Tunnel to the Future Kings Cross

Tunnel to the Future Kings Cross
The Shot

This is a shot from a day trip to London last year. This is part of the Kings Cross St Pancras Underground Station renovation. This tunnel comes off the mainline concourse and leads to 2 underground lines so there are regular floods of people coming from trains. This was taken in a brief break in the flow.

The look is seriously futuristic and will no doubt not look as good when the advertising panels are sold.

As can be seen from the original on my Blog it has a very monochrome look to it.

The picture was taken handheld with a Sony A700 with a Sigma 10-20 wide angle zoom at 10mm. 1 raw image was used to create a false HDR with extra exposures created at 2EV spacing for HDR. Opened in Photoshop first and each image noise reduced with Noiseware Pro and saved as tiffs.

Full details of the processing together with before and after images are on my Blog see Edwin Jones Photography Blog

Note that I have added an update to the end of my Blog post about the Flickr new look with another workaround. This gives an easy way in Firefox and Chrome to get a choice of backgrounds on all individual Photo pages, white, light grey or dark grey.
