            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!

                      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 Kerrie - would love to be able to do a version with a steam train at some point in the future. Not many around these days though

                                  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

                              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)
