Was on the way home from a shoot in Hell's Kitchen, Manhattan, NYC and noticed this escalators wonderful image.......Lens is an OS lens which supported the slow exposure......Hope you like the image as much as I do.
Subject of photo
Composition & Perspective
Use of camera, exposure & speed
Color & Lighting
Depth of field
this subject has been used a lot, I like the use of colour at the base of the escalator almost in a rainbow arc.
Composition is very strong and the angles draw the viewers gaze directly to the point of interest at the base of the escalator
Plenty of depth of field and good sharp focus showing all the fine detail and texture in the subject
Exposure is correct plenty of highlight & shadow detail across the tonal range of the image
Use of colour is very effective, lighting is diffuse showing detail in the subject
Plenty depth of field appropriate to the subject with fine ddetail
A well executed photograph in the genre' of Architectural Photography. There are no perspective distortions and exposure shows all the detail in the subject. The slight motion blur adds a live feel to the image.
How to improve your photo
there is a slight green cast in the highlights you could add magenta to filter this out
There is an area to the left of the image at the top of the ecalators which is different coloured stainless steel this could be matched to the rest of the steel in photoshop or other editing software
When taking formal architectural photoraphs try to tidy the area as much as possible. There appears to be a white plastic lid at the base of the escalators.
