All the fine lines II

Picture taken at the metro station Forum in Copenhagen, Denmark (not that it really matters what station it's taken on, as all the stations look more or less excactly the same...)

Second in the series, the other one is here [link]
But this one is sharper and generally has a totally different "feeling" in a way.

Post processing:

Adjusted the exposure and white balance (more blueish as it was extremely yellow, I forgot to think about the white balance when I shot...) a bit in camera raw (even though it wasn't a raw picture, but I like the camera raw settings (or whatever I should call it) in a way).

Adjusted the levels and made the picture even lighter, added b&w layers set to multiply and soft light, both on 50% opacity. Added two b&w layers with a bluish tint set to overlay and multiply (100% and 20% opacity). Added an unsharp filter and straightened a bit.

Very attractive work here. Especially crisp, with great conveyance of light and shadow. Thank you especially for the inclusion of the summary of your post-camera work. I wish more dAers did this.

Wow, when you said you had used my picture as a reference I would never have thought it was something like this. Escalators as wings :lol:
Original work and very well executed :clap:
