Such a bleak and foreboding place. Your image captures the despair perfectly. Like many individuals from my generation (post war), I'm drawn to visit some day, to try and comprehend the horror.

BTW, was that hand held? Excellent at 1/80.

Thank you so much for your comments. Pentax shake reduction system helps a lot for a shaky hand as mine.

I too thought this was processed perfectly for what the photo was of. I'd love to visit there one day.

Suitably stark and grim.
