Look at everyone elses post theyve done the same, im giving them a background to the city because no one has posted out of leeds on here apart from me and clarence docks needs a photo like that because its not seen on the Leeds skyline its just like the salford quays for manchester

My favs:

1. Amsterdam.
2. Vilnius
3. Liverpool

Wasn't to impressed with Berlin's skyline when I went, although I loved the dominating TV tower from pretty much every part of the city, and Potzdamer platz is amazing.
Liverpool only looks good on the skyline pictures becuase theyve been photo shopped to hell,

We've got loads of outstanding buildings that don't appear on our skyline and I bet others do too but they don't get posted on skyline threads.Proper stone buildings which are much better than you're average plastic or glass towers.

No because I don't believe it's the best second tier European skyline and that would be dishonest of me,it's certainly up there though.

I wouldn't want to falsify the vote now would I.

There are some cities, like Vilnius, that are not on the list but should be there.

While i live in Leeds i can honestly say Leeds doesn't have the best skyline. Leeds definatley is one of the better cities in the UK for Skyline and probably in the top 5 in the UK, but comparing Leeds to some of the cities in Europe is a different ball game.

The Hague wins this title. And if it doesn't () it will certainly do in 2 to 3 years when about 6 new highrises are completed.
