I love how our skyline can change from different angles, and I have always been partial to this view of Philadelphia:

Pittsburgh, PA - West End Overlook


-I posted every skyline photo I had, and then realized The mod said only one per post. So Pittsburgh is what I want to keep as it is my favorite skyline from my very biased opinion.

When in Miami, try to take a drive across the Rickenbacker Causeway heading out to Key Biscayne. It affords the best views of the downtown Miami.

Florida's Gold Coast

Sunny Isles Beach just north of Miami Beach has the second largest skyline in Florida and is still growing. Hallandale Beach to the north of that in this photo has the tallest building in Broward County. Beyond to the north is Hollywood Beach and Fort Lauderdale Beach.

Omaha has a great looking little cluster. As does Des Moines. And Oklahoma City too. Some under rated gems in the plains IMO.

I was a huge fan of that museum's (?) design but why such a harsh blue on top? not really the place to talk about it, but I forgot the name so I can't look up the thread.

anyways, some shameless self promoting of my photography and the city I love the most!

The only issue with this view is you miss out on possibly the 2 most important buildings in Liberty 1 and 2.

I love seeing Pittsburgh photos. I was there for the first time this past weekend. What a lovely city with a really fantastic and lively downtown. The rivers and all the bridges are really amazing.

I've always loved this view of downtown Tulsa from the west bank of the Arkansas River
