They do look alike but like I said, it all depends on where the shot is taken. Look at these two pictures. You really can't get more similar than this.

You can get a shot of any semi-tropical city and find similarities when you have ocean and a far shot that washes out the colors. When you see it in person, at a closer shot, or have some type of height perspective there is a clear difference.

Regardless of that, they still look very similar. Height really doesn't mean anything. The proportion looks right in both pictures.

Miami should get an exemption from the FAA and build a 1500 footer. something that really towers over the city, and is unmistakable.
