I like "ugly" buildings - I would describe it as BOLD!

I like the way you made the Drake's Circus a backdrop that looks nice as a part of the picture. TBH I think the real crime to aesthetics is the ugly as sin road in front. One can discuss whether the shopping mall is ugly, the road is the real abomination.

In the end you took a good picture

Thanks, Addy, but I have to disagree about the building. Perhaps ugliness is in the eye of the beholder. This building grates in its setting, for me, given the memorial purpose of the ruined church.

Id agree with you about the road, though!

Maarten,
A classic view of Marienplatz, and very nicely framed.
Also nice to see the twin belltowers of the cathedral in full view, rather than shrouded in scaffolding as they were when I was last there.

Marienplatz never heard of this city...
Nicely done Maarten, though I would have stepped back one footstep to get the full arch of the old town hall tower. Then again you're excused, because I know how busy that part of the city can be.

The shot would also perfectly fit into the Munich city thread.

So when did you stop by Munich this year? Next time we could target a mini-meet, if possible

Was there some 3 weeks back. Just a quick daytrip in-out of the city while on my way to the Balkan.

Enjoyed it sehr viel though!

Not sure when i'll pass through again, maybe end of the summer. Will let you know if so!
