NYCTA Number 7 Train, Queensboro Plaza, December 2015.

I’ll call this, Flushing Line Revisited. My first visit was with my dad about 1968. They’ve changed the cars since then

The New York metro-area generates its own quality of light. By afternoon on this day a mix of high cloud and four flavors of atmospheric pollution had tinted the skylight grayish orange with hints of smoggy yellow.

I've adjusted contrast in post-processing with the use of a digitally applied gradated neutral density filter to help balance the sky detail.

A slightly closer view of the same train. Note the inbound train on the lower level of the elevated structure. Both are moving.

I made these views with my Lumix LX7 from the Manhattan-end of the double-deck Queenboro Plaza station. The Manhattan skyline looms in the distance.
