Fantastic Shots. I've taken many on the NYC subway with the monochrom (35lux usually), and you deserve the accolades already posted. I did notice a consistent -.33EV on all of your shots. Would like your thoughts on this. I often do the same a I think the MM tends to overexpose a bit. Were you trying to compensate, add a little darkness/grit to the seen, other? Thanks for the reply and great work.

Ah yes. Well its because in a scene thats mostly dark with some better lit bits, I want to keep the shadows as shadows, not average grey. I did some bracketing to start with and found -1/3 stop was about right, even though I would have guessed -2/3 to -1.

Thanks for the comments. I'm getting the kick-back now, as I managed to pick up flu hanging around in the subway...
