A Dutch NS train rumbles into the station at the Hague ("Station Den Haag HS").

It was difficult not overexposing this shot! I had my Sigma 10-20 on my camera, and zoomed in to 20mm to get the smallest possible f-stop of F/32, which enabled me to go to 0.5 seconds at ISO100 (the trains move slowly when about to stop, and this was the train I had to get onto).

Would have been nicer without the laptop bag and if the person was more isolated and less blurry. But overall I'm very happy with this shot.

- cooler white balance (was measured incorrectly)
- slight crop to remove some blurred detail in right-hand edge

Nice use of a zoomblur and the bold yellow trains really stand out.

I'd like to see a slightly slower shutter speed.

You've picked the one film loads of people picked, but this is by far the best. Well done. 10 :-)

Funnily enough I expected loads of people would pick the same film as me, but they didn't. Oh well, that's by the by. Hope to see this on the front page next Wednesday morning.
