Rush Hour

Rush Hour

I had read in a trade pub earlier this week, that hues of yellow and red tend to draw the viewer's eye "into" the photo, so be sure to use them whenever possible.
You know I couldn't "bring it" to you in some old boring fashion... at least in my opinion.
I was sitting at the train stop near a rail station in Morton , Pa. Was just about to cross the tracks and the lights came on. You can see how close I was to that rail too. No zoom on the lens... I was 'wide" at 75mm (millimeter) for those that may not know.
Anyways, as the lights and bells and whistles started, I figured what the heck and reached over in my bag I take to work. You can see yesterday's post for more about that.
I didn't have too much time to fiddle with settings, and I was trying to slow my shutter down for a blurred effect (in shutter priority mode)
From the time I unzipped the camera bag and switched it on was about 5-10 seconds, and by that time the train started rolling through.
I honestly did not have time to really frame the shot and was kind of winging it, just as long as my steering wheel was outside the frame. So when I got home and downloaded , I was pleasantly surprised to see the rail with the light on the end almost in near razor sharp focus.
I think it's more than enough "red" in this image to wet your whistle , and grab your attention. You can always view this image in larger sizes by clicking on it.

....it never slows down.... in THE URBAN PERSPECTIVE
