Train Runner, by Ashik Masud

On my way to Kishoreganj by train I found this boy name Masum seating on an open door when the train was running. This is very risky but he is a regular train rider. Due to the huge population in the country, as well as for shocking poverty, many people are forced to borrow a ride now and then. Some are so poor that they cannot even buy ticket. He is one of them.

The photo has everything what should be shown in perfect exposure. It shows outstanding composition, motion frozen in a frame, excitement of the situation and drama. A brilliant moment registered in a frame.
