    From this angle, things are shaping up nicely.

    I tried to find a clear picture of the shot of Bond walking along the platform while Grant stalks him in the background, following along the inside of the train. No joy though, unfortunately. That would have been my number one choice.

    Fabulous! Thank you! It's such a simple shot but it's incredibly well blocked and the Barry suspense underneath is sublime.

    Completely missed the vote for DN and shot submission for FRWL.
    My vote goes to #7 as this is also the shot I would have chosen.

    Not just a great scene but a shot that encapsulates the masterful, classy and tense espionage feeling of the novel.

    These are all great ones @CraigMooreOHMSS and @R1s1ngs0n but I would argue that if a picture is worth a 1000 words then this shot realises the book's vision and makes it iconic.

    Excellent choice and you're absolutely correct re: iconography.
