Köln, Germany – Köln Hauptbahnhof (HDR)

Before heading to Germany a few weeks back, my good friend Kay Gaensler mentioned that there is an App for the Deutsche Bahn (Trains) in Germany for the IPhone.   It is called DB Navigator.   A wonderful an easy to use app!  After I downloaded I opened up the app and you first see of photo of a Train Station (Hauptbahnhof).  When I met up with Kay, he told me that the photo was the Köln Hauptbahnhof.  Great….as I knew was going to be there the end of that week.  I wanted to take the exact shot!  Here is the photo from the app…

Close!  I did shot it in HDR and thought a selective color might look cool.  Technology can give you photo inspiration!  LOL   Have fun and go get that picture you want to take!   Its out there!

  2. Don’t you wish the US had a trains like Europe has? With the way the airlines are shafting us lately, a rail system in the US would be popular. Alas, the current system is a mess.

    BTW, I recently tried to replicate flickr photos on my last trip to Walt Disney World on a par as you did here. It’s not as easy as it looks. 🙂

    Good one, Pete! You should sell this to the German rail system. Wonder how our MetroRail would look using selective color???
