This got a high vote from me. I'm sorry it was disqualified, but I admit I'm relieved to know you didn't really put the child in danger!

Are you going to tell us how this was done? I imagine you had to validate.

crazy ! - i almost did this for real way back - but talked myself out of it.

i went so far as to place a number of sticks in the gravel taller than i would be lying down and in different spots between the span of the rails. after a few days of train travel they were all still standing...

of course it would only take one stray ( what have you ) to you rip and pummel you to pieces, and likely leave your torn apart body a mile or so from impact...

i'm wondering if the multiple exposure rule was mis-understood. either way very cool photo !

Photographically - technically and in terms of visual impact it is pretty amazing but I feel I just can't condone what I'm seeing. ...

My thoughts exactly.

Agreed.

I really hope there wasnt actually a train going over top of the kid here. Outstanding shot though. Hope you do well.

If the title makes the shot, the shot needs to show more.

OK, I'll come back and vote later but I have a ton of concerns with this image.

I'm asking myself is this done for real? If so, I find it to be spectacularly irresponsible.

If not, then this is masterfully contrived.

Photographically - technically and in terms of visual impact it is pretty amazing but I feel I just can't condone what I'm seeing. I'll wait for a few days perhaps before I decide to vote on it or not.

Back to vote - I've decided that I've registered my concerns and that'll I'll put them aside. As I said before, this is very competent work - 8.

Excellent illusion (I certainly hope it's not for real!!). Post editing is tastefully executed. 8

I don't know where to begin. If this is true, great shot but very stupid of you. I see the blur of the moving train but I wonder why the vibrations of the thousands of tons of moving weight isn't causing the subject to be soft too...(7)
