Probably not everybody's cup of tea, but I liked the converging lines & shadow play.

I like the PP, but I think a slight straighten may help - it looks like everything is leaning to the right!

I like that-especially what appears to be sun coming through on the left and making still more shapes.

Hmm I didn't think I was on an angle. Do you mean a straighten to cure the distortion?

Southern Cross Station is a great place to take photos. I don't recall seeing any signs declaring that photography is not permitted but apparently the security folk can be quite vigilant.

Thanks for all the comments guys.

Haha, funny you should mention that, I was there a few weeks ago for a university assignment (I study education at Vic Uni and had to create a lesson plan based on an excursion to southern cross station)

And when I tried to take some photos the staff there were so jumpy I decided not to try....what can I say, those of us with olive complexions and a camera just put people on edge :P

Ah, a common scene at most Aussie train stations.
Nicely shot with the low perspective.
I like the exaggerated contrast/filter effects applied.
Well done Carl.
