Since nearly thirty years we are traveling between the Belgium and the Balkans.
If there is a road that we know well, it's this one which is traced in Serbia from Batrovci to Dimitrovgrad.
From Nis to Dimitrovgrad, the road is the E80, don't be fooled, it's just a two way road on which passes all traffic from Europe to the Balkans and the Middle East.
In parallel, a single railway track follows the same route and is punctuated by small rural stations.
These stations have seen the famous Orient-Express.
This mythical train no longer exists, the stations are still present but for how long?

An abandoned house is more interesting in black and white, I think. It adds seriousness and mystery.

nice shot here. Presented cleverly in monochrome. I think it suit the image a lot. There are scope for more sharpness but overall it is a nice one. Good POV. Niceld contrasting tone. A nice composition. Tfs.

Bonjour Patrick ,
L'atmosphère un peu nostalgique de ctte gare abandonnéeest ranforcée par l'utilisation du N&B . Tout bon cadrage . peut être un petit manque de netteté ?
PS : Pour la question sur mon post précédent , j'avais utilisé un HDR léger .

Digitally aged image of an old train station and the nice oldie worldie touch to this pic which absolutely suited in mono. A sad looking white elephant that says so much about the past glory serving the famous Orient Express Train. There's nothing like a steam train ride and routing around the paraphernalia on the station that goes with steam trains! Great shot - strong image even the sign on door is still there! I love seeing pictures that give me a glimpse into another world and this is one of them. A very well captured and presented, Congrats and tfs

This is a long time thirty year, to the Balkan every year.
A pity that a lot houses in the rural areas in a ruins change.
Also stations disappear but also in Belgium disappear the old stations as solution for the files!
Black and white presentation is superb.
Excellent composition, nice captured.
Very well done, TFS.
