Bah, signature skylines went out of style in the first half of the 20th century. Give me my sprawling non-place urban field please!

western most point of cherry beach looking into Toronto is one of my favorites. For some reason everytime I see the TO skiline they take it in from to close ignoring a nice little chunk of water.

But I always did like the skyline from most directions.

Vancouver's beauty is not in it's skyline. Most of the tallish buildings in vancouver are pretty ugly actually. It's the mountains and ocean that surround it and I don't think that's what this list is about.

Vancouver is specatcular though. I love flying in there when they circle around and land over the water.

Of all the pics, the one of Toronto's looks the worst. But I've always found shots taken from Cherry Beach/Docks or uptown-facing-south vantage points to flatter our skyline more.

The shots of Tokyo and Hong Kong are breathtaking/insane.

I thought there was a rule that all skyline shots had to be taken at night.... toronto's waterfront blows in daylight, we look so..... '86.

Toronto is a pretty badass skyline.. This was taken from the dock of the Rochester ferry.. I would say that New York is the best though..

What about Regina?

It kicks Shanghai's ass in my books. This list seems rigged and places too much emphasis on grandeur, beauty, and architecture.

i think dubai's is the most startling, while singapore is the most striking. i love singapore's skyline the most.

Re: Dubai



Like the guy mentions on his site, the pace of development is crazy. The "small" building to the very right of the picture (the Dubai World Trade Centre) was all through the 90's and upto '98 the tallest building in Dubai (and the UAE as a whole) It had 52 floors if I'm not mistaken.

It looks smaller than it should, because it's further away than the other buildings, but still crazy to see it look so small.

Overlooking the city at night from the top of Victoria Peak is amazing. Shanghai is pretty cool too...I wish I had my pics to show.
