View of Birkenau gatehouse from outside the camp

The photo above shows the entrance to the Birkenau camp, taken from the outside of the camp.  Not a very dramatic shot, is it?  If you want a dramatic shot of the tracks leading into the camp, you have to photograph the gate house from the inside of the camp and pretend that it is the outside; the gate house looks the same on both sides.
