photoblog image The Glow of Davisville Subway Station

The Glow of Davisville Subway Station

Okay so this is a somewhat artistic take on this shot. I was shooting through glass which didn't help and it was raiting so I did my best to avoid water marks on the glass buyt as you can see there's one blob on the right. Neverthe less it's kind of a fun image. I can't remember what I did in photoshop to give it this effect though, sorry! I made this up a while back now.

P.S. I may not have posts for the next few days but i'll be back!

Nice shot. What does 4s here? Strong colours only? I love this "effect" but I can explain in theoretically, in words.
Iain Myrans: Hi thomas, I think you're asking how I did this. Mostly it involved duplicating layers in photoshop and then blending them in different ways at different percentages. Hope that helps! smile Oh, the 4s exposure was used since it was quite dark out and i wanted at much detail in the tracks them selves as possible.
A great atmosphere in this shot - I like !

There's a sub shot I've been waiting to "launch" too tongue This one's awesome
Once upon a time, in a land not so far away (it was really just arround the corner.. I think.. I'm bad with directions...), there was a train. This train was a very good and noble train, but his duties as a train took him away from his beloved station far more often than he would like... One day the train was off working hard, moving people arround, and couldn't make it home to his beloved station before she closed for the night. The station was very upset by this and turned her signals all red... When the train came home the next day, he was distraught, he couldn't get to the station because of the red signals... When the station saw him approaching, she got even angrier and turned up the lights in the station, making it glow bright orange. The train, realising that sadly this was not going to go well, decided to back away from the station, off into the night, traveling and traveling on and on for a long time, distraught himself over what had happened. Distraught about being cast out of his station... Perhaps there is another station waiting for him out there somewhere, where he can finally rest....

Or it's just a nice picture.... who knows...
