Hoboken Train Station

I've been quite impressed with the output of the Fuji X Pro-1. Just have a look back at my posts for the past two months and you might thnk I'm a fanboy. I'm not, but the camera is really good. I'm always quite impressed with the images after I've optimized them in color, just before I convert them to b/w. So, for a change I thought I'd leave them in color for this post.

A few days ago I went out for a few hours with a buddy and we decided to spend some time in Hoboken, NJ. We walked around the park area that looks out onto the Manhattan skyline, and into the New Jersey Transit station which has been very well preserved.

It was around 9PM on the day before Memorial Day, so the waiting room was almost empty except for a few lonesome travelers. The waiting room was well lit. But I wanted to create a mood of late night gloom.
