Canary Wharf Underground Station, London, England

 

Right guys I want your honest opinion on this photo. At the moment for me, it feels like a 'Marmite' image. Sometime I look at it a really really like it and then come back to it 10 minutes later I don't like it but not sure why. I have tried my best to fix the distortion but I think this is the best its going to get.

 

This is a vertorama made up of three images, my first ever vertorama would you believe. Stitched together in PSE9 and then B&W conversion in Silver Efex Pro 2 and then tweaked in LR4. This is an image of the the smaller, less photographed escalators in the station. They tend not to be as busy and so get better photo opportunities with less people getting in the way.

 

Anyway, thank you again for the comments yesterday and glad yesterdays upload was well received.

Information

Canary Wharf tube station is a London Underground station on the Jubilee Line, between Canada Water and North Greenwich. It is in Travelcard Zone 2 and was opened by Ken Livingstone setting an escalator in motion on 17 September 1999 as part of the Jubilee Line Extension. It is maintained by Tube Lines. Over 40 million people pass through the station each year, making it not only the busiest station on the London Underground outside Central London but also the busiest that serves only a single line. (The DLR station is completely separate.)
