Haha I guess I can see that if you take away the landmarks and were glancing really quickly at the skyline profile/silhouette. You’ve got buildings at pretty similar heights with multiple peaks of varying heights spread out.

^ Great shot! I love photos where skyscrapers appear to be sprouting out of city parks. NYC obviously has this with Central Park, Atlanta with Piedmont Park, Chicago has Lincoln on the north and the whole Grant/Millennium complex on the east/south...can't think of too many others.
