The Dresden Frauenkirche (Church of Our Lady) is a Lutheran church in Dresden, the capital of the German state of Saxony. The church was Roman Catholic until it became Protestant during the Reformation. It is considered an outstanding example of Protestant sacred architecture, featuring one of the largest domes in Europe.
Built in the 18th century, the church was destroyed in the bombing of Dresden during World War II. The remaining ruins were left as a war memorial, following decisions of local East German leaders. The church was rebuilt after the reunification of Germany. The reconstruction of its exterior was completed in 2004 and its interior in 2005.

Absolutely eye-catching and elegant presentation of this superb architecture. Its beauty makes the view really wonderful! Superb seen and spotted with cold tonality. Like it!

Nice presentation of this church
I like the ambient light, and the sharpness.
The POV is very classical and maybe a strong foreground is missing for a more artistic or original view. But for an illustrative presentation, it's excellent ;)

The low POV highlights the church, which looks imposing under such a grey sky.
