Two photos from the Airport of Copenhagen. The second one locates in WS.
The airport is located on the island of Amager, just 8 kilometres (5.0 mi) south of Copenhagen city centre, and 24 kilometres (15 mi) west of Malmö city centre on the other side of the Øresund Bridge. The airport lies mainly in the municipality of Tårnby, with a small portion in neighbouring Dragør.
The airport is the main hub out of three used by Scandinavian Airlines and is also an operating base for Thomas Cook Airlines Scandinavia and Norwegian Air Shuttle. Copenhagen Airport handles 60 scheduled airlines and serves more than 62,000 passengers per day; 23.3 million passengers passed through the facility in 2012, making it the busiest airport in the Nordic countries, with a maximum capacity of 83 loadings/hour and with room for 108 aeroplanes. Unlike other Scandinavian airports, a considerable share of the airport's passengers are international. The domestic part of the annual passengers is lower than 10%. The airport is owned by Københavns Lufthavne, which also operates Roskilde Airport. The airport employs 1700 staff (excluding shops, restaurants etc.)

International airports are looking increasingly futuristic and it's hard to tell them apart. They could offer some interesting photo opportunities, but to me they are just places I want to leave as fast as possible. At least you spent your time well by taking these photos.

Excellent shot and really big eggs :)It is like a map of the world. Love the warm golden tone of the interior light. Excellent quality image.

Zdravo Serghei. Attractive golden hue all over the place creates a welcoming mood and a sense of warmth. Don't know the significance of the quail eggs on the wall but they do add a touch of mystery. Pozdrav. Klaudio.

The large speckled eggs set the scene, though I am not sure what the symbolism is?
And Kastrup Airport does not look too busy?
Thanks for sharing,
PS: The chili pepper roaster was probably wearing his coat from being outside earlier in the morning when the air was colder. Albuquerque, New Mexico gets snow in its mountains in the winter. I think its climate is moderate though not as warm as So Cal.

After just a quick look at the thumbnail I was surprised to see these giant eggs when I opened the picture. But they don't look that appetizing anymore :)
A funny view presented in a good composition.
It seems that many people do like airports. I don't know why I find them usually so boring ...
Best regards, Paul

Two very nice pictures from Kastrup Airport to give an impression of this nice and modern airport. I like the warm colours and the way you included the large sign in the foreground. Thanks for sharing!

I pass through this airport several time back in the eighties, I imagine it has been revamped since then. I like the point of view and the inclusion of the passengers and the luggage trolleys, an essential part of any airport scene. Pleasing warm light and colours. I am not sure what message the giant eggs are intended to convey.

Excellent presentation, wonderful indoor shot and nice capture of the huge eggs, verygood sharpness and interesting graphically, well done.

Un très beau cadrage vertical à partir de l'étage de l'aéroport qui comme tous les autres est violemment éclairé. Observer les gens sans être vu est un sport national très plaisant.

A fine picture even if I do not particularly like airports very much. I really hope that the new terminal will be worth waiting for, as they state here.

i was at Copenhagen Airport for just one week ago but did not see the huge eggs was my first thought. Then i saw that this picture was taken in January..
Funny idea with this giant poster, probably a symbol for waiting on the new terminal:) Warm light and a good note, tfs!
Have a nice evening/

Since joining TE and seeing amny airport pictures, I've come to have much more interest for what they can offer a photographer. Now, they are far from being just another spot along the route, and with long international layovers, they provide some entertainment with anyone carrying a camera. :)
A well chosen spot and smart composition to bring so many different elements together in one frame. Those eggs must produce some huge birds...i mean, look at thei size of those things!! lol Cool shot, maybe I'll get lucky and come across something interesting at SVO?? ;) Have a great week. Take it easy.

I like very much how you combined the fleeting airport scene with the graphism of the poster and the setting in general. Your point of view was great and enabled you to add more graphic details. I like the playful role of all the elements, the composition has a sense of mystery and looks like a riddle. The warm tones all over create a very attractive and delightful impression. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,
