It might be better if people would refrain to post every photo with a skyscraper in it. A closeup of a skyscraper makes not a skyline.

For Napoli the best skyline photo IMHO would be this one:

This looks like a great skyline. The rest of the photos just cheapens the positive impact of this one photo.
The distance is just right to present the skyline, not to far away and not to close. The rest of the skyline photos from the other cities should have a similar quality to make them comparable.

Liverpool looks great, too. The famous historic building and the waterfront makes it much more interesting then only quantity and height of the towers.

@ wolwiin: I agree with you, but I think one or two photo's that can really show the quality of the buildings of that specific skyline, helps you give a good image.
The extra photos should contain at least several buildings of course.

But like you, I hate it when people just show too many pics that don't have anything to do with a skyline. I have had an argument over it several pages back.
True, GENIUS LOCI showed a bit too much pics of Napels, but the most of 'em were great and small in size.

Napoli is quite impressive, the towers stand out nicely, present good design and create a hub, kinda "little Frankfurt"

Genova on the other hand is low and spread out. Too postmodernistic if you ask me.

Vilnius towers have very good design and materials, skyline is young so luckily posmodernism didnt touch it, although its quite low in height and in number, The towers are thin so it optically enhances their height and above all they create good skyline.

Kyiv has got a lot of towers, although they are spread out all over the city and there are many ulgy residentials(imo), but as I can see many modern towers are going up, so its gonna change. It definetely needs a hub.

Most skylines are average at best but ok thats why its 2nd tier

Based on the last pics of Naples I would vote for Napels.
In a nice skyline I want to see some nice clean, modern skyscrapers and no ugly appartment buildings + it has to be concentrated and has to stand out over the city.
From this list I think only Napels (Brussels or Vienna too if they had some more height in the skyline) fulfill these criteria. The other cities' skylines are:
OR spread out (Amsterdam)
OR too much ugly (appartment)buildings (birmingham)
OR it doesn't stand out much (Brussels + Vienna)
OR no cohesion/organization in the skyline (Liverpool).
The Hague is quite nice too with some nice modern buildings. Some of those pics remind me a bit of Boston.

Brussels is not bad but miss height. Brussels isn't mentionned a lot when it's about (2nd tier) skylines so I'll post some pics.

Brussels

I always thought Brussels skyline was underrated
Another city in Europe with a largely underrated skyline is IMO Vienna
