locked up

Canon 135mm f2 lens

I absolutely love what you can find in New York if you slow down and take a look around. I found this bright green padlock in the 34th Street subway station while waiting for the F train one day. The bright color stood out and caught my eye, but what really made this shot interesting was the soft orange and yellow background colors showing through the locked gate. The subways have some fascinating images, but before I took this photo I never imagined that such vibrant colors had a place in the darkest place in the city. Taken with a Canon 135mm f2 lens mounted on a Canon 5D Mark III camera. The aperture was wide open at f/2 in order to pull the subject out towards your eye and create the softest background possible to contrast against the sharp focus of the metal lock.
