Chicago looks stunning, those new talls really stand out in that shot. What part of St. Louis is that? Very impressive shot of STL, looks very dense and some decent height in that shot for not being CBD towers.

Milwaukee, yeesh please get going on those proposals that skyline needs to get stepped up big time. Looks more like Grand Rapids or even Des Moines from that angle.

to be fair to milwaukee, that's only one very small section of the skyline, but i wanted a shot that highlighted their spectacular saarinen/calatrava art museum.

here's a full pano so you get the idea. the physical area of downtown Milwaukee is quite large for a city its size, so the skyline is pretty pulled-apart. and yes, it could definitely use more height, which is already on the way.

Calgary is a much bigger city than I always though it was! Wow, just made my list of places to definitely go!

I'm loving that Chicago picture too!

It's probably only as big as you thought it was, it just happens to look a lot bigger than it really is!
