Ascent to the Light Southgate Underground

Ascent to the Light Southgate Underground
The Shot
Another shot taken on the northern part of the Piccadilly Line, London. This one is of Southgate Station. Like many others on this part of the line this station was built in the 1930s and has a lot of Art Deco design.

For a change I went for mono in this image which I felt worked best. I got lucky with the figure ideally placed at the top of the stairs and the processing aimed to emphasize that. With all the enhancement processing I used masks to remove any of that from the people coming down the stairs so they remained in the shadows and did not detract from the central figure.

The picture was taken handheld with a Sony A700 with a sigma 10-20 wide angle zoom at 10mm. I took 3 pictures for HDR but in the end used just 0EV image with a little RAW, Topaz and Photoshop editing to enhance
