Quote: any tips :o)

Set you camera to shutter speed, take a few random photos to see how long your exposure can be without any burning on viewing with high lights. Enable bracketing, set to +0.7, -0.7 wait for a train, when it comes rip out the tripod, take as many photos as possible, lastly wait for the London Underground staff to arrive and reprimand you or remove you from the underground for using a tripod (it is a health hazard). In my case speak Afrikaans (I am South African) act like a tourist who does not understand English Wink
Hope this helps and good luck

Fabulous image Marc, I love these shots of yours from the underground, they are very emotive to me.
Like your method of dealing with the staff ...I got told off for using a camera when there earlier this year, they put an announcement out on the public address system! (not as embarrassing as the time I got told off for using flash photography on the 'Cat in the Hat' ride in Universal studios but that's a different story!)

Superb light trails, like your method for getting away with using the tripod, my brother works for the underground and in their defence they do have to put up with a lot of crap at times.

love it.

striking lines and colours, a real sense of being drawn into the pic.

I have only done trains at night not tried underground, did you have to ask permission?
