My Action Photo

The entertaining MyWinningPhoto site here on Xanga hosts weekly themed photo contests. Last week’s theme was “Action” and, unfortunately, I didn’t get my photo submitted by the deadline. Nonetheless, I thought I would share it with you.


Taken on the Thong Lo BTS Skytrain platform with a Panasonic Lumix LX3 – f/5.6 with a shutter speed of 1/1.3 seconds, a 24mm lens, and an ISO of 80. Hope you enjoyed – and don’t forget to go vote!

  1. @nov_way – Clean, modern, air conditioned… pleasant enough. It does get very crowded at rush hour but more train carriages are on order so that should lessen later this year.@CurryPuffy – Yeah, it was shot sometime around 6:30 pm. Inbound platform so not many people heading that way at that time of the day.

  2. It’s an awesome picture and what I like most is the reflection of the people waiting to get on the train :] oh and the fact that you can see the other side of the train

  3. i really like this photo – upon first glance it seems like a train pulling out of the station, but if you look closer, there seems to be many layers – like, the people in the image…are they still waiting across the platform, or are they reflections on the passing train…very nice 🙂

  4. I just bought a small Lumix camera before out trip to Hawaii.  16X zoom and 14 MB pictures – almost all the photos came out really well.

  5. @christao408 – What impressed me the most was the image stabilization.  I have a shot in my Hawaii pics of surfers on the Banzai Pipeline.  They were probably 200 yards away from me and I was max telephoto – handheld – and the shot came out great.  Mine is a Lumix DMC-ZS8 – and I got it at Best Buy at about half-price because a newer model just came out.

  6. And some people think you can only take good pictures of food and related items!!This is an amazing capture of the platform with the train rushing out. I couldn’t stop staring at it.
