No doubt both are phenomenal skylines. Very different yet both great in their own ways. They do the West Coast proud!

Seattle, I feel, has more buildings that stand out than San Francisco has. As far as truly iconic structures, Seattle has two, the Space Needle and the Columbia Center, whereas SF only has the Trans-America Pyramid (which IS pretty damn cool.)

I think SF, but really do like Seattle and it's sky-line, just isnt the same scale as SF. Both are great to visit and have a great downtown feel

Yeah SEA is really right there behind SF for me,if I was from SEA and grew up on it than it might be my number 1,one of the top skylines in the country regardless though.

I love them both. Great pics of San Francisco by the way. Here in Seattle our skyline has really grown since I've been here.
