Baboulinet, you posted the worst possible picture of Canary Wharf just to prove a point that isn't true.
I post the first pic that i found in google .

. As I and others said, the cluster has changed dramatically since then, and One Canada Square is more iconic than anything La Defense can offer. Yeah, La Defense is bigger, but it is just a whole load of chunky midrises, creating a very flat skyline.
That's just your opinion , not the opinion of everybody , look at the poll ...
Now stop , please .image hosted on flickr

Exactly! It's my own opinion! So why the hell did you go and question it in the first place?

That's fine. We're OK now, then?
I like Paris's skyline as well, just to let you know. I was there only recently and was very impressed. But I do think it needs a bit of improvement, the new towers like Tour Generali should do the trick.

The only thing that I don't like about Madrid's 4 new towers is their disposal on the terrain. They're very detached from each other.

Some Frankfurt photos missing! Do you want to urge me to start a new series, eh? I'm serious! Ich scherze nicht!

@ xlchris
The Rotterdam pics now are really getting a bit annoying... The last ones you posted are very dull too. And they just show Rotterdam is FAR from being the best European skyline. And spamming pictures doesn't make it any better.

Uhm, what about the La Defense pictures, I find them getting pretty boring as well. Always the same angle.
