The Metro

view map

The lighting was very dim and played nicely with the camera’s white balance reader.

Rosslyn station is the deepest on the Orange and Blue Lines; passing through a rock-bored tunnel. Its platform lies some 97 vertical feet below street level (its ceiling is nearly 60 feet high). It features the third longest continuous escalator in the world, at 437 feet; an escalator ride between the street level and the mezzanine level takes 159 seconds.

That's a really nice comp for this scene, Glenn. And a great use of the FE. V

Hi Glenn, Sigma says (in it's video) that the lense is design for Full fram DSLR, is that true ? or can I use it with my Nikon D90 . Thanks !

Great fisheye shot. Nicely aimed to get the best distortions on the wall. I know this station well. "V"

Great use of a fisheye. Plus a bit movement from the train. v

Crazy, dizzy metro! You are probably the best fisheye user out there.

Great subject for the fisheye and you have used it masterfully. What made you think to time the escalator?

Great image: the colors, shapes and slight blur add so much to this!
