The picture is a culmination, no a direction...I often photograph trains arriving and departing and this one is more complex and not strictly based on subject's allure. A return to landscape mode which allows broader compositions. There is less "fill the frame" when composing as one can do in portrait mode. Portrait mode is easier, more predictable and the camera being off axis is less visible. Easier to hold also as I have noted.
5th Av. station around six PM Monday. I could not make the 6:05 train, so I waited one extra train to board.
Flag, movement, bent posture, filtered light....I hope you like it.
I need to shoot more in landscape mode. See some samples, below from Monday.
Penn Station in the morning and the stairs at 5th Av., southbound level.
