These guys are jumping on a running train. My shutter speed couldn't catch the motion because I wanted to get the people as clear as possible. Heck I'm glad I got anything at all since everything was moving so quickly.

Beautiful image. I'm glad you got it sharp. It's a fun image to explore all the details, and the looks on the faces of all the men. The image tells quite a story for me.

Awesome shot! What part of Pakistan is this? I once tried a similar shot but by the time I got my camera out of the bag, the shot was gone and so was my darn train !!!

Quite incredible - there are whole different worlds out there that most of us just don't see . .

Congrats on the HM! I kind of had a feeling that this could be yours, mainly because of the processing style. It reminded me of your "Eventually" entry in the Pieces of Human Form. Great capture.

This is my 31st image to view and vote on, and it is the best cultural photo I have seen by far.

This is a wonderful shot. The culture, the composition, and the colors all combine to make something very special.

Great shot, focus & DOF, emotion of the latecomers well captured, mediocre title. Perhaps "In the nick of time..." Human Interest story. Worthy of NG.

Telling a story to the more fortunate ones. Wonderful tonality.
The black top and bottom black lines do not add but unwanted contrast. In this case, a frame would have been IMO a better choice, if you really like to frame your pics.

It's not easy to decide the framing when doing a snapshot, I think composing the people on the door and square windows only will even greater, imho.

I love this photo! Great subject matter and colour. I can easily imagine seeing it in the pages of NG.

Superb - such a slice of life, full of action, fascinating to those from a different culture. Absolutely nails the challenge.

Definitely. Front page stuff. Magical light.

Very interesting image. Makes me wonder a bit about the crowding, and how long people ride on the outside of the train!

I really like the sense of urgency.

Oh I have a hunch this is you, Urfa, but wow, what an amazing image. This stands out in a class of it's own.
