Last Shadow, Singapore.
Photo for July 2011:The Last Shadow.
As the last train arriving into Singapore departed the station, I held the lens tightly against the holes in the fence and used a very high ISO to allow as fast a shutter speed as possible. Once again, Image Stabilization proved to be a godsend and a shutter speed of 1/4 second @ f/4.5 with a focal length of 70mm, I was getting sharp frames off the newly-purchased Canon 70-300 IS L.
It was a lens that served me well during my quest to capture the final images of the KTM trains at the Tanjong Pagar Railway Station. From 1st July onwards, the century old train service will no longer be heard churning away across the island. Scenes and sounds that I once took for granted will cease and never will this scene be repeated.
