I still couldn't tell, but i'm guessing its because the buildings were digitally put into the picture, so they're kinda hard to tell.

Of course with the rate other cities are growing, that still may be quite small at that time. Nothing wrong with that though, I love cities like Tulsa, full of charm.

I still think that fountain on the little peninsula is what tops that skyline off.

Thumbs up Midland, TX

Well, here's a city most of you have probably never heard of. Midland, TX...hometown to President George Bush and first lady Laura Bush. This is really a small city...population 100,200 people. Now Midland is a major oil city in west texas and for a city it's size, it really has an amazing skyline! El Paso is about 6 times Midland's size and Midland still has more skyscrapers than El Paso. Midland is located about midway of Ft. Worth and El Paso. It's definitely a city that needs a little more recognition for its skyline. If you have the time, please look it up online or on wikipedia.

From these pictures Birmingham looks the most impressive followed by Tulsa. I've driven through Richmond before and its skyline is a lot larger and more impressive than the picture shows.
