That's a great shot. Those old train stations have an elegance and character you just don't see in modern buildings, and you captured them beautifully. Nice work.

Nice work . I always have trouble shooting interiors of train stations due to low light conditions. I photographed the interior of NY's Grand Central station a few weeks ago. Not bad for a handheld shot. Had to open the F-stop a bit, and it needed a lot of "tweeking" in photoshop. Do you use a tripod?

Yeah, that one was handheld. But there was a lot of tweeking involved. Had to work a little with perspective, and a lot with curves.

The sharpness on yours is remarkable, considering the blur of moving people indicates a very slow shutter speed. You very nicely captured all that cavernous space, which is what makes shots like that work.

On mine, I kicked up the ASA to 1600, and used a faster shutter.

Yes, Barbarian, very significant building with a lot of memories it seems, some being bitter though.
Your shot brings lots of sense from the edifice along with the one from BEECE (thanks to you both). Once again I am in awe feeling the neo classical breath in the beautiful architecture.
The only thing I'd like to add about your shot, Barbarian, I wish you could place the entire arch into the frame, although this meant a little sacrifice from the floor. It would seem even cuter with the following engaged columns and the further second arch, I believe.

The whole arch is in this one:

Very nicely conveying the beautiful architecture, though I did not find the presence of the lovely kiosk very contributory!
I must admit I'm still under the influence of your first shot in which the angle was really charming.
As a matter of fact, it seems one can never get bored with shooting or watching the shots of this building.
The architect deserves a praise here also:-)

This is the exterior, btw. I was there on a very dreary and dark afternoon, so it's a little drab. But in some ways, it emphasizes the ponderous style of the building.

That's a very beautiful capture Barbarian, which increased my admiration for the edifice and its architect. Your shot almost has a profession tone. There's little missing part of the edifice on the right, my eyes intended to see, but that's allright.

An interesting point came to my attention about the architecture is that, although the pediment signals the facade of the classical order, there I see an extension building projecting just from under the pediment..
