Post Challenge:
Didn't think this photo had a top five in it. and I thank the voters for the surprise...I was just trying to be a little creative with my money shot...and for those who were wondering...No, the train wasn't moving...it was sitting on the tracks about 50 yards away waiting for some reason...I ran out laid the penny down..took 6 shots hand held...the train blared its horn...and I got out of there...thanks again...lol

Hehe, reminds me of my childhood days, we used to put coins on the tram railway in our neighbourhood and wait for the tram to splash it and make a moneypie :-)

I thought this was a pretty cool shot. I'd never done this but I bet it produces some interesting results. I thought the DOF was really great too. Congrats on the HM!

I like this shot for the feeling it invokes. Putting a child (or even an adult) in this shot, and it would have been perfect for me! 8.

Again congratulations for thinking this out and affecting your viewer!

That's a daring image to take. It really conveys the train is coming - and you are on its way!
I'd like to see that penny after the train passed... lol.

now who hasn't done this, and gone to collect the flattened penny afterwards? takes me straight back to childhood summers. 9

Crazy...and somewhat dangerous. Kudos for not getting creamed by the train.

Short of having a mate who drives a train stop on the track with his lights on while you took the photo, I can't work out how you did this? Nice angle

I used to put coins on the railroad track as a kid. Thanks for the memory!

where the shadow of the railroad ends at the bottom, there you have should cut the photo (remove that part), the white building distracts us too much, I must say great idea and courage for taking this shot :)
