  • love the motion blur you captured here in this scene.. great shot.. :)

  • did you use flash with this? the light and colors are so wonderful. this has a luminence (sp?) i don’t expect to see in a subway shot.

  • @michele no. no flash. i don’t think. if so it was just for fill. i think its mostly the length of the exposure and high shutter speed. and i want to say that it was one of the brightest subway platforms i’d been on.
