one of the entrances..there is railway here,
and the other side is the Dalit quarters..
you have to walk over the railway..(after the train for sure!.. ;)
It is dangereous because many trains come and go without warning and they are mostly fast and the kids are everywhere..
this old lady was waiting for her turn..
Moti bagh area/New Delhi
Ps. Its pure luck btw! ;)

This is GREAT, Everen, without reserve. The tilt is right on here but what really KILLS here...is the fleeting figure "behind bars" seen through the window of the passing train walking in the opposite direction from the woman in the foreground.
Into my FAVs.
You made my day today!

i fully agree with francis, this is this type of images that you spot rarely: decisive moment 100%;
excellent composition with the tilt enhanced the motion effect;
best wishes, j.
RGatward (20066) 2006-03-15 3:58
Yes, also, I agree with Francis here, absolutely brilliant, and more than a little luck involved. I think I'll have to edit my favs.

wahow! good shot... two women walking in opposite direction & this big train passing at same time! very good synchronisation...

What to sat after Francis's comment?
Have a nice day
markoci (3933) 2006-03-15 4:09
i'd say double luck (i mean she could be wearing green) however the compo, camera settings were all your choices. excellent work!
ckuan (270) 2006-03-15 4:12
What an excellent shot! The blurred fast moving train, the old woman seemly walking oh-ever-so slowly, and that hint of red/orange dress across one of the train window.
pridel (233) 2006-03-15 4:14
Like Francis said this is really great !
It is a very successful photograph, because it collected a rare timing. The note supplements well this image. I love this orange monk of the background.
It is incredible.

Hi Evren, all have already said... great tilt and lovely timing.... Bala
arnabchat (7233) 2006-03-15 4:53
what can i say, too good. i really appreciate the way you have the woman in red through through the window there. great!
the tilt works nicely.
AnimeshRay (9089) 2006-03-15 13:21
Wow! Evren, this is one amazing shot!! Did you use a motor drive/multiple exposure (whatever you call it)? Or was it just luck?
nwoehnl (122) 2006-03-15 14:40
Wow, what a rare mix of timing and luck to have the red-dressed person in the back precisely framed by the moving train. Good use of the tilt and nice inclusion of the old woman in the foreground of this balanced and vivid compo. Great work, Evren.

Hi Evren, of course I agree with Francis, but I also agree with Mark, she could have been dressed in green, that would have looked differentle, but without any lick no one will survive (although I think your Dalit friends did not get their share). This is a beauty Evren, very nice catch! The motion blur on the train is great!
designsoul (21492) 2006-03-15 18:12
No such thing as pure luck, Evren! You were there as you HAD to be there as you are a great photographer to see what needs to be seen!
The tilt is amazing but even more so is the red-dressed figure in exactly the same position walking as the woman in the foreground, while the train sweeps along in a generous motion blur... superb, Evren!
Drzoana (1122) 2006-03-15 19:08
Another fantastic image.
You are not a photographer. You're an artist.
An inspiration, Evren.
bishansamaddar (868) 2006-03-16 3:16
what a decisive moment here!
the clinching point of the picture is the woman in red seen through the window... the composition is as good as it can get.
dolin (15703) 2006-03-16 4:15
Superbe ca, c'est incroyablement dynamique et bien maitrisé.
Superbe timing avec cette personne en orange que l'on voit à travers la vitre. Bonne vitesse qui créée du mouvement et le tilt amplifie le côté dynamique.
J'aime bien les tons de couleurs également.
adrost (2378) 2006-03-16 13:41
Beautifull compo and this two Women in saree.
KevRyan (22956) 2006-03-16 18:12
Recognising the quality of your luck is as good as planning for it my friend - this is luck of quality imho - a great shot - the combination of movement blur and sharpness is just great - the tilt is fine - the colour relationships work so well - very nice work!
bullabulla (3488) 2006-03-17 6:40
Beautiful this one Evren
love the composition the tilt
the girl in red toward the window is magic here.
Luko (14000) 2006-03-17 6:52
Of course there's the luck factor, but you also know the documentary photogs motto "f/8 and be there!", well you were "f/2.8 and there" and that's how nice surprizes dressed in red appear.
A tilt that makes sense : I can feel that train running.

i love this pics and composition
i love railway
good to have this woman in background
recepyuksel (17808) 2006-03-21 9:28
burada eğimin etkisi müthiş güzel. trenin hareketiyle oluşan blur da süper. fakat benim asıl hoşuma giden küçük bir ayrıntı: aralıktan gözüken küçük kırmızılı kişi, bu harika...
capthaddock (28790) 2006-03-29 10:06
Hello Evren - I don't know if it's luck or sorcery but fantastic timing and just the right tilt. My favourite part is the figure in red seen walking behind the blurry window, and the way it balances the woman in front with their backs turned going in opposite directions. MMhh yes, it's a favourite.
Luan (12971) 2006-03-30 14:38
Wow, such an incredible compo, I don't know how you manage to so well balance the picture with the 2 diferents women. Impressive timing
munki (1305) 2006-04-01 4:34
Excellent tilted composition. I like how you have captured the two women at the right time.
Fixfocus (9385) 2006-04-03 13:46
The balance in your compo is perfect with a wonderful triangle of the women in the foreground/train passenger/and the red women in the background.
