Train Station, Antwerp, Belgium

The stunning gridwork of the Antwerp main rail station.

Just off the train in Antwerp, walking up the platform. One of those beautiful European 19th Century train stations. Not every one is like this.

I took this with my iPhone 5s, because all my other equipment was packed and on my back. I tweaked the contrast a little in Lightroom then pulled it into the Silver Efex 2 app to convert it to black and white, which I really like for this photo.

For another great attraction in Antwerp, check out the Plantin Moretus Printing Museum, the only museum that is a Unesco World Heritage site.
