I may take another shot at this concept if possible, but for now:



Happy tax return deadline to all you US citizens.

Great capture Al, the motion effect is terrific.
It would be great if you could repeat the shot and include the first car or engine to improve the shot even more…

Really nice shot. I am still trying to learn how to do something like this. Great shot.

I agree the motion is well captured. I find with digital motion or blur seems harder to capture than with film. Unless that blur is unwanted.

John, Steve and Ski,

Thanks much for the looks and comments.

John - I did catch the front end on a couple frames, but I think my shutter speed (1/10) was a little too long for the speed of this train. Hence, too much blur on the front end. The side view looked better to me. Unfortunately, you only get one setup per train and it is all trial and error for me. I'll see if I can't nab a better shot tomorrow.

Steve - I too am still just learning- that's what this is all about for me.

Ski - Yeah, AMEN!

Do I need to do anything to update the thumbnail after I change the image and the url for it? It has been over an hour, but no change.

It takes a little time. Speaking from the voice of experience. I like the new one the transitions blur to sharp dim to bright.

Yes Ski I like that too, - that was worth the reshoot in itself.

This one is vastly better than the first one, Al! Great capture! The motion is really perfect! I'll bet this will make the finals!

All the best,

Endre

By the way - Who's photo is in your little "Meadowlark" thumbnail? Obviously not you - but it's a wonderful photo.

Thanks much Endre. I learned a lot on this one. I just wish the CA sky were not so bland. I did a composite, with some nice clouds, but it was hurried and I won't post it unless I have time to do it right.

The young woman in my thumbnail is from a little fishing village in Cambodia. Glad you like it. There are more shots of her and others here: http://www.pbase.com/meadowlark/cambodia

Al.....this is a great entry. The train blur is just perfect. It reminds me of all the trains I have
missed as they went whizzing by!!

Al,

The blurr, diagonal, and perspective really support
the conception of motion. Very nice.

Best,
Marc.

Thanks Patty, getting the blur right was my main goal for this shot. I used 1/25 shutter here and I think the train was probably doing about 40 or 50mph.

Beautiful motion shot Al,
This was just the shot I had in mind, but your implementation is superior. The colors are very nice.
