a dollar to each of the names on the list, you
must include these words: "PLEASE PUT ME ON YOUR MAILING LIST" and
include your name and address. This is the key to the program. The item
you will receive for the dollar you sent to the six people below is the
letter. At the time I first tried this idea, I was earning a good
living as a lawyer. But everyone in the legal profession will tell you
there is a lot of stress that comes with the job. I told myself if
things worked out, I would retired from my practice and play golf. I
decided to try the letter again, but this time I sent 500 copies. Three
months later, I had totaled $2,341,178! : Here are a few reasons a
person might give for not trying this program: Some people think they
can never make a lot of money with anything this simple. Some are
afraid they will be ridiculed for trying. Some dream of large sums of
money, but do nothing to actually achieve it. Some are just plain lazy.
Some are afraid of losing their investment. They think this program is
designed to beat them out of a few dollars. The system works if you
just try it. But you must follow the simple instructions exactly, and
in less than three months, you will receive $800,000 GUARANTEED! Keep
what you are doing to yourself for awhile. Many will tell you it won't
work and will try to talk you out of your dreams. Let them know of your
success after it works. LETTERS FROM PARTICIPANTS IN THIS PROGRAM: My
name is David Rhodes. In 1992 my car was repossessed and bill
collectors were housing my. I was laid off and my unemployment ran out.
In October of 1992, I received a letter telling me how to earn $800,000
anytime I wanted. Of course, I was skeptical. But because I was so
desperate and virtually had nothing to lose, I gave it a try. In
January 1993, my family and I went on a 10-day cruise. The next month I
bought a brand new Mercedes with cash! I am currently building a home
in Virginia and I will never have to work again. This money program
really works perfectly every time. I have never failed to receive less
than $500,000. This is a legitimate, money-making opportunity. It does
not require you to sell anything or to come in contact with people. And
, best of all, you only leave the house to mail the letters. If you
have always believed that someday you would get the lucky break, then
simply follow the instructions and make dreams come true. Larry
McMahon, Norfolk, VA Six months ago, I received this letter and ignored
it. Five more came within a period of time and I ignored them also. I
was tempted, but I was convinced that they were just a Hoax. After
three weeks of deliberating, I decided to give it a try (not expecting
much). Two weeks went by and nothing happened. The fourth week was
unbelievable! I can't say I received $800,000 but I received $400,000.
For the first time in years, I am debt free. I am doing this again,
only this time starting with 500 posts. I strongly recommend that you
follow the instructions exactly as outlined in this letter. :
INSTRUCTIONS 1. Immediately send $1.00 to each of the six people on the
list at the end of this letter. Wrap the dollar bill in a note saying
"Please add me to your mailing list" and include your name and
address. 2. Copy this letter. You do not have to type it 200 times.
Simply place your cursor at the top of the page, hold it and drag it
all the way down to the end of the letter. Then click on "edit" and
select "copy". Now open up a notepad file on your computer and put the
cursor at the top of the page in the notepad, click on 'edit' and then
select 'paste' it will copy the letter for you onto your computer. 3.
Remove the name next to the #1 on the list and move the rest of the
names up one position (#2 becomes #1, #3 becomes #2, etc.....) Then
place your name in the #6 position. Then save it, make sure it is saved
as a txt. file. 4. When you have completed the instructions, take this
letter and then go to (Google,Yahoo...) and type in "Making Money
Message Board" or "post message" and start posting your copy to
200 message boards or more, this is only the minimum, you can post as
much as you like...The more copies you send the better the results.
Keep a copy of this letter so you can use it a second time. Post it out
again in six months, but Post it with the addresses you receive with
each dollar. It will work better the second time. NOTE: This service is
100% legal - (Refer to title 18 section 1302 of the U.S. Postal &
lottery laws) HOW IT WORKS? When you send out 200 Posts, it is
estimated that at least 15 people will respond and send you a $1.00.
($15.00) Those 15 will Post 200 Posts each and 225 (15x15=225) people
send you $1.00 ($225.00) Those 225 people Post 200 Posts each and 3,375
(225x15=3375) people send you $1.00 ($3,375.00) Those 3,375 post 200
posts each and 50,625 (3375x15=50625) people send you $1.00
($50,625.00) Those 50,625 post 200 posts each and 759,375
(50625x15=759,375) people send you $1.00 ($759,375) At this point your
name will drop off the list, but so far you have received around
$800,000. P.S. When your money begins to come in, give the first 10% to
charity with spirit and share a good fortune! windell edwards 3538 midwood rd rockhill sc. 29730. sheree johnson 5438 norfolk, va 67543. quentin royce 7813 rockridge rd. mephis, tn 89854. brad robillard 5455 neptune ln. dayton,oh 93785. curti wright 601 #1 lamar ave. charlotte nc. 28204.
This really, really
works, I tried it once and I'm doing it again, first to be honest I
only posted 145 posts and I didn't received a lot only 6,689.00$ in 3
months, at least this means that it really works ,so this time I'm
posting 604 posts and I've got so far in 2 month 15,640.00$ this is
really like a dream come true. So go on and try it trust me you've got
nothing to lose. Important tip - Cover money by paper fully by which it
can not been seen in light to avoid theft. [
