The best shot I've seen of Houston's skylines has to be the one in Paris, Texas (circa 1983).
It just looked so sculputural (besided brand-spaking new), and of course, beatiful. Still beatiful.
8.5/10.

Not too impressed with Houston's skyline. I like a couple of their tall one's but it looks kinda...wierd...spread out...almost misplaced.

Why is the Houston skyline so spread out, and in clusters? Are there very relaxed planning laws? Or is it a fairly decentralised city? (I ask this with absolutely no knowledge of Houston, but the recent pictures have made me quite curious!! Thanks in advance)

Houston has no zoning, which means a theres 40+ buildings can be right next to houses, schools, anywhere basically. Which makes the city unique.

The buildings need some sort of crown on top. Especially the tallest one which looks so prominent yet so mundane in a night time shot. 8/10

8/10, looks a little bit lame from far away but at the same time it is quite sizable when in scale...
