Clapham Common Duel Tube {EXPLORED Oct 17th 2011}

Clapham Common Duel Tube {EXPLORED Oct 17th 2011}
On Saturday 15th October I took a Photographic day trip to London, about 1 hour 40 minutes from home by train.

This is Clapham North, one of few underground stations in London where trains travelling in opposite directions can be caught from the same platform which makes for a great photo with a wide angle lens. I think the only other Station like this is Clapham North also on the Northern Line. The trains on this line also have some great bright colours.

It is normally quite difficult to catch 2 trains moving at the same time. I struck lucky as I got this shot about 5 minutes after getting there. I stayed there for another 40 minutes taking pictures but didn’t get it again.

I think that permits are required for professional photography but casual photographs are allowed but no tripods and no flash.

The picture was taken with a Sony A700 with a Sigma 10-20 wide angle zoom at 10mm. Taken handheld at 1000 ISO and at 1/6 of a second. There was a handy bench to sit on in the middle of the platform which helps to keep steady.

I originally took this as 3 images for HDR but this didn’t come out too well with too much difference from the train movement so I decided to go for just one exposure. I choose the +2 EV image which had more movement in the trains and adjusted exposure in Raw and used recovery, clarity and vibrance adjustments


Photoshop

General adjustments in levels and curves to enhance with layer masks to exclude the highlight areas

Vibrance layer was decreased by 10 points.

Hue Saturation adjustment layer yellows increased and mask used to apply it only to the yellow lines and ceiling.

Second saturation adjustment layer used to increase blue saturation, slightly reduce the reds and slightly reduce overall with the master.

Original image 0V copied in as new layer with layer mask and used replace the people as that copy had a faster shutter speed and less movement.

Noiseware Pro

Unsharp Mask a little sharpening.

Duplicate layer with mask to apply extra sharpening with low amount and high radius to the platform, ceiling and small parts of the trains for extra contrast

Reached EXPLORE 392 for 17th October 2011
