set this up on some tracks by my office. These tracks are part of the original transcontinental railroad route and very busy. The "train" of course is a flashlight. Should have been a bit lower but was nervous about staying on the tracks too long...also lit the typewriter with flashlight just a bit.

Happy with my first ribbon!

This was actually my favorite image from the entire top 3 in each category! Marvelous work, and far more worthy and 3rd place, in my opinion. The concept and articulation are remarkable. Well done!

I like how the ghost is trying to rescue the table from the train. Good job.

Great idea and composition. I like the color of the sky, and the "oncoming train".

Really lovely setup. One of my favourite parts is the bright light on the left..the viewer cant quite figure out if that is a lamp or an oncoming train. Love the starburst effect!

great flare

And I thought I got strange looks taking pictures.

I like the idea. Is the distant light supposed to be a train? Looks too high up.

Very clever set up and great lighting.

Excellent imagination. Nicely done. If the light had been just a tiny bit lower, it would have really nailed the illusion.

Beautiful picture, you have a good chance to win. I'm trying to analyze it, I assume you used a low ISO because it looks really sharp and noiseless, also a high F number to get the light in the back look like that and if so, you should've used a semi-long shutter speed to get the correct exposure, but there must've not been any wind because the trees look so still. Or maybe you used a star filter. Nice composition and colors, very harmonic.
