Based only on pictures I've seen, Vancouver BC has an awesome and very unique skyline

I voted for Vancouver and San Francisco. I think the best skylines are the ones with some variance in height, with good building density.

How could you not have Houston on there for skyline choice, but have Oklahoma City?

Denver is at the top of my list. But without the mountains it falls towards te bottom sadly. Man, this is harder than I thought. At least I am not the only one that wondered why Oklahoma City was mentioned without Houston even making the cut. Once again. Do people really understand how big both economic and population wise Houston is? The last time I checked it was the 4th largest city in the nation.
