Which of the two city skylines, Atlanta, Georgia or Chicago, Illinois, do you feel is most impressive in overall qualities (natrual setting, color, shape of buildings, variety of architecture, etc.). With this said, this is purely a skyline competition and not a "my city is better than yours" kinda of thread. Also, feel free to post images of the two cities.

If we were simply measuring size, then naturally Chicago would dominate this. However, I feel as if Atlanta could conceivably trump Chicago if and when its three distinctive skyline areas ever merge to form one mega-skyline. Atlanta's metropolitan area has been one of the fastest-growing in the nation for a number of years now, and hopefully as more of these residents tire of the lame suburbs and invest in the city proper developers will follow suit by building more high-rises to cater to them.

Although Chicago has the second largest collection of buildings in the U.S. and a massive skyline, to me it's bland when compared to Atlanta.

Not even close. Sorry Atl supporters, but I don't think it ever will be.

Sure and Pueblo's skyline could top Atlanta's too, you never know Trump might decide to build a 80 story sky scraper in Pueblo and cause many more to be built!

Atlanta does have some cool buildings, but lets be more realistic, especially when Chicago has about 1,100 highrises whereas Atlanta has about 250. I've been to both cities and there is no way Chicago is bland.

Yes, Chicago does have more buildings, but like the Grand Canyon (which is also very large) is not the most impressive spectacle in the world.
