Photographer's Note

In the Gare do Orinet.

One of these days, I was waiting a friend in this station for several minutes. During this time I saw many trains arriving and leaving and took some pictures.
This one is leaving to Porto

I had tryed the White Balance like Direct sunlight +1. With this I have warm tones

I hope you like it !

Gare do Oriente is one of the main transport hubs in Lisbon, Portugal. It was designed by Santiago Calatrava and built by Necso. It was finished in 1998 for the Expo '98 world's fair in Parque das Nações, where it is located.
It encompasses a Lisbon Metro station, a high-speed, commuter and regional train hub, a local, national and international bus station, a shopping centre and a police office.
The station bears considerable resemblance to Calatrava's earlier Allen Lambert Galleria within Toronto's Brookfield Place.
Oriente Station is one of the world's largest stations, with 75 milion passengers per year which makes it as busy as Grand Central Terminal in New York.

Dow Corning Europe played an important part in the largest urban regeneration project in Europe. The company’s construction sealants were used on a number of the key construction projects that are helping to regenerate the Tagus waterfront in the coastal city of Lisbon, Portugal.
The buildings, which were erected for Expo 98, are now fully operational in their long term uses. The specification of Dow Corning sealants for eighty per cent of the glazed facades demonstrates recognition from all the world-class architects involved, of the quality and longevity of Dow Corning products.
