Another of the more decorated stations to be found in the Central area. The architecture to be found underground is spectacular to look at and dates back to 1935 when the first line was opened. I set the ISO to 1600ASA to capture this shot using 1/45sec at f4 exposure. The Metro handles 9 million passangers per day .

Interesting stained glass decorations, Colin. Like you, the decor of the Moscow underground has always fascinated me, but it's difficult to capture in a photograph without the overhead lights being blown out. However, there's not much you can do about that unless you can find a POV that blocks them out.
Merry Christmas . . . David

sharpness is good.

Some kind of distorsion in the picture? Is tilt?
I don't know, but the Moscow subway is one of the richest of the world. I mean that the substations with all their corridors don't look belong to the metro.
The decoration are extraordinary and this photo is a good exemple.
But I think that with more patient you could have the people more orderly.
Regards and happy new year.

In saw a TV program about this place - what a spectacular place it is! Very impressive. Good POV Colin, and those angled walls look like they are curving inwards and inwards! Good shot, thank you

A really rich decoration for a metro station.

Very pleasant place, that a bit arched tunnel look is little claustrophobic but bright colours bring warmth to the place, you have captured this excellent, very good details and POV!
