    Small or large, cities or otherwise. Panoramics & stitched entries are ok. Photos must contain man made buildings to qualify.

    Theme suggestion brought to you by Kestrana–thanks!

    “Or otherwise”…
    Does that mean that the car by Nissan would work?

    You mean the over-hyped car by Nissan?

    Can it be a natural skyline like a tree line?

    I suspect “otherwise” refers to smaller towns, not natural landscapes. But Kestrana can clarify.

    There should be something man made in the picture that is composing the skyline. Thus, farmscapes would be valid but not just a series of trees.

    Sounds fair. Thanks for the clarification.

    Okay if there’s just ‘one’ manmade thing? I have a thought of a mountain range, one of which has a big “<—Phoenix" sign on it (back in the days before there were many roads, it's how people knew they were on the right track and not just lost in the desert). It should look lovely at sunset–if it's okay to use.

    That’s actually for aircraft – the whole story is here.

    Interesting, I did not know that!

    I dunno, that doesn’t really say “skyline” to me, but maybe Kestrana can weigh in when she has internet again tomorrow.

    I should also put her caveat about manmade stuff in the composition for the more casual Farktographers who don’t log in here…

    What about pictures of a harbor with almost no buildings but plenty of boats? And is a single building like a lighthouse ok?

    Trinidad? If my memory serves, there’s a couple of really cool shots I could probably get. Along the bluff road towards the ocean, with the inn (?) on the right for example.

    I added the man made building bit that Kestrana clarified.
