I had this picture in mind since some time. The night challenge was just the right time to get it to reality. As usual I used minimal edition.

Post-challenge :

Thanks for the comments. The reason why the guy stood still for that long is because I knew I had to stay still ;). I used myself as a model because I knew that a plain shot of a train wasn't sufficient.

Very cool shoot. I love how the guy is very motionless while the train "flys" by. This could be worked into an album cover.

I like this - the juxtaposition of motion and stillness, the funky blue 6 in the corner. I don't know, I just like it!

I like the motion blur of the train in this - well captured!
Good luck in the challenge!
