Well, the train was actually a lot slower than light, but I like how the lights seem to have been left behind as the train left the station.
This is a new picture taken from South Quay station. In the first one I used HDR, and barrufeto_77 was a bit disappointed that there were no trains visible.
So I thought it would be nice to add a train to the composition. However, moving targets and HDR do not go very well together, so I decided to do something different.
It took quite a lot of trains to catch the right moment, with the carriages not covering the tracks, the lights just "starting" from within the picture but not too far either.
Luckily, it was rush hour so it didn't take too long :)
...And if you look closely, you can see to which station the train was directed! ;)

I am surprised the vibrations from the train didn't affect the picture much, except for the yellow light streak. Your timing must have been perfect.
Good pic on the whole.

Very nice effect, well planned and realized photo. Interesting how the colour change along the two main lines. Nice with the curves, the pattern in the yellow line and the short blue streak. Reflections on the rails and railing are a plus, strong light in the lower left corner a minus (that's just the way that building happened to be lit).
