Photographer's Note

Before continuing with the Kφln pics, first one shot with my new cam, an Oly 8080. I have used it for two days now and am totally smitten with its capabilities.

Displayed here is the Rijnhaven subway station of the Rotterdam Erasmus metro line.
A Bombardier built new standard trainset is just leaving. With a sharp left curve it will descend steeply to enter the underground line stretch under the river Maas and on to its terminus under Rotterdam Central Station.
The above ground stations of the Erasmus line are strictly functional grey concrete behemoths with debatable aesthetics. So I turned the big lens 180 dgr to show you the platform with it’s elegant lighting poles and the ‘1989’ an award winning apartment building from Mecanoo architects. It’s a slender social housing complex with all of its apartments orientated toward the sun and the Rijnhaven docks. Behind it apartment buildings on the Laan Op Zuid. The buildings are part of the HilleKop / Kop van Zuid developments.

PS-E2 tech: cropped, levels & contrast adjusted (whole pic and the sky), saturation & hues (master, yellows, blues & greens) adjusted, sharpened two times, frame added and saved for the web.
