St. Pancras

St. Pancras International Railway Station in London is quite a marvel. It's incredible blue-steel train hall, and impressively restored Victorian facade and hotel are both quite remarkable. This newly renovated space is the home to the Eurostar in Great Britain. It is a full international railway terminal and is equipped with immigration desks to process passports in advance of departure (much like "US Pre-Customs" in many Canadian airports). It is by far the most impressive railways station I've ever been in.

This 3-frame tonemapped HDR shows some of the beauty of this station, including it's amazing sculptures and public art. Even if you're not taking the Eurostar, drop into this station for a look next time you are in London.

haven't mentioned i love this one yet. i especially like the contrast between the single tone inanimate bronze statue and the vibrant pink and very alive flower on the desk across the way. (at least it appears to be real...)
Iain Myrans: The best part is I think the artist that did the statue is Canadian.
