Not the most flattering picture of the Westin, but it still wins.

I still kinda like 101 California Street, but since it's not on here, Peachtree.

Marina City for sure. It was built in the 60s and is still impressive.

Here are some more pictures:

I don't think Capital Records or Pisa Tower can be considered as skyscrapers, so they're out for me ;-)
Westin Peachtree has this awfully dated brown cladding that manages to be even more awful at the top, so also out.
I have to say it's a difficult choice between Marina City and Temasek tower :-) Both are very good Temasek tower is a masterpiece of sleekness and elegance, but Marina City is so impressive and iconic I'll go for it
