The rules are simple. A picture of a skyline will be posted and someone will have to guess which skyline it is. If you know it, respond in the next post and post your own picture of a city skyline. It can be any skyline in the world. PLEASE do not use the internet to figure out the skyline. Only respond if you know the last posted skyline picture. A good idea would be to save the image of your skyline to your desktop with a generic name like skyline.jpg and upload as an attachment (little paper clip icon) so that other posters can't trace the image to it's source, which may identify the city's name.

I will begin: Which skyline is this?
