For anyone interested in seeing more of Casa Mila:

This is one special building. My favorite after Falling Waters by Wright.
Thanks for your nice view of it Bali.

That first shot is very curious. Note the the light trail from the taillight of the motorcycle is IN FRONT of the motorcycle. There are two possible explanations for this. First is that the motorcycle was stopped and then started moving forward while your shutter was open. This is not likely since there would be some slight flutters in the red line at the start. However, the line is straight. The second is that your flash fired at the start of the exposure and then the shutter remained open. This is called front curtain sync. Rear curtain sync, if available, causes the flash to fire at the end of the exposure, putting the light trail behind the subject.

Assuming that the bike moved through the shot, wouldn't a rear curtain sync show only the light trail and not the bike?

The bike was sitting at the stop light long enough to be shot as a ghost. It then moved on when the light changed causing the light trail. If you notice the crosswalk lights and street lights they are both green and red. It was a fluky well timed shot.

Bill, since the bike is moving away from camera, when the flash fires with rear curtain sync, there may not be enough light to illuminate the bike. If the bike were coming toward you, the flash would illuminate the bike but I'm not sure how well the trace from the tail light would show. Rear curtain sync is best when there is adequate ambient light to provide the streak effect and you want to show the vehicle in front of the streak.

According to the EXIF data the flash was off.
