Hamburg railway station

Discussion in 'Landscapes, Architecture, and Cityscapes' started by IRDutch, Sep 17, 2008.

  1. Hi all,

    I brought a friend to the airport of Hamburg and decided to stay there for one day. I booked a room in a hotel, bought a metro/tram ticket that is valid for 9 hours and visited the city. In the late afternoon i arrived at the main railway station and decided to take some pictures there. Here are the results. I hope you like them.

  2. Nice set, although I do prefer the colour.
     
  3. Nice captures, Gert-Jan.
    I'm generally not a big fan of b&w, but railway stations
    with their many clear lines seem to be calling for it.

    Nice shots. I prefer the color version, but the composition of all of them is very good. I was at that station in February and liked it a lot, too.
     
  5. These images bring back some memories, have been through there many times. Often travelled on the ICE train as in #1.
    You have captured the atmosphere well, I found it a pretty bland place but like all major stations there is a certain buzz of travellers.
    Thanks for posting them.

  8. Great series and nice shots of a fascinating place. I am always impressed by the train stains of Europe, Madrid's Atoch comes to mind. On a smaller scale, they could be modern day cathedrals to technology.
     
  9. Hi Gert-Jan,
    Nice series well done
     
  10. A very good series, I personally prefer the B&W shots, the rail lines and patterns formed by the windows and glass roof work well IMO.
     
  11. Tom, Arthur and Kevin. Thanks for the comments. I appreciate it. Pictures were made at ISO800. I tried to focus at an object not to far away for maximum depth of field. All pictures were made without a tripod or monopod. I am happy with the results.
