Estacio de Franca, Barcelona

Barcelona, Estacio de Franca
When in Barcelona in January we stumbled upon the French Station, an impressive but under-used terminus which is in remarkably clean condition. Compared to the sprawl of commercialism that surrounds a typical London station, the original architecture has been nicely preserved and cleaned. The train shed is a beautiful structure.

The photo was rather dull due to the weather being cloudy. So I have tweaked it a bit in Aperture and the result is almost a pseudo HDR effect. I basically adjusted the shadows and highlights to bring out details that would otherwise be invisible.
