I really enjoy taking shots of the London underground. Here are a couple from a recent trip. The processing may not be to everyones taste but it's nice to go crazy with it every now & then :-)

The first image is really a roller coaster ride and not the Tube at all.

Like that one a lot, well done.

I really love the symmetry in the second one, and the sense of motion in the first. I never liked fisheyes before, but all these awesome pictures people are posting from the Samyang are starting to change my mind.

Many thanks for the comments. I guess I should point out (if its not obvious) that the second picture is not with the Samyang. I have a couple more from the same set which were taken with this lens (a bit obsessed by London underground photo opportunities at the moment :-)

Your processing is your artistic vision, uniquely you, and that is the way it should be!! These are sensational. Thank you for sharing.

Really like the fish eye images. Love the processing. Punchy but not overdone.
