The Getaway

A train leaves nothing but a motion blur as it darts through the British countryside, riding the rails to a destination unknown (well with the exception of those with a train timetable)

    Great shot! Not just the fast, smudged train. Your effort is paid off!

    You need to clean your camera sensor :)

      Or just my lens that day and my laptop screen. So many marks on the laptop I can't see what is lens and screen dirt

        Ha ha. Dirt spots have tendencies to jump from the laptop into the picture. Happens to me too. LOL.

      Glad you like it - was worth the effort on my part - several failed attempts on previous trips and lots of prep on the day I did get the shot

      Thank you! There were a lot of prep shots in the development of this but I'm pleased with the final product so defos worth it

      Thanks Denise - took a bit of doing (and several trips passing the area) but I pretty much where I wanted to be with this shot. Tried it during the middle of the day once and the contrast was all wrong and it was too bright to do the exposure/aperture I wanted :)

        The fun is sometimes persistently trying and figuring it out as we do. So pleased you did! An idea that has come life. Very rewarding!

      Thank you! I was pleased with the level of blur on this and as you can imagine, it took a bit of patience to get it right. Trains go by maybe every 10 minutes but at the time of day I was taking this, the light was dropping fast so had to weigh that in my calculation for how long to expose for

    Wow this is so cool!

      Thanks Carol - I tried this on several other trips to the area but it never worked. I realised that the key was for the train to be going away from me rather than toward me. The other way around and the blur just didn't work
