Like the plants that are lit by the light and that the surroundings a bit dark. I wonder how it can be that the light at the left is slowly being less... nice effect.
Any other settings used then a longer shutter time?
This could be a good picture for in the office?

i think i fired the shutter when the train was just outside the right of the frame, so its brighter on the right because i could see the headlights almost directly.

as for "settings"
ISO200, f9, 25s 20mm (shot with my 18-55mm kit lens)

Edit: I think i'm going to try it again when the weather is nicer, this time i'll manually fire the flash at the train to see if i can get it frozen in the middle of the frame with the blur passing over it... i think it'll give a slightly more "ghost-train" effect. The issue is, the wait can be as long as 30 minutes to try again...

Thesekind pf pictures are special. If you can make more of these. It;s not what most poeple don't do that makes this picture special. But I am curious what your next picture will look like

If you every can try this shot again, I think you should try a shorter shutter speed, so you can actually see the train. If you decrease the shutter speed you will also have to use a larger aperture (smaller fstop)...

Just my take on it.

it's kind of interesting, but my gut says it can be better with a little experimenting. not sure exactly what tweaks to make. . .but the concept is very interesting. Good luck with the next attempt.
