Have to go with Dallas, the golf ball and glowing building stood out, Austin second because of the lakes around it, Houston looked bland, but may have had more buildings.

You should at least get some recent pictures of the Austin skyline -- it looks pretty different from your pics. But it's still not in the league of Dallas or Houston. If this were "most changed skyline", then maybe Austin should be in the running.

Also, runoffs typically involve only 2 candidates. With three or more, you run the risk of having the same outcome (no one has over 50%). Just FYI

I think Dallas has the best skyline, Houston has a very nice skyline and Austin for its size has an awesome skyline.

Houston during the day. Dallas at night.

I'm voting for Houston. They have many neat buildings along with two over 300 meter buildings which I like. Houston also has uptown and medical center and that impresses me. Imagine if they stick them all in downtown. You really should vote for Houston. Haha.
