Prediction: 5-5.5

Some wanted to know how to do this,
Use a tripod, setup for long exposure of your choice. Expose for half the time as normal then crank zoom for second half. slow crank increases blur, fast twist decreases overall blur but increases funnel depth. Youll have to experiment, thats all. This one shot took took about 10-15 tries, and I also tried 7-8 different angles and locations so about 100 shots for just one photo. and those woods were filled with poison ivy as I found out.

To defend my washed out sky, I was doing it on purpose as I have others with trees covering the sky. Look at the white rocks on the sides of the tracks, and then the sky, they come together symetrically is a acid drop version of the rule of thirds. No one seemed to see that though :(, but then again I never thought I would get 90%+ again with this photo. Thank you and feel free to ask more questions.

BTW, GHOSTS was better than mine, Id switch if I could

The other transpotting entry here. Not sure how you achieved this effect under basic editing but would love to know. Even tho the sky is blown out it kind of helps my eye follow the tracks down the picture.

I knew the photo had been approved from the comment on it. Was just wondering how you did it is all, figured it was from zooming while taking the shot.
