I am biased but love this shot of Edmonton, Alberta at night. Maybe not the best in the world, but can hold its own.

Hong Kong by a long shot. NYC isn't even close. Yes, I have seen both in person at night.

If I had to rank Texas skylines at night it would look like this

1. Dallas
2. Houston
3. Austin
4. Fort Worth
5. San Antonio

Supprisingly, from what I've seen in pictures Corpus as a fairly well lit skyline for a city its size.

I think Hong Kong from across the harbor is pretty untouchable right now.

That's what I'm talking about. All these skylines look good at night, even Baltimore for @#$% sake. How can you make an objective choice?

Could someone change the title of this thread to "Post any pic of a North American skyline taken at night"?

Hehe. It's threads like these that show me how North American centric this forum is. Does anybody even look outside their local subforum anymore?

Let me add my bias opinion.



However the top night skyline in the world goes to Hong Kong.
