Took this photo near the overhead pedestrian bridge over the commuter train lines.
This place is located in between Brickfields and Bangsar and quite close to KL Sentral Stations. In KL sentral stations, it is the meeting point for rail services for commuter trains, Light rail transit, Express train to KLIA and trains to Singapore and Thailand.
I wanted to see some speed of the trains. I set the exposure to 0.5 sec. I didn't bring a tripod but rested the camera on the walkway handle.
I wish to set the exposure longer but the lense I used has reached it's min aperture of 22. Any longer will caused the shot over exposed.
This photo is cropped to focus on the train and adjusted color, contrast and sharpen.
Hope you enjoy the photo.

I like the feeling of speed in this photo that you have shown here .. I find that to capture motion in a photo one has to use a slow shutter speed and you have executed this very well during the daylight
tfs ... cheers ... sarju

Hi Chai, A nice capture of the moving trains, both on top of the bridge and the one on the ground. Nice perspective view of the railway and the scene to the city. Good contrast.

You really got a very nice effect of this train in movement. I liked how you worked on the exporure time to get these blurred effect, not only on the trains, but also on the cars on the background, and leaving everything else very sharp. Beautiful colors and very good contrast too.
