  • Your striking, original, so empty though atmospheric composition of this city underground passage with those beautiful complimentary colours and shapes just keeps my eye sweeping around. Lovely, you win this round !

  • This underpass connects the bus station to the 1936 ExpoCenter City (Berlin Messegelände), in Berlin, Germany. It has grown into an iconic location after serving as one of Hollywood’s favourite backdrops, in Berlin. The partial list of movies which feature a scene shot here include: The Bourne Supremacy, Hanna , The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2, Captain America: Civil War, and Atomic Blonde. Needless to say, it's been photographed countless times. My personal take was shot with a Sony α6500. In post-processing, I just colour-graded the image and straightened the perspective. This picture was also selected as best Urbex photo of the year 2018, on 500px, but I am particularly proud to have caught the attention of IShotIt's judges, to whom I wish to express my gratitude. https://iso.500px.com/favorite-photos-2018-part-1/

  • This is such a strong reportage image, so illustrative of this amazing railway station, i guess somewhere in Bangladesh sometime ago. I wonder what (pilgrimage) has drawn such a huge crowd of men only.

  • Great city center atmosphere here with surprisingly little traffic. The plunging view highlights the road and its painted writing, the result is unusual.

  • Beautiful Krakov light and an unusual very low angle makes this somewhat mysterious.

  • Well here is a city! Once again Dubai’s unreal skyline takes a place in this theme. But this shot might have done better with a little less post intervention.
