Photographer's Note

I actually wanted to photograph the Brandenburg Gate at night when it was lit up, but then I couldn't be bothered waiting. It is a scan from a Velvia and converted to b&w and toned. Why do that to Velvia. Because of the smoothness you get on the image.
It was nice to have so few people in shot, well I thought so as it's usually very busy.
Some info from Wickipedia:
The Brandenburg Gate (German: Brandenburger Tor) is a former city gate and one of the main symbols of Berlin, Germany. It is located between the Pariser Platz and the Platz des 18. März and is the only remaining gate of a series through which one formerly entered Berlin. One block to its north lies the Reichstag. It constitutes the monumental termination of Unter den Linden, the renowned boulevard of linden trees which led directly to the royal residence. It was commissioned by Friedrich Wilhelm II as a sign of peace and built by Carl Gotthard Langhans from 1788 to 1791.
