1/30th at f/4.0 with a 50mm lens at ISO 250. As I was making my way in Kassels Koenigsstrasse (King Street) pedestrian area, I varied shutter speeds as I was trying to get my panning shot. When shutter speeds were shorter, the motion blurr was weak, if they were really long, everything was blurred. At the given distance and focal lenght, the 1/30th of a sec. worked fine. And I was happy to get the reflectin of the street- and shoplights as it was getting dark. Cropped only a little bit to get rid of weak architecturual elements on top of the tram.

Exif: F Number: 4, Exposure Bias Value: -1.00, ExposureTime: 1/30 seconds, Flash: did not fire., ISO: 250, White balance: Auto white balance, FocalLength: 50.00 mm, Model: NIKON D3
