    The people wouldn't go were I wanted them to go! :-( And I actually got in trouble for taking this first one by a metro staff member. I didn't realise it was actually a private company that ran and built the 'public' transport here. Ah well. Didn't stop me. hehe.

    I'm having fun with duotone if you couldn't tell!

    You are so brave!
    I'd have shrivelled to nothing and slunk away if someone had come up to me to tell me "Leave it!"
    And in how far can a thus publicly used place as the Toulouse Metro be treated as if it were private property, whether it is by law or not? I wonder.

    Again the first is not totally and completely symmetrical. Did you go for that? Near miss then... heehee :greenpbl: (sorry, just joking).

    Very nice, I really like the second capture. On my recent trip I took as many images as possible at the airports but was always worried I was going to get in trouble.

    Both are very nice. The second is my favorite for its composition, lighting and DOF.

    I am also another fan of the second one. Nice capture. Next time they tell you not to take pictures give them an open flash to the eyes :fangs:

    It didn't give me the JPEG option either under Save As. I had to go to "Save for Web" and it worked.

    And regards the legal sides, you'll see a nice little info pack I've put up in the General Q&A about it. This experience made me want to know more, so I shared it with you all too! Aww aren't I nice. ;-)

    Ohh I can't remember. Hang on the data might still be saved in the PSD file.

    I did a slight levels, and contrast change. (coz my camera always has low contrast! ARGH!)
    Then did a channel mix layer to get the B&W look I wanted.
    Then Flattened the image
    Convert to greyscale
    Convert to duotone
    Used Black and Pantone 8961C (from the metallic coated section)
    Then added the very slight vignetting you can see.
    Ta Da!

    I didn't know whether I would like that metro shot with the people in, but I really like what you've done here. And that second picture is superb. Well done!
