The roof of Southern Cross Railway Station

Southern Cross Railway station in Melbourne is one of the city's main railway stations and the terminus for many country trains, including that from Geelong.

The design focus of the 2006 redevelopment of the station, is the wave like roof, of 60,000 sq m, that covers an entire city block. Designed by Grimshaw Architects the roof's form plays a crucial role as part of the environmental envelope of the structure.

This photograph was taken with an Olympus Pen EP-3, using an Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 9-18 mm f3.5-5.6 set at 9mm (18 mm equivalent in 35mm language!), with f4 stop and +/- 2EV exposure bracket at ISO 200. The resultant HDR image shows the expansive nature of the roof very well - ideal subject for the new very wide angle lens.
