Making the Grade

Shot at the Model Train Museum in Balboa Park. A great place to visit if you like scale model trains! I have panned just about everything that moves with my camera, but I have to admit, small fast moving model trains are a challenge.

You've worked the pan, shutter speed, depth of field, and curve of the track to perfection! This is a shot that probably couldn't be achieved in "full scale" life, unless you had a huge camera, maybe a format that used lenses with focal lengths measured in meters. Great shot! The frame complements the image well.
