Piccadilly Line Empty Carriage

Piccadilly Line Empty Carriage
The Shot

This shot was taken on my last London visit in February, As anybody who travels on the underground will know getting a totally empty carriage is as rare as winning the lottery. I upped my chances by traveling to the northern terminal of the Piccadilly line at Cockfosters Station. In the middle of the day it was pretty quite so getting the empty carriage was quite easy.

The picture was taken handheld with a Sony A700 with a Sigma 10-20 wide angle zoom at 10 mm. IOS was at 500 to gain a higher shutter speed in the dim lighting. The 0EV image was at 1/50th.

There were 3 raw images 2EV spacing for HDR. Opened in Photoshop first and each image noise reduced with Noiseware Pro and saved as tiffs.

This picture was enhanced with HDR processing followed by Topaz Adjust and Photoshop to bring in more detail. Processing included bringing in the 0EV image to adjust some areas using layer masks.

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