Great shot, it has mood as well as speed = 10

Love the idea of someone sitting in the tower watching trains come by from either side. A really nice focus throughout.

I like the lightning, composition and the blur of the train.

a little dark - but very good

Wonder if the colour version of the shot would have been a slightly better submission.

I love these shots! I've never actually been able to do one, and wish I could! WEll done, love the black and white!

extra sharp bw foto. i like it a lot. another one of those static/dynamic pairing that conveys a sense of rush effectively

Now this is good! The B&W gives your pic that extra push. You've even managed to give your motion blur on the train a lot of detail, which is difficult for blurs, well done - 9.

Nice depiction of speed, I would have cropped the photo just above the buidlings roof. Good luck in the challenge.

I think color would have been more effective in bringing out the blur of headlights. Gets kind of lost with the b/w.

loved the tones in this one

That's a nice shot of Footscray station. It's shows the speed of the trains well. Bonus points since the shot was taken in Melbourne - my home town.
