Terrific work! Was this manipulated at all? Would love to know the details. Love the colored reflection on the window... very clever perspective... I love it --- either way! #82807

First of all, I cropped the original picture. I have modified the colours (one picture without colors and one with too many blue) of the original picture and then I use the clone tool in Photoshop to add the reflect of the colored picture in the windows of the station... that's all. #309016

Fantastic shot! I like that the background colors are subdued, and I also like the colored reflection in the window. #367466
