Frankfurt, Germany – Flughafen (Airport)

From the very cool Frankfurt Airport…this area is located near the DB (Deutsche Bahn) long distance trains. Looking to head to Berlin, Zurich, Prague? Book your reservation and make sure you have a designated seat! Many times I have booked my reservation without a seat #. I have had to move around and even one time sit in the area in-between the train cars….oh so comfortable! My favorite are the ICE trains with the dining car! Always nice to stop by get and grab a frankfurter while on the ride! I really wish we had a nice train system in the US. I love traveling by train in Europe. So beautiful! The effect of the photo was helped by “Urban Sickness” filter on onOne’s new and amazing Perfect Effects plug in.

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!
