Women on Platform
Lana Vshivkoff, 45, Australian
How long have you been in Dubai? Three years.
Camera? Canon EOS 5 and wide-angle 17-50mm lens.
Where was the image taken? On the morning of our overnight train journey to Varanasi. I saw a woman wearing a red sari, but the train began pulling away, so I watched her disappear into the green of the trees.
How did you get the effect? Extended exposure, a neutral-density filter and train movement contributed to the blur and motion in the image. The colours were slightly enhanced
in post-production, although they remain true to life.
What does the image represent? An opportunity to see what we take for granted in our everyday lives.
Where in the world would you most like to shoot? Bhutan and Tibet.
