Railroad HDR Photography Highlights

Ada Louise Huxtable, an architecture critic, who received the Pulitzer Prize, once said: “Nothing was more up-to-date when it was built, or is more obsolete today, than the railroad station.” Indeed, railroad has been the symbol of the whole epoch, representing the human advance in technology and industrial development. Today, the world has changed a lot, but railroads still remain important and popular not only for delivering goods from one place to another, but also for delivering certain symbolic messages through visual art works, like HDR photographs, presented below.

With the meaningful details, pointed and emphasized by HDR technique, railroad photographs, included into this showcase, are filled with the spirit of changes and some delicate shades of nostalgic feelings. Railroad itself is perceived as the symbol of eternity and endlessness for it has no beginning and no end. Railroad stations can be treated as the signs of waiting, expectations, and hopes. Finally, railroad locomotives and cars are often featured at the photographs to express the heritage and former achievements, which created a reliable basement for our further progress and development.

Though, there is one more special quality, possessed by railroads, which has always attracted the attention of photographers. It is the versatility and diversity of railroad images. Railroad can personify progress and stagnation, loneliness and busyness, melancholy and joy… Cruzine has collected these HDR railroad photos to open up as many faces of the railroad as possible. Enjoy the photography, experience the feelings shared via the railroad photographs, and find the inspiration for your own creative works!

After trying myself in multiple spheres, I have decided that the bigger part of my soul clearly votes for the humanitarian sciences and art. Thus, following the call of my soul and mind I received the University education and now I am fully involved in multiple web activities. I am deeply interested in the novel web technologies, design, content development and management, optimization and marketing.
