Thanks to everyone for their comments on my last upload, and to Pete for the HC very much appreciated.

Back to the War weekend at Pickering for this one.
Shot on Pickering station with an on camera flash, set to second curtain sync,and dialed down to just lift the shadows plus a bit of panning to give the movement.
One of my favourites from this location.
See what you think

Thanks for looking
Regards Richard.

I can see why it's a favourite. Superb craftmanship, just the right amount of movement and detail. My only question would be the whitish squares on the right of the image which keep pulling my eyes from the people.

Awesome work Richard I wonder how many with external flash have used the rear curtain function or any of the other functions, they are there for a purpose.

Intelligent, creative technique. I love the way that certain details, certain features are sharp - as often happens with motion blur.

A very nice sense of movement captured with this - I also like the background which doesn't distract, but enhances the image.
