Escape from City 17 by DarkMetaphor Escape from City 17 by DarkMetaphor
Inspired by Half-Life 2. Train pictures seem to "get right" when the colors and contrasts are getting adjusted the right way, so the third, or fourth I changed this deviation I tried to get a better and more natural lightning, and less "sharp" contrasts. In the post-processing I tried to get this dystopic, ominous and post-apocalyptic feeling you get in certain movies and games, like 28 days later (movie) and Half-Life 2 (game).

FROM THE SAME SESSION:

:bulletgreen: One day you will realize I
:bulletgreen: One day you will realize II
:bulletgreen: Awake but asleep
:bulletgreen: Beyond the fence I
:bulletgreen: Beyond the fence II
:bulletgreen: Incantation of carbon I
:bulletgreen: Incantation of carbon II
:bulletgreen: Everyday regret
:bulletgreen: Escape from City 17

Thanks for watching and please leave a comment!

I like the space from the back of the train, it makes that loneliness feeling to appear.

Thank you very much.
It's actually partially inspired from S.T.A.L.K.E.R also.

Yes. I'm trying, and sometimes the results gets better and better. I think cloudy days (those heavy looking clouds) are great for HDR pictures. :)
