This is one where you really do have to click the thumbnail, i wasnt a fan until i looked at it full size to see the train in the distance.

I can't believe it has so few views (and no SC). That's some great photography, as we've come to expect from Nick. Now he'll get another hit from me.

Nick definitely has the eye. He's one talented photographer!

This image is no exception.

Wow, thanks for the kind words guys, much appreciated. Funny thing is, the school bus actually floored it as soon as the lights and bells activated. Now, it was no big deal since P07 runs at about 10 MPH, but not exactly the reaction I would hope a school bus driver would have. I had some frames with just the train closer up, but I thought the bus made for a more dynamic crossing scene.

Excellent piece of photojournalism, Nick!!!
So I'm sitting here looking at the shot, thinking to myself, "that has to be the LOUSIEST photoshop job I've ever seen - why don't these other guys see that?"

Then I realize I'm looking at reflection of the lens visor.




Nice shot.
