#4. Supersonic underground

Supersonic metro

So. I’m in the underground in London and two ladies hop in, dressed in bright yellow. In front of me are other colourful shapes, a blue bag, the green railings, the flashing lights through the windows and on the ceiling. Setting my lens at F/22 gives me a 4 second exposure and this is the result. The highlights were almost pure white so I solarized them to keep the tone similar to the rest of the image. Otherwise, the photo isn’t manipulated. I would love to print this really wide (50 inches) but doubt the file would hold up. Will try 24″ for a (less expensive ;)) start.

Alors me voilà dans une rame du métro de Londres. Deux dames habillées de jaune montent à côté de moi. Devant, il y a un sac bleu, les rails de sécurité verts et d’autres formes colorées. Plus les lumières du plafond et celles de l’extérieur entrant par les fenêtres. F/22 sur l’objectif me donne une pose de 4 secondes et voilà le résultat. Les hautes lumières étant presque totalement blanches, je les ai solarisées pour les ramener dans la même gamme tonale que le reste de l’image, mais à part ça, aucune manipulation. J’adorerais tirer cette image en grand (1m – 1.5m) mais je doute que la qualité le permette. Je commencerai plus modestement avec 60cm 🙂
