Alexis D: The sample images look good but not special to me. I suppose it's similar the 12-60mm f/2.8-4. Nothing "Leica" in the IQ.

@AbrasiveReducer What size of "Made in China" would make you happy?

Is where it is made even relevant? Neither do I think small font size is dishonest.

@straylightrun, As a matter of interest, what would you class as a "real" Leica considering the M10 isn't 100% made in Germany.

Sarah Terra: Lol, love the picture for the simple fact it angers liberals. You can look forward to many many of these shots from me in the future.

@Yxa No good because they'll only run into all the left wing people running in the opposite direction.

I would prefer it if all right wing people are just shot. Oh! Does that statement make me right wing?

Freedom and Free speech means the accepting of radical and alternate views and ideas, even if they seem to you unpalatable. If you don't like that set-up go and live in Saudi Arabia.

runbei99: Hm, upon reflection the solution seems simple. Don't stand on the tracks. At least use a selfie stick, and if it's private property get a really, really long one.

The photographer can always use a drone. That way if the worst happens only the model and drone get taken out and one funeral instead of two. The photog can go on and sell the moment of impact to NatGeo.

The Name is Bond: It may be so obvious that no one has thought of it, but the solution is evidently for the photographer to stand just to the left of the tracks.

@ The Name is Bond: I was joking. Play on meaning of "bloody impact". Sorry, I found it funny anyway.

Gollan: Train tracks are dangerous, but I'm not going to cast stones. My solo wilderness photography takes me to some extreme environments and terrain. I've had close calls and I still go out. Some of the best photos we see were the result of great personal risk.

@PazinBoise you haven't been to Newport at 11pm on a Friday night.

RGBCMYK: I am only outraged that an average image like this got so many likes on instagram. What is it that prompted the like button?

I like the photo. I think it's good, well, except for the bloke on the horse.

SushiEater: How do we know it is an active train track?

In the UK trespass is not illegal*

*except for railway property, MOD land etc.

In reply to:

daddyo: I don't see a problem with the subject image unless:

A. The subject's shoes were nailed to the cross ties, or

B. The image was captured from the engine of an on-coming train.

If either is true, then I too am outraged!

You forgot C.

C. The subject is clothed.

Samuel C: If the hypocrisy of outrage or minimizing the risk taken here was an odor nobody here would be able to take a deep breath for the stifling stench of cow manure.
First, those Neanderthals using terms like "snowflake" are the same alt-right, Tea Party, epithet slinging anarchists who would be fine with a person trespassing on their land being shot on site. Land ownership is probably the single thing they think should be defended, either by law enforcement or a weapon. Now people are saying "don't trespass on private property to do something unnecessarily dangerous" and the objection is telling people how to live their lives?
Secondly, recommending people not do stupid, illegal things shows the kind of concern for human life that those who use terms like "snowflakes" claim to have.
It's private property. It's dumb. Also, don't stand in a road to snap photos: you have zero right to be there. And lastly, forcing someone to watch you die is the most egocentric inconsideration possible.

Aww! You're no fun!

... and wait until the model is taken out by the train. At least the photo will make a bloody impact.

You could have got arrested! Or was someone else using the handcuffs?

I had an alarm fitted to my snowflake. Didn't last long. Melted.

Look on the bright side. Fatal acts of stupidity filter out those humans that shouldn't be allowed to pass on their stupid genes. Mankind benefits as a result. It's a win-win situation.

I love the one with the bear. It was obviously the ginger fatso that got it. The one with the girl I think was more dangerous to the passing motorist than to the girl. The skyscraper one just gave me vertigo. The lava photo was flaming good and the other one, well, I just couldn't give a Dam.
