Last train to Brussels

Interesting. I have done a couple of shots like this one, but in b&w and of cars only (streets, freeways). I should try a train. Can you provide some "Behind the Photo"? Train speed and shutter speed would be very insightful.

Great photo!

Rock on,

The train was moving quite fast, because I was only interested in the red light. Shutter speed was 15 sec. The picture was taken at 11 pm. The light in the background came from Brussels, capital of Belgium. Sometimes light polution can be useful.

You just have to consider whether the light of the train will make an interesting angle with other lines in the scene.

I never did this in B/W, but will try this out very soon. #2420
