1/20, f/5.6, ISO400, Canon EF-S 17-85mm IS USM. Sharpened in PS.

This is a Nozomi service JR700 series shinkansen or "bullet train" leaving Kyoto Station. The conductor is signaling that everything is ok and ready to depart. The shinkansen is the most convenient way to travel in Japan. It blasts its way across the country, taking only 2hrs and 20min from Kyoto to Tokyo with a max speed of 285km/h.

Taken at Kyoto Shinkansen Terminal, Kyoto, Japan.

I really appreciate the wonderful response on this! Fingers crossed for it! :)

Jill - no posing! Just all in the timing. The conductors all make this signal just before the train is about to leave to signal that the platform is clear. The shinkansen platforms are great for photography. There's always so much going on! :)

WOW ~ BIG WOW!!! Fantastic shot Chris! Many many congratulations this is so well deserved! There is a train fanatic in the room with me at the moment and he was ecstatic about the picture! But he'd heard there was a lot of groping going on in the bullet train and when one of the gropers got off the train some people chased him up the platform and he fell over and died!!

Thanks so much for the kind words, Jeff and Kate :)

Kate - no groping going on in the bullet trains. They are really spacious with more room than an aeroplane. The groping is more infamous on the insanely crowded local trains in Tokyo. I haven't heard about that terrible story but sounds more like something that would happen during peak hour(s) in Tokyo.

Chris, I'm coming late to looking at the winning photos this month, but this one just stopped me. I love it. It's a story and a ritual. And you caught it beautifully. I just like looking at it.
