Train window photography


Coming home with the fisheye, was this a train selfie?



Barreling along at a hundred and twenty clicks on the way down to Melbourne (pre fisheye)

The apparent distortion of the line is actually caused by the doppler effect

Re: Train window photography

Doppler no, but rolling shutter possibly!
You would need to be travelling close to the speed of light to have any effect and then it would be a colour shift due to frequency change. Doesn't look like Aussie trains go that quick!

Re: Train window photography

You can get a sort of doppler effect when a police/ambulance car comes towards you, and then goes away from you....Wheeeeee-ooooow……………..

As Eric Morcambe says, he will never sell ice creams going as fast as that...

(before you say it, I know already...……..)

Re: Train window photography

To get a Doppler effect with light you'd need to be travelling at significantly higher speeds than a train - and then the effect would be a frequency shift - i.e. colour change.

AN OBELIX ASTERIX MOMENT that I've no doubt will eventually invoke a brutal reprisal ...

Nice set. The shadow makes the first photo quite dramatic.

Good question. I've sought civilisation for years, found only scientific barbarism.

Thanks Jason, I think so too. More so were it the Flying Scotsman crossing the viaduct.
