Photo - Echoes of the past by tigaer Photo - Echoes of the past by tigaer
shot was taken at leipzig hauptbahnhof, saxony - eastern germany. i know that place from even back in the times where the wall was still present... and hell... times can change soooo damn much. it's frightening and fascinating at the same time. that train station must be the CLEANEST in complete germany, now after a renovation. when the speakers give info about the next departures you feel reminded on some futuristic space ports... with laaaaaarge halls... voices and sounds echoing from every corner. most impressive. but we're still bound to earth so it is still 'just' a train station. ;p - i wanted to get that shot some sort of melancholic look so the original was a b&w shot. i took it into PS... added some more noise and a sepia look. now it looks exactly the way i wanted it to be.

enjoy.

happy viewing...

was für ein tolles stahlgerüst, ich glaub da muss ich mal hin =)
schade find ich, dass die rechte ecke so schwarz ist, fänd ich besser, wenn man das gerüst dort auch noch gesehen hätte =)

I've been in that trainstation not long ago - less than a month - and it totally surprised me. We don't have that kind of stuff in Portugal; it's so beautiful, impressive actually.

amazing capture by the way

leipzig hat tatsächlich wirklich schnöne ecken... aber leider is in den randgebieten auch sehr viel eingefallenes, nicht schönes. die gegend um den bahnhof rum brauch sich aber vor anderen grossstädten echt nich zu verstecken.

Erinnert mich an den Münchner Hauptbahnhof. Der sieht fast genauso aus... Aber ansonsten ein sehr schönes Bild. Auch sehr melankolisch angehaucht - die Zukunft der Vergangenheit die irgend wann mal die Ewigkeit wird.

...but you still can't stop it looking retro-spacy. A nice effect. We had our town's station renovated a few years ago, replacing the old victorian pigeon mansion. It's cool and space-age but the walls are blue tiles, like public toilets somebody once said to me. The truth is you can't get better than the old tough iron structures like this.

Amazing, truely. A nice 'unsharp mask' filter would have improved the clarity slightly.
Just great though, fair play

Hm.... I wish time would change a bit faster in Hungary too! Most of all in Budapest at the West- East- and South- Train Stations. Probably most of you know what an important role Hungary played helping to knock down The Wall. But we still have our dirty train stations! It's all the more a pity because the West Train Station in Budapest is a beautiful constuction designed by the Eiffel Company. It would cerainly be comparable with the train station in Lepzig if it had been so perfectly rennovated. One gets to understand slowly what the German expression 'Muster Ländle' means....
