I really love the first one, what shutter speed is that?

I like them both but maybe a touch more movement inside the carriage on the second would improve it but that's just my opinion.

for the first one, the shutter is at about 2s i think. it is actually a merge of a couple of different photos. one for left train, one for right, extra people, that sort of thing.

the issue with having a longer shutter speed for the second one was that it had to be hand held. the trains weren't always stopping at the same point, so i had to rush into a positions, kneel down, compose and take a hand held photo before it drove off. (you can see the door has already closed).

I love the first picture, however, what could have made it truly brilliant is if you had a subject (person) like the chap that was sat there, looking straight at the camera with a serious face and not moving so he/she were perfectly still whilst the world rushes past around them....

Very nice! Well taken....
