    Thanks, John. ; BTW, this photo was taken at ISO 3200 and no noise reduction was applied.

    Very nice. I've always wanted to try a night monorail shot.

    Nice article Scott. ; Something to try when I am down there in March. ; Could you try setting the exposure for the background first, without a flash, ; then add the flash and adjust the flash exposure to get what you want for the monorail?

    You could do that but try and get the fastest shutter you can when you do which will probably mean raising the ISO. ; Seems everyone liked the first photo so I did a I little more work on it. ; This was taken at 1/30th of a second. ; All other settings are the same (f/5, ISO 3200, EV 0, 82mm FL, rear-sync flash a full power):

    i think the 1/15 sec is the winner, scott. ; great job!

    Thanks, Tim. ; I think people don't like the long headlight streak so they went with the shorter shutter speed. ; I will try this again at higher ISO's and faster shutter speeds in the future.

    Great article Scott. ; I now have a good reason to play around with read sync flash!

    That headlight streak didn't bother me one bit. ; Matter of fact I like it. ;
