Camera: Canon EOS-5D Mark II
Lens: Canon EF 24-105mm f/4.0L IS

"heaven's waiting room" by ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' vlado (see below) is my pick for a title.

answering questions about how this was done - nothing too special. The main thing is that the scene was very contrasty to begin with. Overexposure using both very high ISO (25600) and long exposure (1/15s) then adding some contrast in post did the rest. Shot handheld.

Its nice to see bold experimentation, I think the over exposure here has worked well, I like the way the escalator disappear into the ether and in the foreground the way detail only begins to emerge towards the edges but you have kept detail in the all important people. A great experiment that I hope does well for you
