The best spot is actually in Windsor. From their waterfront you can usually get all the major identifiable buildings in.

On the Detroit side, it's a bit more tricky. Hart Plaza is a decent spot though you really wouldn't get too much of the whole skyline.

There's a little hill in Milliken State Park next to the Riverwalk where you most have a good view of the Ren Cen with the other buildings trailing behind.

And lastly, a 3rd good spot is from the tip of Belle Isle. Similar view from the hill in Milliken State Park but just a little bit farther away.

You might try the tip of Belle Isle. Have the camera stand as far away from you as possible and use a strong telephoto to compress the distances.

I got some good pictures this way on one of the balconies at the casino. Great view of the city from there.

Belle Isle is a good spot.
