Neil,

I think your processing and your shots conjure up the spirits of the tragic history that took place here. A haunting that we should all experience lest we forget and allow it to be repeated.

Neil, these are really well done. Can't fault any of your processing whatsoever.
If I had to choose my favourite shots, it's based more on the composition and final "effect" - and that's partly because when I lived in Germany, I visited Dachau so can feel what you felt, all over again....

So, for me, #2 is outstanding due to the 100% feeling that it was taken when the camp was "operational".
And, "Could those people on the right be prisoners?" That was my thought about #5, so again, the realism, keeping alive the agony caused - so that it can't happen again - elevates this shot to "2nd place".

Well done.
Excellent work in so many ways...

IMO your PP made photos even more interesting. They seem to be very old. Good job Neil.

I visited Auschwitz back in the late 70's. You did an outstanding job photographing a tragic subject.
