Rattle big black bones
In the danger zone
There's a rumblin' groan
Down below
There's a big dark town
It's a place i've found
There's a world going on

Tom Waits
They're alive, they're awake
While the rest of the world is asleep
Below the mine shaft roads
It will all unfold
There's a world going on
All the roots hang down
Swing from town to town
They are marching around
Down under your boots
All the trucks unload
Beyond the gopher holes
There's a world going on

A bold shot to capture, given the suspicion with which people treat photographers in places like subways and tourist spots - especially those that have already been targeted by troublemakers.

The fact that you took this shot and that nobody seems to be panicking about it is a thumbs-up for true freedom. Well done.


this is a class photograph Stephane
i like the mood here and the way you have clicked the moment in the train.
you could slightly shift towards the left to place these two women right and little more offcenter, though this composition has a charm and the darken windows enhances the mood here.
nice idea of black and white conversion, subtraction of colour forces you to concentrate on the mood and the moment.
very well captured

At first, I taught that this is a set up photo with models, but then I realized that this is a snapshot in a subway and WOW. What a capture. Excellent composition and exposure. It has all the elements of a great photo. The story, the drama, the expectation and maybe some mystery. Very good work.

Regards, Pero

Boa noite Stephane
You captured a good scene and you communicate very well the claustrophoby of tube. Good capture and love the composition
My regards
