What is this?

This isn't too hard, but I did play with the photo to make it a little harder to figure out.  I'll post a less modified shot later today with an explanation.



Canon EF 50mm f1.4 USM lens
Exposure 1/6 sec @ f22
ISO 100
Curves adjusted for contrast


Lots of good gusses!  This particular day was cloudy, which really helped this shot.  Actually, I took ~20 photos this day and I didn't think many of them would turn out. As it turns out, I think about half of them are shots worth posting and you should see them soon.   

I was in a park that had a creek running through it and a set of commuter train tracks that bounded one side.  The train tracks crossed a bridge over the creek and I was walking under the bridge when a train passed overhead.  I got off 6 shots and I had the presence of mind to flip it to shutter priority mode for the last shot.  I though it was pretty cool.  In this less modified shot, you can clearly see the ties that support the rails.  I thought it was cool that my hand moved during the exposure, but it really didn't mess up the shot. Here's the slightly less processed version.


With 'normal' shutter speed.

I loved those lines!
I'm curious about this picture.Could it be a detail façade of building?
Great shot!

Feels like looking up and walking under it.

Train at a slow shutter speed? Like the linear look to whatever it is.

looks like Amtrack from under a bridge to me.

Huh. I figured it was either the underside of a bridge or a rain gutter of a house. Close huh?

At first I thought it was a train or a bridge. I just love the first one, abstract art.

Nice series! Reminds me of the series of train photos I posted awhile back.

Pretty cool in both modes... and amazing that there wasn't blurring in the first two...
