[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Recentely established underground net-work in Mashhad, Iran and it's not allowed to take pictures there. So I took advantage of being foreigner, I can't speak Farsi, shhhhhh.....

This police officer came to me and told it's not allowed to take pictures. Obediently, I assured that I'll take no more pictures. But the picture I've taken, I didn't mention to him. It was too grainy image so I converted into monochrome. However, I'm uploading colored version in the WS.

Hi Inaam,
You've got an impressive shot in the underground, this grainy presentation is increasing impact and the policeman doing the sign to put away the camera it's making it more dramatic! I like the monochrome picture with the oficer in color. Great PP work and creativity
Well done,

Francis Xavier

Hi Inaam

I like the use of hilighting the guard with colour layer, something i have been experimenting with of late. I like the textures and sheen. tfs

stv ;o)

I like the mood you have captured in this underground location, Inaam!
Light is tricky but you have managed it well.
The authorized person waving not to take pictures does add drama and a special situation in the picture.

Overall, a nice documentary shot!

Kind regards,

Bom dia Vic.
Nice dessaturation and very goodperspective.
Besides this a humoresque chronicle of "security" uses.

Ciao Inaam, beautiful partial desaturation, lovely composition with fantastic perspective and splendid light, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

I'm not sure if what he's telling you is the law, no taking of pictures allowed, but some people given a little authority will use it to the hilt. But it's prudent to be careful. It's a little shaky but nice capture of this underground train. TFS.

Hi Inaam:)
No picture allowed? - we can only ask why? there is nothing like secret - subway is public so what is the problem? - well in some Countries their regimes want to prohibit everything. Just be careful - for doing nothing wrong you can be arrested or bitten or God knows what due to their stupid laws, or rules I should say. Very good that you monochrome this image instead of that cop - there must be one every few meters.... we can see this way how brutalize is this Country, so sad because there is many people who like to see Persia... well Iran today.
This subway is so modern and nice, I think they are proud of it so that train should be show around the world. Anyway this look much nicer and modern than our subway in Toronto.
Nice document Inaam, I like this picture.
Cheers - Tom:)
