Clapham Tube Twin Trains

Clapham Tube Twin Trains
This is Clapham Common, one of the 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 Stations like this are Clapham North also on the Northern Line and a small part of Shepherds Bush station on the Cental Line. The trains on this line also have some great bright colours.

No mirror image or other fiddling. It was a matter of waiting 20 minutes for 2 trains to be moving at once. The lady on her smartphone was a bonus. The picture was taken with a Sony A700 with a Sigma 10-20 wide angle zoom at 10mm. Taken handheld at 0.5 of a second.

No HDR this time and I started by adjusting exposure in Raw and used recovery, clarity and vibrance adjustments.

In Photoshop general adjustments in brightness, levels and curves to enhance with layer masks to exclude the highlight areas. Hue Saturation adjustment layer yellows and reds increased. Topaz Clarity and DeNoise were also used.

I don't think it would have the same impact without the static area in the centre. As it is it really packs a punch.
Are LU more relaxed about photography on the tube now? There was a time when they were very anti - maybe because of terrorist risks. I suppose that now nobody can control it, as most phones have cameras.
