If someone could post pictures as well, I would greatly appreciate it, I'm not good at it.

Probably Los Angeles, since it does have mountains as a backdrop (though back during the worst smog days of the 80's, that wasn't so clear...)

Dallas has a decent skyline, but the surrounding environment is mostly flatlands. This is also why I think Vancouver has one of the best skylines in North America.

L.A. is larger, taller, has much nicer buildings, and has a better backdrop. It's an easy choice for me.

LA's is much denser. I was amazed when I first realized what an awesome set of dense low-rise and mid-rise buildings LA has. It just doesn't have the supertalls that people expect with a "skyline".

Other than the stunning backdrop of LA's skyline......I'd call it a draw.

It's rare to every actually see the LA skyline through the smog, much less the hills nearby..
