    Located in Belgium - city of Liège, the building was designed by architecht Calatrava.

    Thanks for sharing these great images .
    Yes , great tonality and very good composition , especially images 1+2 .
    All they still need is a good framing .
    What lens did you use ?

    I completely agree with the previous mails about the high quality of yours pics - great job indeed. Two questions : do you use a tripod ? Do you get some authorization to shot in this station? (according to my own experience, SNCB/Tractebel are very suspicious when they see a camera).

    An other picture of this railway station, but taken with a 4"x5" pinhole camera on FP4+ sheet film - a 10" exposure in full sun.
    It's doesn't yield the quality that we are used to when using our Hassy's but I wantede to compare the results and I found it an amusing experience. [​IMG]

    I agree with all the comments above---wonderful shots.
    Tripod, hand held or monopod?

    Thanks for the comments and awfully sorry for the very late reply :eek:
    The first series were handheld.
    For the last one the pinhole camera was seated on an large ashtray, as it is normally forbidden to use a tripod in sncb railway stations...
