A piece of history, needed to be preserved and remembered of those sad days. Interesting notes with this image of yours, I like the addition to theme friday.
The sky is somewhat over exposed giving a bleached effect, you may want to re consider the settings you used or to reposition yourself to eliminate more of the sky. The building has much merit. tfs Have a good weekend.

Hello Taryn, thank you for the comprehensive notes; I was unaware of this building.Your title says it all, it is a very impressive building,'Hats off!' to the architect.
I think that I might have adjusted the contrast a little.It is a pity about the colourless sky, but that can't be helped, as I know only too well.
Certainly a good entry for the theme.

An important piece of humanity's history. One can only say: Never Again. I am glad that you posted this photo.

A pity that sky is completely washed out but overall you managed to achieve quite good results from this hostorical world famous site, Taryn!
The picture is razor-sharp and color contrasts within the picture are well maintained.
Good low POV and the branch of the tree overhead adds another piece of charm into the scene.
A well elaborated note also add interest here.
A well thought entry to Friday's theme.
Have a nice weekend.
A very popular builbing in Japan...
So popular that it is not easy to get a "stunning" picture of it. At least, your angle is fine. Just a good vacation-snap shot.
Unfortunately, I could not say that this is razor-sharp, here.
The borders are blurred, and there is quite a lot of diffraction too (look at the trees in front on the right)!
For your defense, yes, there is not much to do with such an overcast sky, on a day like that.
for such a picture, the simplest thing to do to make it "unique" is to twick it in post processing (a simple B/W will do fine). Then nobody will make comments about the sky anymore...
Keep on posting and have fun!
"Good" entry for the theme.

When ever I see this it reminds me of a tragedy that killed people by the people for the people, the champions of peace that how they claim, TFS.

This is fantastic. Apart from the fact that you have a wonderful eye for form and shape, the photojournalistic effect is invaluable. It reminds us again of the ugliness of war and of the greed for power. Congratulations also that no PP was required. Well done.

Good note with this "shocking" image and its black story behind it.
The light looks like it is made in the Netherlands ... but there is no such building here. ;-)
Good composition, and a good posting for the theme.
