I thought I’d post his now because it has sort of an inside-out Christmas tree look to it… Despite it’s appearance, there was virtually no post processing done on the image. I just did a minor curves adjustment & Topaz Adjust to add a little ‘pop’. The effect was caused by the long (3 second) exposure while the train moved through the tunnel surrounded by all these flashing lights.
As I was about to post this I was trying to decide on a title for the photo and “Wormhole” seemed the obvious choice. It just looks like what I would fantasize that traveling through a wormhole would look like. Then I realized that my friend and amazing photographer Trey Ratcliff named his photo of the same location “The Wormhole”. I’m not sure if I had some unconscious memory of his title embedded in my brain from previously reading his post or perhaps, I named it that just because hey, it looks like a wormhole… In any case, you can see his photo here:
This is actually a rather kitsch but fun train called “The Bund Sightseeing Tunnel” that runs under the river between the Bund in Shanghai & Pudong. It is obscenely touristy but nevertheless something I would recommend.
