If you mean natural beauty when you say "natural", you left out of your poll one of the primary examples: San Francisco.

Of your list, I will say Vancouver.

seattle... vancouver is pretty low rise and lots of cookie cutter...
there is only one building over 150m... seattle has like 20+ along with the better architecture of the two and the supersonic thing. throw in giant mountain backdrop and its over for me.

Most people are gonna pick Seattle over Denver but I pick Denver b/c it's the only one listed I've actually been to plus I think the skyline is highly underrated compared to the rest listed (except maybe Portland).

Seattle is the best with its Space Neetle and Mt. Ranier.

I think san francisco should be on the list, it's known for world wide for its natural beauty and would most likely beat most of those cities listed.
