Nice picture. But that is Birkenau I belive.

Watcha Juliet,
cleverly crafted shot, sets of the starkness.
Thanks for your comment on Netteswell Morning; however, there was nothing brave about it being mono, it wasn't converted, it was shot on black and white filmSmile

A very strong image Juliet. V1 is my preference, it just seems to lend itself to the subject matter.
Hope you get over the chest cold. I always end up with something in my chest when there is a bug going around and it's miserable. My mother used to put a hot water bottle on my chest when I was younger, and sometimes that would help with congestion. Just take care and rest.

The image portrays a tragic event in history. I love the mood you have created. 4*
