Curves lines and delays

By Richsr
Many thanks to Pete for the EC and Malc for the GEA, Woodrow, woolybill1, Al, Ken, Ron for their UA very much appreciated.
Thanks also to everyone who commented.

During a 1.5 hour delay due to signaling failure on the east coast main line into Kings cross last Sunday, I had a chance to try and capture the new station concourse and great roof.
Hand held and the lighting has a large stop range too so not easy to control

Thanks for looking.

Regards Richard

Brilliant! I haven't seen this structure 'in the flesh' yet but the images of it have been fascinating - they seem to divide into the broad sweeping compositions and the abstract details. This is the best broad, sweeping composition that I have seen, it relates the curve of the handrail and gallery to the curves of the roof. Plus all those anonymous little human ants...

Richard -- a wonderful architectural. I would never has guessed that you did this hand held. You've chosen the perfect POV to get a very good composition here. The colors and lighting are very appealing as well.
Nice one.

I think it would also work well as a square - cropped from the left - making the curves a greater focus

Great colours and sinuous curves which you have included beautifully. I like the hand rail placement to lead the eye in. The exposure is well chosen to show the lighting detail. Looks like interactive sculpture!
