Bank Station Departure Speed FinalBank Station Departure Speed Final

This is a shot I took on the Docklands Light Railway as the train was leaving Bank Underground Station, London and looking out of the back window. The railway is automatic, no driver except a supervisor who sits in one of the front passenger seats. This gives a great opportunity as there are passenger seats at the front and back of the train.

I used a shutter speed of 1/10 second for the movement

The picture was taken with a Sony A700 with a Sigma 10-20 wide angle zoom at 10mm. Taken handheld in RAW. The image was opened in Camera Raw and 2 additional images were created at =2EV and -2Ev for a “false HDR” with each image having Noiseware Pro applied. A Photoshop action I had saved was used to create the extra images automatically.

Photomatix

The 3 images at 2EV separation were outputted in Photomatix fusion surreal 2 preset.

Photoshop

Topaz adjust was used with the stylised presets group with the smooth preset.

Another layer was used for Topaz Adjust to add detail to only the tracks using a layer mask.

Vibrance increased 20 points

Layers flattened before going on to sharpening.

Duplicate layer Noiseware Pro.

Second duplicate layer with mask to apply extra sharpening and contrast with low amount and high radius using Unsharp mask (Clarity Effect) The settings were 30 amount and 30 radius. A layer mask was used to exclude this effect from some highlights.

The crop tool was used so lines came from corners and most of the train windscreen wipers were removed. The rest were removed with the clone tool

Below are the Before and After images. First the original. Then the tonemapped image and then the final result.
