Metroid Fusion by sando-d Metroid Fusion by sando-d
This photograph was taken in Paris subway, playing with white balance of my camera and I increased contrast in post-processing.

I would to participate to this contest in order to support.

In France, and especially here in Paris, photography is officially banned in subway, for a very long time, except with an authorization of the company which manages the network.....
So we have to be discrete to take pictures and, for the moment, nobody said me to go away.
Actually, when I decide to take some photos in subway, I don't take tripod with me.

I'm often disappointed because, in my opinion, subway is a great place for inspiration : impressive architecture, fast movements, dark and high lights, and people who can be often so common (like me) or sometimes so original.

I don't know NYC subway, but I think your subway looks like ours. ;)

Thanks.

Great, love it... yes, I'm equally pissed off with how more and more space is off-limits to artists and photographers... I've been recently stopped by security in a few privately owned but public spaces... I entered the subway comp too... did you go well? Anyways, this is great!! :)

this reminds me of the film 'Jacobs Ladder', very scary! I love the way the really strong red connotes danger and distress. It doesn't look like a very safe place to travel at night! hehe. Nice job!

I like the colours very much and the motive is nice (hey, I'm gonna see paris next week :))
but the red frame disturbs a lot of the charisma...but it's a great shot

ça fait 4 jours que j'essaye de trouver quelques mots intelligents à laisser en commentaire sur cette photo, je n'y arrive pas :D
J'aime beaucoup l'ambiance évidemment, le côté "urgent" et inquiétant de ce rouge vif, sous-tendu par ce jaune "lave en fusion" qui pourrait presque nous faire transpirer. Puis finalement c'est l'angoisse qui l'emporte avec ces ombres plus noires que noires...
Le résultat est très graphique, quasi cinématique, quelque chose un peu de bd sombre aussi... La compo et le titre nous mette bien aussi sur la "voie" de la lecture de cette image...

Bref, en somme : bravo :clap:

Ah ben merci de t'être penché sur ma photo pendant 4 jours ! :p
Décidément j'aime beaucoup tes analyses et ton sens de l'observation, je suis heureux et même franchement épaté que tu puisses voir tout ça dans cette photo. :)

En somme : merci beaucoup ! ;)

Tu t'es fait tout petit pour rester dans le métro après le terminus ;)
Très sympatique cette atmosphère très rouge. C'est intense et contraste énormément avec les couleurs usuelles du métro !

Great work, I love Line 14... but just how did you manage to take that photo? Were you in a train behind the one at the station or did you go onto the tracks?

So would I! Do you know anything about the night tours they sometimes do around the Métro? I remember someone talked about them when I went on one of those Sprague "Métro Découverte" days...

Hey thanks ! :)
I think it's banned in order to prevent terrorism and maybe for economical interests....I think. ;)

Photography is currently banned because of the Vigipirate anti-terrorism scheme which affects public transport and public places... it'll be there for a long while yet :(

sando-d Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2005   Photographer
Yes you're right, but this rule is more older than Vigipirate. I think there are some economical interests, in order to prevent industrial spy for example........huh this is just my idea ! :D
