Hi Inaam,
A rather strange POV, although I like low angled shots. Very sharp stones between the rails but I'm afraid the right rail is having too much space, although I like the composition!
Nice red building taking the whole BG space.
A very sharp image while the sky is enhancing the lovely contrast in this presentation.
Good work.

Hi Inaam,
Good low POV --by the rail tracks. Nice composition showing this building with sharp details. TFS Julie

I like the low pov and good title...it's something that is applicable to any similar situation. The dark clouds in the background added to the mood created. Great pov and dof with nice details. Well done, tfs.

Hi Inaam,
A nice perpective of the railroad track to follow her eyes in the entry of the building,
a well composed and presented picture..
very well done.

Interesting POV of the entrance to what must be one of the most harrowing places in the world to visit, Phil.

Hello Inaam

We all have our beast that make horrible memories for us. I am not sure I would relate these two together............6 million humans have not been slaughtered at Guantanamo bay. I will agree that holding people on assumptions or political reasons is very incorrect. interesting composition here with thought. I like it

God Bless

Dear Inaam ji,

Though the railway track is too centered in the picture but somehow it worked well, as it tends to bring the attention to certain depths!

Great focus and nice clarity where a cloudy sky adds drama into the scene.
The building at far has a nice architecture and a well shown daily-life scene enhances the overall appeal of the picture.

Well done!

Unique POV that gives the viewer a view that they are coming from/into the station.
Great clarity of the subject and composition of the clouds in the sky.
I also like the rich browns in the track and building.


Hi Inaam:
A very well done pic with an interesting pov here... the rails take my eyes to the gates of hell and holds them there only to stir the imagination....... excellent photo ......... thanks for sharing.............Roman :0)

Hi, Inaam.The right rail and the cars lead the eye to the entrance. A really low POV but the clarity and saturation of the colors are excellent.The expanse of the building form a nice contrast to the clouds. Cheers.

Bravo et amitié


boa noite Inaam
Thanks for the photo...The rail leads us ... I must say that I think your low perspective make a great sense to me and the centered rail too...this is not a simples place...we have feelings about it... You achieve a good sharpness and a visual impact of the building. different approach, yes because it is a different building.
Um abraço

Hello Inaam :)

I see, that you visited this the terrible place, what bylo in the period II world war...Auschwitz-Tremblinka.
You where stood doing the picture here, then there was the railway loading platform on which the selections of the people who were brought to the camp were made.
Very natural colours and good light, showy realization.

Best wishes.


Technically a well executed photograph but I find your title and note more than disturbing.

You should know that this is a place where a bunch of insane criminals intended to extinguish millions of innocent, defenseless people who didn't cause any harm.

This has nothing in common with Guantanamo or any other prison camp. Auschwitz was hell on earth and it is incomparable. If you don't know exactly what was going on here you better should not write notes about it. Sorry for trying to teach you!
