The Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe , Berlin
Wiki link

the cross popped out after i took it
the title was going to be "so many deaths due to religion." or similar
but i prefered the indirection of the christian symbol agaist the jewish memorial ..

me - i'm not religious and i believe humans are stupid animals
for any group to cause a mass murder shows how base of an animal we really are

Good perspective. Like how it creates the cross. Wish the buildings were more dark without darkening the sky.

Definitely - from the ground up - but subject is not very interesting.

Well done! I like the angle and the transitions of the dark and lighter color tones. I also like the "invisible" cross appearing out of the heaven and the stones. The title "From the Ground Up" would really suit this image as well!

Impressive. Like the Symmetry

I'm not really sure what I'm looking at, but I like this. I'm wondering what it is and how it relates to your title. I would prefer if the photo was centered from right to left.

Love the way this forms a cross in the center - great shot

I'm guessing this is a memorial, although i'm not sure exactly which one... assuming that, i love how the forms are very dark, against the bright and beautiful sky in the the shape of a cross. great symbolism.
