Pretty straight forward question.
Which do you prefer?
And please no extra pics needed, always seem to get that one person that feels the need to post 500 pictures.

Natural

Like Infamous92, I like both. But my very favorite skyline is mountains and pine trees, like in the Pacific Northwest.

There is a reason why I live where I live. Perched between the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore and Chicago (well, much closer to the Dunes actually), I can get as much of either skyline as I need! I can go from wildlife to wild life in minutes!

With as many city vs. city skyline battles posted I was curious which way this would go.

I love city skylines, and I prefer them, but nothing beats the skyline I saw in Santorini--the white washed buildings with the mediterranean along with the sunset. I have a picture I took of it on my profile.

A great skyline should have everything, water, mountains, and manmade structures.

Prime examples are Hong Kong, Vancouver, Seattle, Honolulu, and San Francisco.

Natural. I never even realized that people actually liked city skylines until I found City_Data.com

I like the natural much better. Buildings are just buildings. There's nothing that pretty about them.

God's creations are much more beautiful than man's. Natural.
