Here's a really good shot by kcmo of the downtown ATL skyline (with midtown in the background) from the Atlanta photos thread. He's a really good photographer! This is one of my favorites.

I think Uptown Charlotte skyline is more comparable to Buckhead.

I think Buckhead has too many residential towers as a proportion of its overall skyline to be a better comparison. Midtown is probably the best comparison.

This is quite an impressive angle of the skyline. I think this is right North Davidson. Charlotte's skyline is quite impressive, but I think Atlanta's edges out. But I'm proud of my city's growth.

Charlotte has one of the best skylines in this country.
