London Underground Like the Hair

December 04, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

This shot was taken at  Oxford Circus Station on the Victoria line.

The picture was taken with a Sony A700 with a Sigma 10-20 wide angle lens at 10mm. Shutter Speed was 1/8 second for the train movement.

The main image was processed initially in Camera Raw. I also processed a false HDR and brought that in with a layer mask only on the 2 people in the foreground to make them stand out. The blur tool was used on the people in the background and a viginette added. The image was cropped for better composition
