I like what you have done here - flowers laid on the tracks to annihilation. The wreath defiantly breaks the symmetry (totalitarianism thrives on conformist regularity), and almost breaks the sense of inevitability. Life, colour - if flowers can live and shine out...
I described myself recently as a selective colour sceptic, I think it works here in principle. But the flowers are just a bit too gaudy. Something I have noticed is that a mono background can make colours look very different to how they appear in the original full-colour frame. So I would reduce saturation on them by just say 15-20%.
I would also crop a few pixels off the right side. You've done well to get such neat formality so just those few extra pixels on the right niggle a bit. Mod to follow.
I like your toning by the way. It does capture the mood.

Agree about the tones. The gates at Birkenau are sombre enough anyway so not sure you need to use selective colouring here.

A very well know and used viewpoint. I quite like what you have done. At least it is a bit different to the usual aprroach to a heavily recorded scene. Thus you have tried to move from the masses.
