Ascent to the Light Southgate Underground

Ascent to the Light Southgate Underground

Another shot taken on the northern part of the Piccadilly Line, London. This one is of Southgate Station. Like many others on this part of the line this station was built in the 1930s and has a lot of Art Deco design.

For a change I went for mono in this image which I felt worked best. I got lucky with the figure ideally placed at the top of the stairs and the processing aimed to emphasise that. With all the enhancement processing I used masks to remove any of that from the people coming down the stairs so they remained in the shadows and did not detract from the central figure.
