The story behind the image

When we were still living in Munich in Germany, we used to take long walks through the Olympic Park. On one of these occasions I took my tiny Kodak point-and-shoot digital camera and captured the iconic BMW headquarter.

I love the composition and way the gray steel building rises from the deep greens of the Olympic Park. The camera made a fantastic job in terms of color reproduction, requiring only very little correction. If only the size would be larger (in terms of pixels)! But those were the early days of digital photography.
