This is a shot from a day trip to London last year. The shot is taken on the Angle Station of a branch of the Northern Line It is a quite a photogenic spot thanks to the especially wide platform.

The picture was taken handheld with a Sony A700 with a Sigma 10-20 wide angle zoom at 10mm. I used ISO 200 to gain a fairly low shutter speed of 1/5th second to get the movement in the train in the original.

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. The images were saved as tiffs.  

Photomatix

Outputted in Photomatix to Fusion adjusted.

Photoshop

Topaz Adjust Vibrant preset group Dramatic 2 preset was used to bring in more detail.

Vibrance increased slightly 12 points

Hue Saturation Reds and yellows only saturation was increased a little.

Layers flattened before going on to sharpening.

First duplicate layer Noiseware Pro and a little sharpening

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 22 amount and 22 radius. A mask was used to partly exclude the effect from highlights.

Crop for better composition. Selection and then fill with black to remove the distracting Way Out sign
