[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This image is not a panorama made with stitching several shots. its one shot posted for Suzle of the historic depot.
The San Jose Diridon station is planned as a future station for the California High-Speed Rail and second phase of BART extension in Santa Clara County. The depot is in the Italian Renaissance Revival style, with a three-story central section flanked by two-story wings.
The building was designed by Southern Pacific architect, John H. Christie, who had worked on the Southern Pacific remodeling of the Fresno depot in 1915 and later, in 1939, worked on Union Station in Los Angeles. This depot is one of only four Italian Renaissance Revival style depots in California, and the largest surviving depot of the San Francisco–San Jose line. The only other large depot built in California during the 1930s was the Los Angeles Union Passenger Terminal.
I shot many photos at the Diridon station for a project at work. Note that the camera is facing west, at the same time, I took another shot of the scene behind me and the blue sky was just amazing. Engoy

Hi Vic,
An interesting dusk landscape shot with good use of the blue hour.
I like the warm cast of the artificial lights in the street leading to such a splendid architectural structure.
A very sharp and neat nocturnal presentation in this panoramic frame.
My best regards,

Francis Xavier

Very nice capture of the blue hour. Good details for a 30-second exposure, I should try using longer exposure sometimes. Wonderful colors. Looks a little tilted, otherwise, well done, tfs.

Hi Vic, Very nice composition of this dust time hour image. The long exposure works well for the clarity and the dramatic of the night scenery. Great timing for capturing this moment as one can still see the touch of the sunshine in the BG mixes with the dark blue night sky. Thank for sharing
