Imo, the best vantage point is from the west side. Whiskey Island/Edgewater or over on Lake Rd. by the Pier W restaurant. Another good place is over by the old viaduct on the west bank. A good southside vantage point is from Tremont.

Just what I was thinking. That's from the Eastside. From the Westside I would say Edgewater Park up on the bluffs. Getting the beach and park in the picture in the foreground of the skyline adds a nice touch.

Downtown Voinovich Park on the Northcoast Harbor.

IMO, that's the best view in the city. The skyline looks very dense from that angle.

Just as a word of warning to the OP, the skyline from the Garfield monument will turn out great if you have a good zoom on your camera. Otherwise, it might appear too far away.

Garfield Monument at Lakeview Cemetery IMO. At just the right angle you can really capture everything about Cleveland in one shot, all of the buildings and the density, the trees, the lake, the shoreline, the factories. Another great place is up in CSU's Rhodes Tower where the density of Downtown is directly in your face. Edgewater is great for pictures of its beach and park setting but skyline wise the density between the buildings is missing with huge gaps in between from that angle.
