This is a very emotional photo for me. My mother was Jewish, and I identify greatly with the victims of the Holocaust. I was in Berlin for the first time a few months ago, and my wife and I visited this monument. It brought tears to my eyes. Your photo brings back those memories for me. A good photo will do that. You have shown how large this monument is, using perspective and background buildings. If there is any negative thing to say about your image, it would be that I think it would have had more impact as a black-and-white photo. The monument itself is only in shades of gray. Thanks for an excellent memory.

I find this photo intriguing. First, I love the bright blue color of the center of attention against the more subdued colors of the fore- and backgrounds. Second, the perspective is very interresting, with a curved vanishing point that is off the right side of the image. I am a big fan of perspective in photos, and your POV has really caught my eye on this one. The background hills provide additional perspective, but one without a defined vanishing point. Excellent work!

Your photos have such amazing perspective, which is one of my favorite principles of artwork. It appears in this image as if the trees really do vanish in the vanishing point. I also like the contrast of the warm tone of the trees, and the afternoon sun on the snow with the cool blue of the sky. Very nice, indeed. Thanks for sharing.

Ich bin Amerikaner, aber ich liebe doch Österreich. Vor mehreren Jahren habe ich einen Sommer im Salzburgerland verbracht. Die Landschaft und die Stadt in dieser Foto erinnert mich sehr and die kleine Stadt, wo ich dann wohnte. Die Berge, die Gebäude, alles, was ich hier sehe gibt mir Heimatweh, obgleich meine eichte Heimat liegt in Missouri in den USA. Danke sehr für diese und Deine anderen schönen Bilder aus Europas schönstem Land.

I really like this photo for several reasons. It has excellent contrast, with the deep shadows on the left and right, with the bright sunlit buildings in the center. I also like the church spire on the left, which interrupts the plain blue of the sky. I am always a big fan of perspective in images, and your photo shows both linear and implied-line perspective, with the vanishing point off the left side of the image. Excellent job.
By the way, j'aime beaucoups visiter la France.

So many of your photographs have excellent perspective lines in them. This one has perspective, of course, as seen in the smaller size of the more distant trees. What attracts me is the illusion of perspective lines created by the rays of sunlight. It's an excellent trompe l'oeil.
Keep up the good work.

This wide-angle shot is superb. I am always pleased by photos and other images with good perspective. The wide angle emphasizes the perspective to a great degree. In this particular image, two-point perspective is excellently depicted. Very nicely done, Thanks.

I wish I had seen this building when I was in Düsseldorf last summer. It is magnificent. Your photo captures the fluid 'motion' of the architecture, deisgned with no straight lines at all. An excellent image. Thanks for sharing it.
