Pick Your Best Transit Photo - One (1) Photo only

Recommended Posts

Quite a few of you have taken numerous photos of trains, buses, and other transit types over the years.

 

What I would like to see is what you consider to be your best transit photo ever. Post it here and give a little description of what it is and why you consider it to be your pièce de résistance, or your best ever in layman's terms.

 

There's only one rule to follow: POST ONLY ONE PHOTO! It can be from any country, any city (New York too), anywhere.

 

Here's mine, which I recently took. It is a photo of the signal mast at the Gambetta station on the Paris Métro #3 line. I just love how all the different colors just blended together to make a very nice photo for a little $149 point and shoot camera.

 

P.S. I hope that I chose the proper forum for this post.

My friend took this photo at the 207th Street Yard tour back in August and I decided to pose in front of an R32:

I've posted this one before but this is one of my favorites I've ever taken because of the time of day, and the sky color which almost matches the LED. It's a simple shot, but it has a cool feel to it to me, very laid back end of the work day kind of feel:

Wow, each one of you has posted an impressive photo!

 

Y2 - the combined dusk and slow shutter speed just made for an excellent photo. The quality of the camera doesn't hurt either! ;)

 

Trainfan - the pic of the train is nice, but it's the tangled weave of overhead wires and steel that makes that photo.

 

lrg - if there wasn't a visible background in that pic, I would've sworn that it was taken out in a field somewhere. The weeds give it a little extra oomph.

 

KR - good photo of a train going two ways at once, plus there aren't too many 68A's over there any more.

 

R160 - excellent optical illusion! Not only did you get a good headlight twinkle, but the photo makes the circle (6) look like it's only one car long!

 

Subway - wow, that sky doesn't even look like a sky! That's a nice, rustic photo.

Thanks for the comment (Z). All you guys have some very impressive shots if I should say so myself.

This particular one, that I haven't posted anywhere yet. It shows perfectly how 2 things are very much special to me. Of course the city background, and the LI locos. I feel that the railroad is much more important to me, rather than city transit. Of course it's only my preference. N'joy! :tup:

You're not allowed two. Which one is your best one?

Zman said pick only 1 pic bro. In first page. Daniel also posted double.

 

This is the one that is most likely my best with a train:
