this skyline is twice as good as my citys, yet we have twice as many people. I gave it a 9.5 for that fact alone.

I haven't followed this thread for several months and I must say I missed on many nice pics!!! I rate Des Moines skyline very high, particularly when considering the population of the city. I also see room for additional growth, which is crucial to the future of the downtown area. Keep the photos coming

We also have a metro area... not just the city of 200k. With the metro we're more like 520k.

9.0/10 It's a great skyline considering the population.
