Union Station - Nighttime

Saturday night I was out shooting around Kansas City's Union Station. Built in 1914 it was Kansas City's transportation hub until the end of the rail era.

Abandoned in the 1980's it had seriouly eroded by the mid-1990's. An effort to restore the station to it's original glory was completed in 1999. Now is serves as a community gathering and entertainment venue for the region.

My eye was attracted to the edges and reflections of the exterior lights on the facade and seeing the ceiling detail through the windows.

This is not an HDR, but it is a composite image. The longer exposure is the primary base of the image with a shorter exposure of the portico 'painted' in to balance the exposure of the outer lights with the light from within the building.
