Hi Luis,

Very nice series in B&W with feeling. Old buildings or structures like this
quite often give a much nicer feeling of their majesty when shot in B&W. I
think unless there?s a very high level of colour that?s almost hurting the
eyes, it?s best to shoot B&W as you did here.


I would imagine using a 12 or 15mm lens in here would create an incredible
perspective of what one feels standing in the station. 


I don?t recall this station when I was there shooting the ?92 Summer
Olympics but then we didn?t have much time for looking around the city once
the Games started.
