Look Up

Look Up. Emerging through the spacious entrance of the Potsdamer Platz S-bahn station in Berlin I couldn't resist this view of the tall modern buildings through the lattice roof of the station. There was some warm mid-morning sun on the reddish bricks, and open clouds in the blue sky, all of which made for a good conversion to monochrome to emphasise the dramatic angular shapes. The disembodied feet in the bottom-right corner are part of a tall sculpture, something we don't see much of in the crowded London Underground! Unusually for me I used the 50mm lens, stopped down to give good depth of field.

Technical: NIKON D800, f=50.0 mm, ISO320, 1/200 sec @ f11.0
