Cars and Transport Competition 5 2013 : Entry Number 160

Judges Comment

I was really drawn to this when I first saw it. The mixture of the slow exposure for the sense of speed from the train is great in itself but the added use of a longer exposure to really make use of the stars at night really offers the viewer 2 separate but combined sensations of movement, very good concept Well Done!

Photographers Comment

Thanks for the comment and two "Marks of Excellence" in one competition. I will try to improve this concept. Used my D300 with the Tokina 2,8/11-16mm. It was not easy to combine the different kinds of movement - by the way on the left side you can see a third kind of movement, my bicycle. It's a sandwich picture with ca. 100x30 sec for the stars, edited with starstax software and one single shot for the train. Postprocessed in Photoshop. More of my photography in flickr.
