Graphic, moody, and superbly framed. This image is both beautiful and disturbing. Well done!!

Thanks all for your comments. This was taken last February 2 on my birthday. I took about a 100 pictures at Auschwitz that day and it has become my most memorable birthday ever.
Thanks again for the comments.

Davy--congrats on this wonderful shot.
The history of this place is dramatized so well in the stark nature of this cold-looking B&W. Good luck in the next round.

Wow, I certainly didn't expect this. Thank you Cynthia, Margie, Guy, and Lorri.
It's an image that has haunted me since I took it. Looking out of this cold barn toward what should be freedom only shows a gaurd tower and barbed wire. If I hadn't taken the time to think about and frame this shot my emotional response might have been a lot less.
Thanks again for the comments.
Davy

Congratulations on your win! This photo really captures the depressing mood of Auschwitz. I was there in 2002 and still remember it very clearly. Your picture is very moving.

What a shot! It made me feel despair and lonliness. Very moving.
