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.
In 1891, the Goodenham family commissioned , David Roberts, to build them a grander office space at a cost of $18,000. Toronto’s Flatiron preceded New York’s famous Flatiron Building by more than ten years..
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.
