Going down...

By dudler
From a visit to London last week: and probably partly inspired by Potra's recent posts of commuters.

A fairly lucky bit of panning at a relatively slow shutter speed.

Nice to see something different from you John.

This appeals to me as I like abstract images. Although not a busy escalator, the motion blur not only gives the sense of movement for me but also the feeling that the world is all a little fast and crazy. I personally prefer the colour image over your sepia interpretation.

I would like more space on the left edge and have done a mod to frame differently and added in the canvas to give that space.

That said this is a personal preference and overall I like the concept and execution in V1.

Paul -

I thank that's all fair comment: including the last bit, about personal interpretation.

I keep my camera with one of the custom modes set to high ISO, f/2.8 and sepia: in low light, I usually just switch to that. However, in this case, I wasn't quite convinced by the original, so I opened the RAW file in elements, with the result you see.

So yes, I also prefer V1.

I rather liked the extreme framing: I can't claim much of the credit, as I only had the chance for one frame, having thought of the idea part-way up! I had time to stop down and shoot this chap. Some blind luck there!

Yours doesn't feature a nude Wink John, same effect.

100 miles an hour escalator. An amusing shot.
