Iíve just returned from my long trip from which Iíve brought some photographs. This is an image from place where my journey actually started, Singapore Changi Airport, Terminal 3 after midnight while waiting for connecting, AB 380, flight to Europe.
Terminal 3 became operational on 9th January 2008. The first test flight out of Terminal 3 was a Singapore Airlines flight from Singapore to Perth. The Terminal 3 has 28 aerobridge gates, with eight capable of handling the Airbus A380.
Like other new airports in the region, the Terminal 3 has a structure mainly made of glass, with big transparent spaces inside the terminal. However, unlike these newer airports, it incorporates "natural" features and "warm" tone extensively to balance the sterile feel of glass and steel. The roof has been designed to allow natural light to enter the building.
Terminal 3 is a shopaholicís paradise with two dedicated shopping zones.

Airports are always bring a "busy" scenery, Miro.
A nice chosen POV from a balcony showing many passangers in a rush movement over the shining floor.
Superb taken photo, light and clarity were super.

A photo full of light and action, the crowd seems to be greater with reflection in the floor, well seen, well done

That's my backyard Miro and this shot makes me proud indeed as much as I love your splendid work here. Such a good clarity achieved that looks so clean using iso 1600 and the right color combination is brilliantly soothes the eyes. I think your pov is spot on capturing the traffic flows straight on with good effect of compressed perspective. Indeed a cheery shot, so well executed with quality end results. Congrats.

Hi dear Miro, how are you?
So long time no news fro you--- You had a long trip.
Recentely I am not so activate at this site----.
This is full of nostalgy and makes me want to go abroad, Ya Changi is one of the best airport all over the world, I think. Great shot as usual.
Thanks a lot and have a good day! Takero

Glad you traveled safely and good to have you back! :) After seeing so many great shots like this from airports, I'm now realizing just how much time I've wasted simply sitting around and waiting to board the plane, when I could have been putting it to good use! This vantage point gives a great sense of the constant hustle and bustle of people coming and going at all hours all over the world. This elevated position also allows us to see more of the reflections in the floor, which is a nice visual element to the scene. Well arranged and conveyed, thanks for the view. Have a great day ahead.
All the best,

You're capturing well this place by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive the inside of modern airport terminal. I can see many element in here, so there are many travelers who go a passage back and forth, shops, many signs which displayed the gate and the institution. If it judges from a photograph, this airport seems to keep functional and bright lighting.

I like that airport scene Miro, you were very prompt to take it
Airports are place where we are often in rush and no time to take shot except in transit
A key hub of South east asia

I see ants in Changi Airport, each of those carrying instinctively bits of luggage towards the nest!
Unlike in nature they work in a more colourful environment adorned of shining reflections!

nice the interior view of the interior of the airport,
with the lot of people to stroll in it.I like the light and the colour management of the scene.
Have a good afternoon,Danos

a very effective point of view that allowed you to include in the frame the walking people and the significative signs. A very clear and interesting interior shot, you captured the movement, the colours, the intensity of the lights and the atmosphere in a marvellous way. I love watching the people passing by at airports and I like this capture very much. The impression of movement is stunning. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely weekend,

Nice view of this terminal, the reflections on the floor make it look wet. The light management is excellent.
Thank you for your link to your airplane photos. Are you familiar with the website Airport-Data.com? Here is a link to my airplane photos there. Well, most of them are mine; my son likes to upload airplane photos to my account, too. For some reason, he does not want to have his own account and when he uploads to mine, he just changes the copyright info.
