Is it worth an argument over? Seriously. How childish. I merely copied someone elses post. No worse then Xaviers. You guys need to relax if that concerns you on a sunday afternoon.

Instead of hundred pictures per page Id like to see 30-40 actual skyline pics.
Endless flow of pictures make me forget at what city i am currently looking, all mix up.

@ Ecological: Ok, let me put it in another way. Would you please stop harassing me with offtopic pictures?
No serious, you're right when you say it isn't worth an argument. It was meant as constructive criticism. And you're not the only one that's slightly spamming threads (don't know how else to say). I did it too in the past, a lot of people here did in some sort of way. And I also received criticism, it's just what you do with it. (sorry for my English)

Reason why I chose The Hague:

^I agree with you, Amsterdam and The Hague are the best 2. Because of the density and urbanity.

I'd say Vienna is surprisingly good. I also like Birmingham and Liverpool. The problem of Amsterdam is that the city has 4 clusters, which makes the skyline looking spread out and is difficult to catch in one photo. If all the towers were put in one place, it would be one of the best European skylines.

Unfortunately I can't find any decent pictures of Bremen's city center. None of Oldenburg, either. Now that we have that new LzO Headquarter, we almost have something resembling a skyline.

The "Fernsehturm" is a big plus for Berlin.
But I chose Vienna.

Zuidas A'dam is amazing for sure but i have a disappointment about this new part of town: the limitation of the height which will never climb above 100 meters because of the nearby airport. that's so a shame when u look to the quality of the design...

That's true, but other clusters in Amsterdam are allowed to build much higher. Teleport for example doesn't have height limitations. And Zuidas might become higher eventually, if the dok-project gets go-ahead.
