Very nice. Where'd you have to stand to get this one?

@Glenn: Thx Glenn. This is a really local train - I was standing behind the driver's compartment and could see him in the mirror that he uses to keep an eye on the passengers.

Sash from Adelaide, Australia

Awesome composition. The way the topside of the image is framed-and 'unframed'-works so well. I think the image would have felt somewhat empty without that solitary horizontal line. The rest is bloody brilliant per normal so I won't bother commenting about what ought to be obvious. *salutes*
