I've just read through the article in wikipedia. It was really interesting how nacis lived back then. Of course, it was also one of the most terrifying period...

Beautiful composition here, adding the telescope was a good idea. Best wishes, archrodney!

Thanks so much for your comment, Archrodney! Composition is a difficult thing. They say: he has a feeling for composition...but do we know what they mean? I don't think so.

What can I say about it? Yes, I wanted the combination of the monument with the telescope, bringing the two together in one image. And there are the converging lines of the monument heading to the vanishing point (how symbolic...) and (the line of) the telescope pointing to heaven, listening in silence to signs of maybe new life.

Of course I didn't realize this when taking the picture. And will this analysis increase the value of the picture? Who will say?

Cheers, Erik

Definitely wont if you're talking about price. Unless you're talking about how people will react to your photo, I think it could raise its value. Because most of my shots (which I think the best) were taken by coincidence too. ;) cheers, archrodney!
