This is another image taken at this wonderful railway station - it is one of the main landmarks in Antwerp.
The railway station was built between 1895 and 1905 and replaced a wooden train station built in 1854 by engineer Auguste Lambeau. The monumental main building was designed by the Bruges architect L. Delacenserie. Source: aviewoncities.com

stazione ferroviaria ripresa in tutta la sua imponenza.
Architettura che sovrasta la gente sotto che dà l'idea del rapporto delle proporzioni,

Now, this is what I call a real railway station! You have captured it beautifully in this well exposed and well lit composition. The vertical format is perfect to capture the grandeur of the architecture, with the people creating a good sense of scale. Detail is first class!

What a wonderful facade!
Your viewpoint has captured the fine architectural details and the contrasting textures in an excellent symmetrical composition.
The figures animate the scene as well as showing the immense scale of the building.
Have a lovely Sunday,

it's very impressive how skillfully and precisely you fitted this magnificent view into the vertical frame providing for superb depth and perspective and admirable rendering of details. The fascination of the whole and the intriguing individual elements of the architecture captivate the viewer. You've dealt with the lighting very aptly capturing all the variations that vivify the exquisite scenery. The people's movement is captured with great sharpness and they add to the character of the place and the vividness of the picture. I love the colours and the atmosphere too. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day and week,

Cette gare est d'une architecture des plus intéressante. Le cadrage lui rend hommage en lui donnant beaucoup d'amplitude et la lumière est magique.

RR station that looks like a Ball-room in a palace, Malgorzata.
As always I enjoy the perfect light and clarity indoor's of your posts, great managed here, no backlight-effect from windows far on BG.
Fine shot, pleasent to watch.

It is a grand place with rich detail. Luckily you hade a wide enough lens with you. Classic details show well on this symmetric framing. I remember I had hard times deciding how to take photos there, and never was quite satisfied with my results.

świetna zwarta kompozycja Małgorzato,

This picture has a lot of details of the station, in different levels with absolute clarity. The exposure is well managed and good show of the activities in the station, although very few people. I happened to have crossed this station in a Thalys train from Amsterdam, but this good designs were not visible from the platform.

En effet c'est une architecture vraiment magnifique, une décoration de toute beauté surtout donner par le cadrage, la lumière et la netteté, bravo

What amazing quality and detail. The architecture is very interesting and well done for capturing it so beautifully.
Have a good week,

Your photo shows beautiful architecture and symmetry, with an elegant presentation. There are so many details to study. It must be amazing to enter this great train station. Stations like this make you feel like you are not only taking a great train journey, but you are also stepping back in time.

Une autre excellente photo de cette spectaculaire gare d'Anvers. Bon cadrage, belles couleurs et très bonne gestion de la couleur.

We feel the 3D dimensions and have time to stroll in this hall with the pedestrians to discover the stunning architecture.

Lovely architecture of the central station. I like the colors and the lights, well seen scene.
Have a good week.

a splendid photo of this imposing interior, the composition is very spectacular, superb lights and details. Great shot, Tfs! Have a nice week! Kellemes hetet kívánok!
carlo62 (53252) 2012-08-27 15:27
l'imponenza di questa stazione si nota dalle persone che si distinguono molto male nell'insieme. Grande architettura e bella foto, riuscire a prenderla tutta con questa qualità, non è facile. La luce è controllata molto bene, sono leggibili anche i punti del pavimento dove la luce è sparata.
Alco (7531) 2012-08-27 18:58
Very nice picture of that railway station.A sharp picture which allows us to observe many beautiful details.The lighting is perfectly well managed.Very well done.
Have a nice Tuesday.

Niby tylko dworzec kolejowy a wygląda jak jakiś pałac!
Faktycznie - wizytówka miasta nawet tak pięknego jak Antwerpia.
Bardzo efektowne zdjęcie i wspaniała miejscówka!
Pozdrawiam z Dublina.

Hello Malgo! Beautiful colors very dynamic. I like your POV which make the station biggest. The contrasts of the shadows are excellent. Perfect details show well on this symmetric framing.
mkamionka (39531) 2012-08-30 8:14
wyglada na to ze podrozowanie po Belgii pociagiem jest wspanialym przezyciem. Piekna stacja i zasluguje na oddzielny reportaz. Podobaja mi sie tutaj te odbicia w posadzce dodaja uroku i atmosfery.
vjmite (4216) 2012-08-31 2:51
A great view of the railway station, with good colours and exposure. I like the way you captured the person in the centre foreground silhouetted by the reflection.

Interesting architecture well presented, perfect light management and good sharpness, I like the brightness on the floor.
