Accelerate by ottoberkeley

This image was captured at Bank Underground Station, which always struck me as ideal for the concept of a blurred train on the underground. Aside from its clean, metallic finish, it’s one of only a few stations in London with curved platforms, which I felt made it perfect for emphasising a sense of perspective as a train came along the tunnel.

The postprocessing workflow for this image was split into two stages: I captured five bracketed exposures early in the morning while the station was empty, and used luminosity masks to achieve a balanced finish for the bright lights and the gritty texture along the platform. I then used separate four-second exposures for the first westbound Central Line train of the morning — one as it pulled into the platform, and another as it departed — and blended these together to produce the final image.

This is the staircase leading from the DLR platform at Bank Underground Station in London.

The image was captured early in the morning, shortly before the city’s busy morning commute began, and edited by blending multiple exposures using luminosity masks.

The View from my Favourite Armchair by Turnipfarmer

Bank-Monument Underground Station, London, England – http://bit.ly/1FZgNen

Busy weekend just gone for me. On Saturday I was busy photographing a wedding with fellow Mark Hepples, got some good photos too and also gave me the chance to try out the awesome Sony A7S which we both hired out! May share a couple of photos with you all sometime.

Anyway, this is an old photo and reworked photo. One of my favourite stations on the London Underground network to photograph although I am sure people who use it on a daily basis for commuting would probably disagree with me as it does get horrendously busy at peak times and often platforms have to be closed off until crowding eases!

Luckily I got a quiet day when I took this photo, something that doesn’t happen very often. I am planning on going down to London this week sometime all being well and looking forward to getting some photos of the new tunnel at Canary Wharf Crossrail station and also at the same time get my new medium format Film camera serviced whilst I down there too.

I hope you are all having a stunning Monday.
