Read the rules! You can nominate only one skyscraper per country. And how can you say the Pinnacle is one of your favourite skyscrapers, it isn't even under construction yet ...

I think Mosfilm Tower has not very good photo - the barcode-like cladding is not seen. Maybe it's better to take one of these:

^ finding a good image is not always easy, especially because of the square size of the image. When cropping a great vertical or horizontal image, not much might be left of it.

Also keep in mind the image is just a visual reminder of what buildings we're voting for. This is not a photo competition, but a skyscraper one.
