how to see in the dark to focus - eat some carrotsSmile

worth viewing large, i wish there was just a bit of detail in the side of the engine, but i guess when its dark its dark.

works well all the same.

Thanks for the comments Smile It was taken at the Severn Valley railway station at Bridgnorth. You can sneak round the back where all the trains are parked up for the night

there are a couple of people on here who specialise in that kind of shot...i think that they use a torch to selectively light the subject through the long exposure...

i really like the effect you've achieved here though where what light there is catches the engines and ground..nice sky to

looks like chilly work to me!

Lovely, great shot Lynn, some wonderful dark tones and some great catchlights on the engine and rolling stock.

Hi Lynn
A nice shot that has atmostphere and character!!

When i do my shots i use a torch on the area i want sharp and in focus. and sometimes use the scale on the lens if i'm pushed for time..

Thumbnail doesn't do this image justice, it really is a cracking picture, full of atmosphere.

Had a quick read of your CV, interesting job. If you work with children you may be interested in my company's work

Lynn excellent capture that must be seen large to pick up all the detail and how much stregnth you gave it with the dark and detail coming out of it!

Watcha Lynn,
clever abstracted image. The thumbnail lets it down, I bet you've missed a lot of views, really need to see the big pic to appreciate.

The easiest way is to use the distance scale on your lens I think - but I know these aren't always very good on modern lenses.

like this - nice and dark. Look at tandberg's pf for more tips on night photography. He uses flash or torches to illuminate the subject.

Caption should have been Ghost Train. A terrific shot.
