I prefer Atlanta's based on its architectural diversity, but gotta give the prize to Miami, based on its sheer mass. Yeah, I know, they are mostly condos, which is kinda lame, but the appearance of the skyline from Biscayne Bay is impressive.

I'll admit I use a prodigious amount of Youtube videos as well as superfluous,but I do that because Miami just a few years ago had a building boom second only to Dubai in the world,so people are not familiar with the new Miami and they haven't stop building yet. I have a fascination for this beautiful city as I love the way Biscayne Bay enhances the Miami skyline and for the mega-palm trees and sunshine and clean air.

I picked Miami, while Atlanta's is nice, I prefer a larger skyline over a skyline that only has a couple of tall buildings. That could be argued as well though because I'm sure Atlanta has a decent amount of "hidden gems" but this is about the skyline.

People need to post more pictures of both cities I not even going to try
The problem with skylines like LA, Houston, Atlanta etc. is that they are so spread out. Sure they might be big if you look at them from VERY far away and can see all of the CBD's, but when you look at skylines like Manhattan, Chicago, and Miami you see one core skyline of dense buildings.

Why does everybody always talk down about Miami's condo's, you know Miami's condo's downtown are just like Chicago's and New York's many apartments downtown too Miami's just look more modern. Miami in the last couple of years was "manhattanized" because there is no more room to build out so you have to build up, pretty much how New York was built. When all of those condo's get filled up Miami is going to be a "real city" where people work AND live downtown instead of just working and then driving back out into the suburbs to live.
