The historic Madison/Wabash station, looking south on the Loop platform.Madison is one of the few remaining examples of early Loop design and in my opinion one of the most interesting stations in Chicago.Nestled among all these skyscrapers with wooden floor and many ornamentations resembling the Baroque looks like it would be from other era.I hope you´ll like it as much as I did.

This is one of the things I remember best from Chicago. The old subway going above the streets, where it also creates a nice contrast some places against some of the new skyscrapers. So I think this illustrates the city very good. With a nice perspective and POV. Well done to keep the sun away.

Ciao dear Krzysztof,
photo very complicated and difficult to capture, but here, you have really shown to be an excellent photographer. The photo quality is impressive, especially the perfect sharpness and the good management of the light that allows us to see even the shadow detail. Fantastic the feeling of the DOF, thanks to the perspective of the lines. Excellent work, congratulations!
Ciao, have a nice Wednesday!

the view of the empty Madison station is excellent with the man to waiting the coming train.The perspective is fine as the light and the colour management of the image.

nice the view as the perspective of the Madison station with the clarity and the sharpness of it to be superb.I like the light as the colour management of the image.
annjackman (13195) 2011-11-11 8:58
I like the empty feeling of this station and its position beside the crowded buildings. You have captured the perspective very well and my eye is taken along the rails into the distance. A very well managed photo.
marcan44 (6223) 2011-11-12 14:42
eccezionale scatto di una stazione in mezzo ai grattacieli di Chicago.
Ottimo gioco di luci e ombre, eseguito con tecnica perfetta.
ChrisJ (86862) 2011-11-13 2:28
Very good use of diminishing linear perspective & vanishing point here, with the converging rail lines & platform. Good to have a train on the vp too! Good sharpness & framing. Tfs!
ashres (1453) 2011-11-14 7:37
Its a great shot of this train league in a very nice perspective view. The frame is nicely composed and the light is great with nice depth. Great capture,
have a great week,
raszid62 (18200) 2011-11-15 8:08
bardzo ciekawe ujęcie,; dworzec nieco w stylu retro w centrum nowoczesnego miasta. Świetne naturalne kolory i rewelacyjna jakość fotografii.
Longroute (19390) 2011-11-16 0:47
An intriguing composition. Stations are a good photographic subject. I like the long perspective given by the rails here and the sight of the building at the left. A good management of the light and an excellent clarity.
fabianoleite (9016) 2011-11-19 9:55
Good view of the train station, also showing part of the cityscape with modern and ancient buildings together. Good work, congratulations!
lakshmip1949 (19110) 2011-11-22 7:58
A nice composition of this train station showing the lines converging at the other end. The image is well lit with nice depth and perspective. I lived in Chicago for 1 year but neve rode the train.
peppe59 (14547) 2011-11-22 8:18
exceptional image quality that lets you see every detail, excellent depth, very interesting.
ikeharel (37316) 2011-11-23 2:26
City view from tracks, a POV every commuter see daily, very clear in details, Krzysztof.
A "busy" picture with no sky except for a partial mirror, and with many architecture's styles within.
A good light and depth collected well.
vrabieionut (2189) 2011-11-25 23:01
An empty platform is always photogenic. I actually like this without the train.Beautiful composition and perfect framing.
How fast it goes by rail in U.S.?
Have a nice weekend,

Excellent image with spectacular lines of flight and a great perspective! Great graphic style, light and masterly definitions! Beautiful juxtaposition of the contrasting styles of the station and the skyscrapers on the bottom! Bravissimo!
Best regards, Nino.

mauro61 (52527) 2012-02-17 2:18
prospettiva ben colta all'interno di questa stazione praticamente deserta.
ottima la relazione tra luci e ombre con i grattacieli che sembrano incombere sulle rotaie,
mvdisco (16456) 2012-03-14 8:08

So beautiful. Good composition and recording.
Thanks for sharing
marina7 (5822) 2012-05-14 11:01
the perspective here is simply fantastic! It gives a sense of speed even without a train moving by. Love the light and shadow combination, a very successful shot.
alpi1500 (1376) 2012-05-29 6:16
Nice depth and excelent POV.
Have a nice day.
Robert1969 (6230) 2012-09-03 13:12
A picture with a lots and lots of diagonal
lines (great point of view and composition)
Not only the rails, also the roofs of the
trainstation and the "lines" of the windows
and even the buildings. Also nice is the
color-tone. Light management is also great:
there no hard shadows or overlighted pieces.
abmdsudi (26233) 2012-11-19 8:40
A picturesque impression of this urban train station with spectacular composition and flanked by concrete jungle. The long perspective and extensive depth created by the strong diagonal lines lead the eyes constantly to infinity. But I really enjoy the sense of space and great distance effect, in fine colors, sharpness and the overall contrast. A delightful image well taken. Congrats.
serp2000 (29188) 2012-11-23 3:00
An interesting urban composition, good perspective. Splendid colours combination of the glass & concrete. Well done.
Best wishes and have a good weekend!
