I noticed that alot of smaller and mid-sized cities are adding modern skyscrappers to their skyline,some of these cities are looking great.

I think Des Moines' skyline was actually decent! Tulsa and Louisville are runner-ups, particularly Louisville, its gorgeous at night when viewed from Indiana. The skyline's reflections in the river are nice.

Ugh... that pic of Tucson is the epitome of man-made ugliness. lol The mountains are what makes that town unique.

I know it is a lot smaller than those cities, but I have to give a write-in vote for Asheville, NC:

Asheville's skyline is *yawn* boring, but the scenery behind it always makes me smile.

Knoxville, same story. And for Pete's sake, will they ever take down that hideous gold-disco-balled sex toy out of there (aka the Sunspere)?!?! If I remember correctly, that nasty contraption was built for some Worlds Fair or some dang thing. Hideous. What a scar on an otherwise semi-decent skyline. Oh, and the Smokies are nice.
