Atlanta has never done anything for me. I don't really know why. I've only been once though. I wasn't really that impressed. Maybe if I spent some more time there I'd like it.

Even though Atlantas skyline lacks density..... damn its impressive!
It doesn't really lack density just that the buildings are many separate clusters. But density isn't all that, anyway. Having your buildings set up in separate clusters allows the viewer to see each architectural masterpiece in its entirity. Having one dense skyline with all the towers jammed together hides many great looking buildings.

Anyone who has approached downtown Atlanta from the south on I-75 or I-85 can vouch for the fact that at one point, the skyline is laid out in a great linear line that accentuates the buildings as opposed to the collective. The same can be said approaching from the wests on I-20.

Just like a dense forest, each tree loses itself in the density but when the trees have room, you can say "Oh, that's a cool oak tree!" or "Man look how tall that pine tree is".
