Phoenix Light Rail Sun Rise!

I captured this shot of a Phoenix Light Rail train as it went by early this morning during sunrise. The yellow and red colors are the rays of the morning sun reflecting off office building windows.


No Photoshop and no post editing other then sharpening and color boost this is right out of the camera. Raw image proccessed in Canon Digital Photo Professional to JPEG.


Its amazing how far in a slow shutter speed panning shot you can push the Canon 100-400 Zoom and still get a sharp photo of the moving train, I found 1/10th of a second to be about the limit.


This shot would not have been possible without the high ISO capability of my Canon EOS 5D Mark II camera and incredible stabilization of my Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM lens.


Thanks for all your kind comments and favs everyone!
