    Watched the sunset over the railroad bridge last night. Seemed like forever between trains. When I walked into town, I heard train after train going over the bridge...

    Cool shot. Love the second one. Is that a public transit train?

    Thanks,
     
  3. I concur, #2 is very nice. Can't figure out how there's no motion blur of the train in such low light conditions. Thanks for sharing.....

    Cheers

    Thank You,
    Pat, Ted,
    That is a cool old bridge but is hard to find a good angle. Guess I need to get out on a boat.

    Pete: Are you using a filter to get the "start" effect of the direct sun shot?

    Great photos, especially love #2. You really nailed it even in the low light.

    Thanks Dave,
    No I did not use a filter for the star effect. I was stopped down to F22 on the 28 2.8 AIS. The other was with my 70-200 and 3200 ISO to stop the train movement. I know movement may have looked good but the headlights go the wrong direction.
