The Underground, a very iconic part of London, I got a number of shots of the underground during my brief visit to London and this one I felt had the most potential. Out of the camera it was in good shape, good layout, good color, showed the hustle and bustle of the city, but I really wanted the image to pop and to really bring out the red of that underground sign (rather than the red in the building windows behind it).

After playing with saturation and hues and not getting the right look I decider to try a trick I’ve seen but never did, which is the remove all the color except for one particular color or area.


Here’s the final result with a good strong crop. I really like the final result and it’s been my background on my computer for quite some time now
