Neither skyline is really that dense but they both have good height so it's really height vs. height. I'm not sure though which skyline is taller maybe LA? It seems that LA has more taller buildings.

Atlanta and LA's tallest buildings are the same height. 310 Meters for both.

I think Atlanta is the taller one between the two when you compare the entire skyline.

My vote is with Atlanta, I've always been impressed with it's buildings, even more than my city of Houston.

Atlanta has the larger, more dominant skyline.
