    Hi !

    A few miles from where I live is the abandonned railway station of Groenendael.
    Today I went there for a photoshoot, in lovely sunny but very cold weather.

    It is sad to see what looks to be a well preserved old station being used for graffiti rather than turning it into something useful.

    Hi Pete,

    no secret in there : it's manipulation in Corel PSP Pro X2.
    The original was in colour, that I converted into a B/W with an IR effect, and then gave it a touch of sepia, with the photo aging effect set to 10 years.

    The second pic received the same threatment.

    C U,
