Ha! nice to see you over here, this thread honors the city.

Fact about the Montparnasse tower that you shot several times:

Quite a shame, isn't it? It won't even come 1st since the Boston city hall stole that privilege. In fact that tower in Montparnasse isn't particularly ugly, it just looks like a regular modern highrise. The problem is it's stupidly alone in the skyline, which is weird indeed because skyscrapers obviously work only in clusters. Although I've got 2 exceptions on my mind, the Eiffel tower (but it's not a building) and probably the Shard of London thanks to its shape slimming as it rises, definitely a great building for that feature.

^ I don't think Montparnasse would be so bad if it wasn't so monolithic. The one pro of it being all by itself, unobstructed views of the entire city.

Great shots Freki, you must have been tired after climbing all those stairs.
