I kind of liked this shot from the start, but it did not really get that much of attention when it was first uploaded.
About 6 days later the shot all of a sudden accumulated 7K views and I was quite surprised.

Thanks for all who voted. This is my first shot appearing in the "photographer's choice" section.

Well yeah Vasco. Very, very nice shot.
Good quality, nice angle and my favourite aircraft  Wink

Were you standing on that concrete bunker when you took it?

I find it kind of strange to read that from a photographer liek you are. Nice pic - no need to tell you that it is well done.

I like how you can see that the FO is flying and the Captain appears to be reaching for the gear handle. Nice shot!

Yes, I was thinking about moving a bit further to the south, but a lot of people were standing there and I was not in the mood of carrying the equipment around anymore.

A common scenery at INN, but however nicely catched - well done. Why the self-plug if the picture went out good regarding hits anyway  Wink

Thats quite shameless indeed  Big grin

I think he means that he's a little shocked to see that you haven't gotten a top of Photographer's choice yet given your quality of work.

I think "Photographers' Choice" can also be interpreted as referring to a photographer's choice of location! Big grin
