Ok, I have always been apprehensive to put my hometown up here. However, after reviewing much of the list I have come to the conclusion mine isn't near the best but not the worst so here goes. Be nice! :)

Looks about average for a smaller city, but I like the architectural details. It's nice to see a bit of fanciness as opposed to plain modern boxes like you'd find in Midland or Odessa. A building that stood head and shoulders above the others, like that one tall tower in Waco would really help out. Either that or some very unusual -- say really stellar art deco -- buildings would help.

As is, 6/10

Yeah me too but I won't hold my breath for that. Seems like most cities its size in Texas have a building that stands above the rest. Amarillo, Lubbock, Midland, Waco, Abilene, Tyler, Beaumont, etc. One aspect I like is that its compact but the height is too uniform. IMO it needs more diverse heights.

why'd you even bother?
Because its a skyline thread.

wrong poll title
Is that better?

I shot some of those on Thanksgiving Day which is a BIG US holiday. Plus the fact that this is just how many US city cores are now with sprawl and the advent of malls.
