@Gérard Beullac: Thanks Gérard. It's one of the most deceptively simple yet very moving memorials that I've visited.

The composition is great. I´m not sure about the postprocessing. It feels like jeust a little bit to much of burning and dodging. But the feeling the image creates is sensational.

I like very much the dramatic effect which your treatment added to this already very impressive place by its graphics. Excellent.

I've seen many a photo of this place - this has to be one of the best I've seen. Such depth with a sense of depression that reflects the memory.
