Sheffield S1 | Sheffield Railway Station

Sheffield Railway Station, formerly Pond Street Station and later Sheffield Midland Station was listed in 1975 as an English Heritage Grade II listed building.  Built with simultaneous construction phases between 1836-1840 by both the North Midland Railway and Midland Counties Railway the station served as a terminus for the then new direct route to London via Chesterfield.

Viewed from west and with a little bit of tilt shift trickery the railway station (along with the bus station) can be seen looking like something from a model train set HERE

Sheffield Railway Station made a location appearance in the political TV drama A Very British Coup.  Filmed in 1988 it stared Ray McAnally as a Sheffield steel worker and trade unionist who becomes Prime Minister. Back in the ’80s Sheffield was often called The Socialist Republic of South Yorkshire.

Outside of London, Sheffield Railway Station is the 11th busiest railway station in the country.

    1. Thank you. It’s not often possible to get a photo outside (or inside for that matter!) of the station without any people around so I think that helps to give it some atmosphere.
      The tilt shift images are a bit of fun and probably not terribly well done but I enjoyed making them. With tilt shift I found that certain subjects worked really well while others simply didn’t work at all. As you might be aware from my blog posts, tilt shift isn’t something I’ve given much time to since then…
      I hope you have managed to get out with your camera today to enjoy the moments of sunshine.
      Best wishes
      Mr C 🙂

      1. . Did you use a tilt shift lens or was it PShopped? I have had a look at it myslef, but got nothing worthy, as it is ideal for an urban landscape. I have not yet managed to get out yet, pottering, gardening a little, maybe after sunday dinner for a sunset.
        I hope are enjoying the spring weather too.

      2. They were tilt shifted in photoshop. I suspect I’d have very limited use for a tilt shift lens but it was nice to play around in photoshop and achieve half decent results.
        Today I managed to get out to photograph the Phlegm mural on Eye Witness Works. Weekdays there are always parked cars in front of it. Today I struck lucky with the weather and by chance there were no cars. Light wise there is quite a narrow window of opportunity where the mural has direct light on it without shadows of street furniture or other buildings. I’m reasonably happy with the shots I’ve captured and they will no doubt pop up on Postcard Cafe in the near future…
