Skyline Pictures

I am surprised there isn't a thread dedicated strictly to Skylines yet. So here I go. I will start off with what I am sure is a relatively underwhelming skyline compared to what I will hopefully see. But it is a start.

I took this last night during a walk.

Winnipeg, MB.

Ok, we'll give it a try.

With two conditions please...

One pic per post, one post per member.



That means you get to pick one city to rep and one pic to do it with. Choose wisely!

The moment thread devolves into a city vs city pissing match, the thread goes away.

Please make sure to properly credit all photos by posting the photographer's name when available with a link to the website page where you found them. If you cannot do that, then please only post a link to them.

If you've posted any photos on the forum recently that are not your own and you did not follow the rules above, please go back and edit your post or it will be deleted.

Probably one of my favorite Philadelphia shots of the skyline.. it doesn't get all of it, and personally I like seeing the gorgeous Cira Center in the skyline shot, but it's a great photo regardless.

One of the best I've ever seen. I've linked to this photo before because I love it so.

Toronto

Note the tall building in the middle of the skyline (Aura) was editted in, it's still under construction, the image shows how tall it will be when completed.

I hate those threads with 5 pics per post. This is more MY style.

I'm gonna guess that the Toronto pic was taken from Humber Bay park.
