My friend Per who lives in London at the moment, where so kind to let me crash on his couch for a couple of nights, when I attented the Trey Ratcliff HDR workshop last year. Thanks mate.
Per had just bought his first digital SLR camera - a Canon unfortunately – and was keen on joining me for a few hours of photo walking. We had a great time roaming the streets of London for a little early night shooting. Thanks for the company Per.

This is a view of the entrance/exit to the subway at Potsdamer Platz in Berlin, where I spent a few days in the summer of 2006.
I just arrived with the subway at Potsdamer Platz, and walk out on the square, where I felt like I had arrived sometime in the future, I was looking around to find a way to bring that feeling in to my photo, and ended up by the railing looking down at the subway entrance/exit.
I waited a while to get rid of most of the people, and then made my photo.
I have cloned away a few things in the picture, among them a fire extinguisher hanging on the wall right beside the two people, I also removed a person walking on the “lower deck”, those elements where rather disturbing and removing them added to the future feeling, I think.

This photo was made in Washington DC’s subway, as I stood there and waited for my train to arrive, I decided to shoot some photos of the arriving trains to kill time.
It is a lucky shot, cause you are just standing there with a manually locked focus on the distance to trains and shooting away at the ones passing bye, and most of your photos are pure crap and not for any use, but as the saying goes you gotta seek out your luck, so I did.
The ISO is relatively high (3.200 as you can see the info below the image) because there isn’t that much light on a subway station, and a high ISO makes alot of noise, but for once it didn’t bother me that much, I actually added more grain in the post process. I also did some adjustments on the colors and used a highpass sharpen on the window areas.
