Night in Beijing by tchebotarev

Beijing has been good to me. Blue skies, perfect weather, lots of tourists (to make it feel like I’m, you know, in China), and celebration of China’s birthday. Had a great experience seeing the sunset in financial district with all the amazing architecture around us. Thank you my friends!

Electric Beijing by JulienFolcher

It’s raining today, so I decided to revisit some old raw files I haven’t developed… I took this as an editing exercise. On the last 3 images I uploaded here (this one included) I am trying to not use the clarity slider in Lightroom , I tend to dislike the “HDR” look it gives to the images more and more, especially the dark or light traces it leaves around the edges.
Here I tried to make up for the clarity with a contrast adjustment layer and very specific dodge and burn.
This is an experiment, so let me know what you think or how you deal with this issue on Lightroom and Photoshop.

Cheers

Another World by Turnipfarmer

Abandoned Ghost Station Tour) Jubilee Line Charing Cross Underground Station, London, England – http://ift.tt/V5qrF7

My first photo from the ‘Hidden London’ Charing X tour organised by the London Transport Museum.

Last Friday I went down to London primarily for this tour and do a few other bits of photography. The tour was excellent, by far my favourite too that the LTM have organised.

This part of the station was closed off when the Jubilee line was closed off when the Jubilee extension opened and was no longer required. London Underground still turn and stable trains here so I suppose its still partly used, just not to the general public.

Its very surreal that a massive part of Charing Cross station is closed and hidden away from public eye, some of you may pass by the two doors and fake wall that hides these set of escalators. Also some of you maybe thinking that you recognise this station and you would be right, this Ghost station was used in the latest bond film Skyfall and also Horror film called Creep as well as many more.

I am trying to work out what the orange and yellow patches are here, I have not found them in any other stations although I think they are tactile strips to help people who are visually impaired get around on the London Underground, they often test things here before rolling them out to other stations.

I could have spent hours down here but unfortunately I only had one so I got as many photos as I could possible get.
