Fotoeins Friday: Christmas rush aesthetic, Leipzig Hbf

Inspired by a similar photograph in a hotel room, I’m at Willy-Brandt-Platz at the bus- and tram-stop in front of the Westhalle at Leipzig Hauptbahnhof (Central Station). I’m deliberate in experimenting with photographs made over a variation in settings. What I like is the tram moving into the frame from the left, the light stripes parallel to the lines of the building in the background, and leading to the waiting crowds at the right. And the Christmas consumer streak continues …

cmp.ly customThanks to Leipzig Tourismus und Marketing GmbH (LTM) and InterCityHotel Leipzig for their kind hospitality. Access to public transport was kindly provided by LTM and the MDV Mitteldeutscher Verkehrsverbund regional transport authority. I made the photo above on 2 December 2014 with the Canon 6D, EF 24-105 zoom-lens, and the following settings: 1/4s, f/4, ISO640, 28mm focal length.
