Great capture of moving target with 3 exposures. Normally we try to avoid movement with HDR, but you chose the perfect subject. This gives a lot of inspiration and ideas.
Thanks Ray, I agree trains make good subjects for moving HDR, particularly the older suburban ones in Sydney with the corrugated metal sides, you get a nice sheen, almost polished look when the light strikes them. Glad you like the shot.
WOW fantastic shot!!
excellent work Leigh
Wow… that train is like a sleek shot of mercury screaming into the tunnel. As always Leigh, superb control of subject and light to give us a very powerful image. Thank you!
Thanks Jeff, I had 3 goes at this and this version I like the best. Trains were on a fairly regular basis so I played with the timing of the shutter speed and when to start the exposure sequence to get the best sense of motion in the train. This version when HDR’d really brought out the shine of the metal train body but completely lost the trains windows which I really like now, makes it look like a long metal snake or a shot of mercury as you said.
Fantastic image Leigh, hard to believe that is a train on the right
Yep it’s a train, the fact that it’s moving has blurred out the windows quite well and the HDR brought out the shine in the corrugated metal body of the train. Thanks Jason!
Excellent capture !!! :D
