I'd just like to state the obvious: That picture is awesome. Wow!

It is the best of the pictures of its kind, the "looking down on an airliner" that's just taken off or is landing type. A target moving 200 MPH going five hundred feet below is not an easy shot -- great job Cecil!

Excellent shot, I even made it my new background! Most shots on A.net don't even come close to filling my whole screen, but with this shot I can just barely can fit the whole plane onscreen in my 1680 x 1050 native resolution with the background centered. Truly excellent!

What's with forgetting to record the registration through?!  Big grin

I was looking at this earlier. It is indeed a fantastic shot, but I can't help thinking that the vertical separation of only 500ft doesn't sound right. Even is 500ft was the minimum separation allowed, the 777 would have had to have stopped the climb until well clear of the photographers aircraft in order not to compromise the horizontal separation whilst climbing through his level.

This is not a criticism, just my curiosity. It's a great picture.

I'm impressed! This is one of those shots I keep going back to, there's so much to be seen.

There is one thing I'd like to ask though. Does anyone else also think it would have been an even better pic, if it had been centered? Or is it just so good that it doesn't need any cropping and centering? (not a criticism at all, just curious to see what people think about that)

I've actually been thinking about this since the first time I saw it. I wonder if I would have shot it how I would crop it. I guess I would have centered it, but not tight like a slide with almost no space left, but rather with more space on all ends, to bring in the environment.

Still after all, this uncentered photo is just great. No need for always following the rules ( the rules of A.net, not of photography ).

I agree with Edoca...my thoughts exactly. Still wish the shot were mine, however.
