Default Speed of light ...

Another shot of the Phoenix Metro Light Rail passing over Tempe Town Lake.

This is the same bridge as the previous shot, just taken from the opposite (east) side; you can just see the old Union Pacific rail bridge in the shadows to its left. Note the color of the lights has changed. They modify the lighting program after it's officially dark. So, up and through dusk they have green and purple lights which "run" up and down the bridge, fading in and out. After dark they transition to this rainbow effect.

This is another digital blend of 3 different exposures done manually (masks) in CS3: a main exposure (most of the scene), one for just the light along the bridge and another for the water (and mostly limited to the reflections, so they weren't blown out).

EXIF: f/11, ISO 400, shutter speeds between 5.0sec (under-bridge lighting) to 25.0sec (main exposure)

It's cool, but the varying textures in the water is a little distracting..
