Thanks, DP! Until something new gets built, I'm working on developing my own original art work for the time being. It has taken up half my living room already.

This photo shows downtown Dallas, Uptown Dallas, CityPlace, and the Market Center / hotel district along the Stemmons Corridor. One can tell a distinct difference between downtown Dallas and Uptown in how the buildings are constructed and in their color tone.
The Southwestern Medical District skyline is just to the left of this picture.
When contrasted to Atlanta, central Dallas is more round while, though impressive in scale, Atlanta seems to be built more along a line. Also the two contrast in regards to the height limits put on the buildings. For example, the Museum tower in downtown is the first skyscraper built in Dallas over 40 stories in height in the last twenty-five years.
Also, the main entrance to Love Field and its runways are pointed in the direction of downtown limiting the size of buildings.

Winston-Salem. Not quite "skyline" photos, but a few from my visit this past December. WS has one of the most underrated skylines in the South, IMO.

I didn't expect to see anything over 10 floors in Winston-Salem until I drove through there a few years ago and was pleasantly surprised.

Yeah, it is a pretty cool city. The amount of large companies with headquarters there is amazing for a city of that size. The proximity to Greensboro also makes it stand out compared to other similarly sized cities, IMO. Nice metro area for the south.

Good question! Here's a model of the Boston Av United Methodist Church in Tulsa:



Looks like it!

It's an unexpected pleasure for skyscraper lovers. Winston-Salem has 91 buildings listed on this site, with 40 of them over 10 floors. Charlotte has 107 listed, so W-S is holding it's own. The city has a pleasant skyline IMO...

There is some beautiful historic architecture in downtown W-S...a couple of examples:
