Lady in Red

The Santiago Calatrava-designed AV Mediopadana train station in Reggio Emilia, Italy, is "an architectural masterpiece," writes Your Shot member Davide U. At night, he adds, the station's lighting makes it magical. "There are all sorts of people coming and going, and a lot of emotions can be seen in their expressions. It's one of my favorite places to shoot. [That night] I had been waiting a long time, and when I saw the lady in red, I knew I had just found what I was looking for."
