Sao Bento train station in Porto

This photo was taken close to midnight. It was close to a minute exposure and as long as people were moving, they would not be in the photo. The train station is so beautiful, people do stand for a bit in one place. I can’t blame them. It was absolutely stunning. The tiles tell a story and it takes a while to look at them.
Stunning - you wouldn't want to leave

Fantastic shot. I don't even see ghost shadows of the people that moved through.

What an amazing station, I love the architecture of some of these wonderful train stations in Europe.

Im fascinated by how the camera appears to lie by wiping out the moving people on a long exposure. To me it seems like magic even though I know why it happens. The station is a really grand and fascinating architecture, yet the one person remaining appears to be staring intently on the arrivals/departure board (naturally). I rather like that bit of irony.

Beautiful job with the long exposure and gorgeous spot. Looks a bit on a tilt though

So elegant! And quite sharp. Great work to remove the people (most of them) through long exposure.

@jgpittenger Its aligned with the floor horizontally and not with the columns. It was taken at 32mm but at a very low POV and looking up a little, so there is some distortion as a result. Its a personal thing, but I think it adds to the “grandness” of the space. Thanks for your comments.

That is an amazing building for a railway station. It's good to see it with just one person - it conveys the vastness of the hall.
