Surrey Quays Station by ash Surrey Quays Station by ash
I'm usually a little wary of these shots that play too heavily on perspective lines in architecture -- but I couldn't resist this one, largely because the graffiti lent it that extra photojournalistic edge that I tend to go for.

Surrey Quays Underground Station, London, Sept 2002
Canon EOS 300, Fuji Neopan 400, lab, scanned neg, cropped in photoshop

Excellent! Another place I've been to too many times to count! I love the way you captured the columns and the expression on that guy is so South East London! LOL LOL

Whatever floats yer boat is OK round here ;-) (Wink)

I for one really like it. I think the composition adds loads to the whole image and you are right, the 'tags' are v interesting in the shot.

Well, I agree with verunec about there being plenty of rail-shots on dA, however this one has a slight edge to it that I like. The graffiti, to me, definitely is the focal point of this shot, especially since it seems to be so meticulously the same across the pillars. Nice shot ash.

Ahhhh! There are thousand and thousand of rails in perspective on DA. Statistically I think 3 or 4 submission a day with the same subject. I should be not surprized if, someday, openining the home page of DA I will read: "Dramatic! A joung Deviant die while he was taking a rails shot. The train was ahed of time about half an hour. The Community shares the Parent's grief." Well, I wish not.
Anyway, nice photo, because of the graffiti, and b. of the guy, and his glance. Terrible.

there's a good balance in this photo,
looks like it could be cut in half and used as two seperate shots.
nice work ;) (Wink)

Very very cool shot, The b/w does quite a bit for it and the graffiti does make it all worth while. +fav
