Mainz train station - my train was about 15 minutes late leaving so I played with the camera while waiting.

Not a whole lot of cropping at all - just enough to straighten and evenly balance the shot. And I like the bird there - in my old age, I've discovered that perfect symmetry is best done with an offsetting element or two. But that's just me.

i really like this shot. I like the not-so-perfect symmetry of it (the sign and the bird in particular). Just enough irregularity to add interest!

Really like the viewpoint - dead centre and looking up works for me!

Awesome leading lines and perspective here, Deb.....
It really does lead one right into the image.....
So much to see, yet, it does not look busy..... I like it.

Ahhhh, I had to look for the bird, but I'm glad I found it. It adds much interest. I love the lines and angles of this photo. All the shades of grayscale make this such a perfect black and white photo.

Very nice. I could look at BW architecture type of shots all day. This is well done.

Your obsession with German train stations grows ever stronger!!!

I love the symettry of this shot (you should have shooed that pidgeon away!!!) and the really harsh whiteness coming through the skylight (Is this wonderfully reflected behind the platform sign or is it another section)

Not sure how much cropping went on but I do like the effect

Cool - this could have been a symmetry entry - except the bird might have gotten you a lot of DNMCs :) [that is a bird on that beam, right?]
