A skyline is the overall or partial view of a city’s buildings and structures against the sky. It can also be described as the artificial horizon that a city’s overall structure creates. Skylines serve as a kind of fingerprint of a city, as no two skylines are alike. For this reason news and sports programs, television shows, and movies often display the skyline of a city to set location.
Skylines and cityscape are a common subject for photographs, and they are even frequently mimicked in web and graphic design.
There are hundreds of beautiful city skylines in the world. Some take their beauty because of the architecture itself, while others are complemented by their natural surroundings. In either case, the way a photographer chooses to capture a particular skyline has just as much impact on the final image as the skyline itself. Even a less-than-stellar skyline can be a work of art in the hands of a skilled photographer.
There’s a combine of daytime, nighttime, and twilight shots. Some have broad post-processing while others do not. Not all are professionally taken—it’s obvious some are simply snapshots—but they all capture the spirit of the city they feature. Some are taken from odd angles, and while some may argue that they’re not traditional skyline shots, they still have a similar look and are worth inclusion.
Today we have collected an inspirational showcase focusing on these skylines and some of the breathtaking photos they have lent their architectural compositions to. These images are captured in different different time. I hope you like these photos and give your precious comment which one you like. Enjoy!
