The Fernsehturm, a television tower located in the city centre of Berlin closed to the Alexanderplatz. It was constructed between 1965 and 1969 by the former German Democratic Republic administration who intended it as a symbol of Berlin, which it remains today. With its height of 368 meters, it is the tallest structure in Germany. More on: Wikipedia.

interesting choice to present this one in the monochrome theme.
I would also like to see it in color :)
what really makes this photo work in my opinion are the varying shades of darkness (closer to the bottom, and brightness closer to the top).
it just seems to work well visually that way.
love the tall tower and its position inside the frame.
this is a new vantage point of this often photographed TV tower, i like it!

J'aime beaucoup le format de cette image ainsi que cette tour qui se dresse vers le ciel comme un doigt vengeur. Le noir et blanc est bien joli.

I don't like long descriptions in a review of a photo,
so it's a well composed shot with nicely graded light.

Trying to imagine this in color, I think I agree with you that B&W is a better choice. Great pov and dof with nice contrast. Well done, tfs.

Very beautiful capture from berlin. I like the artistic b&w and the vertical way of composing the scene.
Good work, have a nice evening.
Cricri (107244) 2012-04-09 10:48
Un bon choix du format verticale, le POV de la tour avec les bâtiments qui donne l'échelle, bon détails rendu par une bonne lumière, le choix du N/B convient bien ici

Hello dear Malgorzata,
I don't know if you had ever heard the joke from Paris.
A Parisian been asked which part of Paris is his (or her) favorite. The answer; the top of the Eiffel Tower.
This is the only point in Paris, from where you can not see the Eiffel !
Thesame relates to this ugly landmark of former East-Berlin.
But the b&w capture is just perfect with it's pov and layout.
Nice framing as well.
TFS and best regards

Dobrze pouk³adane w kadrze.

a wonderful composition and a great choice of black and white format make this picture delightful and elegant. I like very much the perspective and depth, the different styles and angles of the buildings that render the cityscape very interesting. The top of the tower surrounded by the powerful light makes a great contrast and a very strong impression. Well done and thank you!
All the best,
patdeph (35748) 2012-04-09 11:25
a very well composed picture with all htse vertical lines given by the different towers,and a nice use if the curve of the road on the foregroung.The B&W gives a nice harmony and the sky is superb.

ottima scelta il B&W per questa immagine,la composizione ne guadagna in drammaticità, soprattutto grazie al cielo.

The famous needle in Berlin, on the darkening B&W sky's, a nice perspective collected, Malgorzata.
I climb a simila tower in Toronto and Macau, must be a fabulous experience here as well.
I wonder why not a colors version, assuming grey sky prevailed.

Hello my dear Malgorzata
A great impressive postcard shot!
Very well considered and perfect vertical framework.
Good idea for usage of B&W color to enhance this attractive image. Clear and sharp presentation is as usual. Thanks for your sharing with your good work and have a good day,
Takero in Tokyo

Hello Malgo! Great scene, great POV, very good framing and composition! Excellent perspective! Great light management, excellent choice of b & w with great contrasts! today combines the past with success! but interesting! A look that has many points and I love it! Bravo
ChrisJ (99212) 2012-04-14 9:20
Missed this one. A superb b&w image of the tower. There are so many of them now all around the world: Sydney, Toronto, Calgary, Shanghai, KL, Tianjin & here in Germany. The v shaped path at left adds lead in lines. Good sharpness & tonal range. Tfs!
Nard (6972) 2012-04-16 5:06
Nice B&W picture to present this futuristic architecture. A beautiful sky that enhances the contrast and a good framing with the sidewalk on the corner.
alex4ndru (1402) 2012-04-17 5:50
nice bw composition, i like how this tower seems that lights up the sky. TFS
all the best!
kato (11630) 2012-04-22 2:04
You're capturing well this TV tower by a good composition and excellent B/W tone/clarity, so it's impressive to see a high tower with a circular observatory. And, it's impressive in clouds in the sky.
wolf38 (31282) 2012-11-15 3:13
Hello Malgorzata. My last visit to Berlin's many years ago. Therefore, I like to see pictures of our capital. The TV tower is of course an ideal subject for photographers. Black and white is a good choice. Also I really like the composition.
