Photographer's Note


Gare Liège Guillemins designed by Santiago Calatrava.

#3 and the last of a mini-series of this famous station. Both celebrating the elegant line play and the spectacular engineering ánd investigating things like the handling of the context and organic metaphors.

Displayed here is the platform area, it showcases the parallelism of the elongated form of the station, of course helped by the shadows.

The Photoshop 7 work stream: altered the saturation, contrast, curves and levels for the whole pic and some elements separately, using different layers, blended the layers, converted to b/w using gradient mapping and differentially tweaking the contrast, USM-ed, added the signature frame, resized and enhanced the edges and did a gentle USM (0,7px, 21%).
