I was browsing through the latest additions today to see if I could find anything interesting and found this hidden gem (336 views at this point):

Not a challenging or even original shot by any means, but the simplicity and cleanliness of it made me go WOW!

Couple things made me say "WOW"

First, the actual accident. Then the photo of the damage. Then the photographer. Nice to see that old timer around

Old timer Ron?  
Thanks pal. I still can't believe it happened. I was listening to the ATC tower from my car police scanner and could not believe my ears when the 767 pilot announced that he thinks he struck the RJ.
Wow! I should have stayed where I was in South Boston though . It would have been a nice photo from Drydock up top of that Massport building that houses all of the freight companies.

The first one has some great lighting on it and gives me a very old-school/classic feeling, while the second one got me looking aswell, getting the feeling the photographer was on the runway at the time of the photo.

Most of Gavin's shots are WOW shots actually. One of my favorite collections on Anet.

The first photo above did actually make me go wow, the colours and mood are excellent, even if the shot might not be too difficult. Well executed and worthy.

Maybe not completely original but IMO it's quite challenging indeed. He's nailed that exposure perfectly, something in these kind of shots that needs quite a bit of experience. I normally (accidently) slightly over-expose the Sun or under-expose the entire image. He's done well. A very nice picture and one I'd love to have taken. Good call J.

That's how the song goes I think. And it's entirely appropriate.   Great weather contrasting the white plane.

Hey, thank you so much! Much appreciated. I had some wonderful comments on this photo, it's quite humbling! I really appreciate the feedback and the comments here as well. I'm glad I dug this out of my hard drive!

Well this shot made me say wow last week. I'm not sure the light could get any better and the photog really nailed it. Seeing what people are doing with this lens, Nik (I think), Randall, etc. also has me really impressed.

Unfortunately it's hard to get anything like that without a full frame professional body! No doubt an amazing shot but also a big investment!

Oh, and I've just noticed a 'like' button for fb on the top of pictures.. Hmm..

It's indeed a great photo, I like it alot! But don't sell your equipment short, it may be a little harder for prosumer bodies to do something along those lines, but it can be done. Perfect exposure, steadiness, correct type of lens and careful editing goes a long way on even prosumer bodies.

The thing about that shot, or shooting the stars at night in general, without a rig to track the sky as it moves during exposure, you need an incredibly high ISO to keep the exposure time to a minimum. There is no way that my 7D could take it at that quality, especially quality good enough for Airliners.net.

Kavin have done a great job. Just magic! Do not remember such a sky made from the airplane.

12.800ISO is a good thing. My 5D has 6.400 and I'd be happy to try to get something the same. But for this I have to go to the southern side of the planet. These guys are lucky to have the sky we never had on the north.
