Photographer’s challenge: New York City Subway’s 34th Street-Hudson Yards.

Not long ago the old IRT Flushing line was extended west and a new terminal station called 34th Street-Hudson Yards was opened. This is located near the Javits Center and just a few blocks west of Penn-Station.

My digital guru Eric Rosenthal recommended this to me as a photo subject. The station is unusually deep and features very long escalators.





I exposed these images with my Lumix LX7. The underground views were made at ISO200. One of the advantages of the LX7 is that it has a very fast lens. In other words the lens has the ability to let in lots of light.

The advantage of this feature is that I can use a relatively slow ISO setting in the subway and still get excellent results hand held.
