    Gare Du Nord from above

    All aboard! We're looking for your best railroad photos in the latest Android Central Photo contest. Whether you're on the train yourself, crossing the tracks or just see the way a railroad fits into a landscape, we want to see you capture it with your Android.

    Three winners will have their photos picked for prizes in this contest, and have their work highlighted on Android Central for all to see. The prize is an iStabilizer smartFlex Flexible Leg Tripod, which should help with your future Android photography.

    Entering is easy. Just drop your entry in a post below. Tell us what Android you used to get the picture, and any back story you want to add to it. We'll pick a winner Tuesday (July 14) night at 11:59 PM ET, and announce them on the blog with next Wednesday's contest.

    • Pictures must be taken with an Android device
    • Pictures must be uploaded to the contest thread. I'm not running all over the Internet to track them down.
    • You have to tell us what device you used to take the picture, and any special software you might have used. Editing your pictures is fine — this is art.
    • Feel free to add a little back story — we want to know how the picture came to be.
    • You must have used a valid email address to register here at AC, so I know how to contact the winner.
    • Only one entry per contest per person.


    Good luck, everyone!

    I'll give it a shot this time. This shot was just barely taken with my LG G3 (fortuitous timing, I might add). The only editing I did was to crop the picture and do a basic adjustment of the color with Google Photos. This was on a stream train - engine number 40, Nevada Northern Railroad Museum - in Ely, NV. It really gives you a genuine taste as to how desolate railroading was back in those days.

    I'm actually surprised the shot turned out as well as it did, considering how fast we were going as well as how much the cars were swaying.

    FYI, I chose to edit the above picture one last time to bring out of the colors, still with just Google Photos. I'm curious which one you all would prefer.

    I think this shot was taken in 2013 with my Galaxy S4. It is a shot of the Long Island Rail Road's West Side Yard in Manhattan, shot from an upper floor of the Associated Press building. These trains are stored here in the afternoon and are all dispatched into Penn Station for the evening rush.

    Hi Everyone,

    This photo was taken in Hoosier Pass near Leadville, Colorado. It was shot with my OnePlus One. The train had stopped and we were able to disembark for a bit at the top of the pass (about 11,000 ft) to enjoy the views. The empty rails going around the bend caught my eye.

    First post around these parts.

    Photo taken with my Oneplus One, with no initial filter. Then touched up using the standard tools in Google Photos. I wanted to keep your focus on the platform and the light reaching down it mostly.

    Taken on a cool morning in Perth station, Scotland. On my way further north to see my folks. It's a quiet station mostly, and this is always the changing platform for me. You can see on the right, the old station walls and perhaps the original entrance archways.

    I took this photo in beautiful Alaska. I was standing on the caboose during a train tour of the Yukon, one of the most gorgeous places I've ever seen! Taken on my Galaxy SIII.

    1st Street bridge heading into downtown LA between two light rail tracks.
    The sunset was so beautiful on this particular evening so I decided to park the car before entering the bridge and walked across and back to snap a few photos.
    Photo taken with Note 4 cropped to 3:2 and vsco edit.

    Taken with GT-N7000 (original Galaxy Note international version) which still can take a pretty great photo, though I just let my daughter play with it now. Edited with Photo Editor app. This was taken a few years ago when people were shocked to see a Note device. It is the Western Maryland Scenic Railroad and I think the sepia effect really makes it look period appropriate.

    Shot with a Droid Turbo. Nothing special added, just cropped and sharpened a bit. I was stuck in Seattle traffic one day and liked the view.

    Taken on my HTC One m7, a much underrated camera, especially in low light. Edited with Snapseed. This is the Olympic Stadium in London, with the railways passing either side.

    Taken with my Moto X 1st Gen. Edited in directly from edit option in gallery.
    This was taken from in between Chennai and Delhi, India. Not sure of the place. It was dusk. The sun was just powerful enough to lighten up the scene.

    I took this picture at Union Station, on my way to NYC, with a Galaxy S5. I used PicSay Pro to add a few filters to it. I wanted it to look like an antique photo.

    Photo taken a while back while on the train going through the Queens, NY. Edited in snapseed. Unfortunately I lost the original pic and so I had to download this form facebook so it's more compressed than I would've liked. Taken on a Galaxy S4!!

    I have a new phone now though and it's the LG G4 so I'm excited to take more pics on this phone!
