Riding High

The lush greenery of Bangladesh blurs past riders atop a train near Dhaka. The men are heading home to their villages, says Your Shot photographer A. M. Ahad, who captured the moment and submitted it to the 2015 National Geographic Photo Contest. "I am struck by how still and calm the riders are against the action of the moving train," photo editor Jeanne Modderman says. "[Ahad] captured this moment with great technique."
