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

                      That's an awesome shot! The train motion is fantastic.

                          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!

                                  Completely agree and I do feel very rewarded for my efforts

                                Vanishing lines,blur and balance. Great shot!

                                    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

                                        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
