Natural, enhanced by man. (sorry, women too).

God's creations are unmatched. However, when humans can add to it, the result is spectacular. San Francisco and Seattle are two very good examples.

I like both as well, but I had to go with natural. I like living in an area that has both like this:

man made, natural is nice, but prefer something you can do more than just look at...natural ones are just that for me, something to look at.

I don't even consider this to be a choice. It's like saying which meat do you like more, Chicken or Carrots. It's like, Um, Carrots aren't even a skyline.

I prefer a decent, dense, tall, colorful skyline with a nice mountain backdrop like LA or SLC

Yeah the question to me was more of, do you like to be in nature vs. a city...I prefer the city over the outdoors.

Actually that would be quite wrong. A skyline is "The line along which the surface of the earth and the sky appear to meet; the horizon." So more like pork or chicken.

There is another thread, "Which white meat do you prefer".

You can be in a city and still have a natural skyline.

To the op:How about natural and manmade at the same time? Why dont you have that poll option!? And you should put other examples for manmade as well as nature.

To waterlily: Buildings are/can be just as awesome as nature and matters just as much as nature! I see it says you live in the Oregon coast! I went to Cannon Beach in August 2009 and its one of the most beautiful beaches I ever saw! Loved it. Are there other areas of the Oregon coast like Cannon Beach?

To buzzpost: Buildings and creation by people can be as beautiful as nature.

To californio sur: I think Los Angeles' skyline is kind of ugly. Looks like you got a picture of the mountains in the background on a rare smog free day in the valley there in winter. I think places like Seattle, and San Francisco in America are better examples than Los Angeles at having amazing nature and amazing urban landscape at the same time.
