This one is quite simply breathtaking! It got my vote on photographers choice and 5 stars. I know that technically, it might not be extremely difficult - but hey, just look at it! The light and the angle are superb.

How can anyone not love that photo.  Smile

Yes, the Vimy for me as well.

A colleague of mine had the best reaction to it - with a stunned and shocked "my gosh, is that real" question.   Pretty awesome photo.

Thanks Dan, appreciate it!

This one I just love the colors, love the 1600px of high quality clarity! Look at those clouds. It's a photo I would like to have as my desktop.

Beautiful golden light from the clouds, and interestingly clean white colours on the plane. Caught my eye.

Weimeng yet again captures a great image. Cool illusion as well. When you see it in the small size, it looks like a tail-strike, but the plane is well airborne.

Had this been a guy in the frame there would've been a thread up by now questioning its acceptance, no 'aggrieved' viewers in this case i hope

Vishal, thanks! It took some planning and multiple failed or mediocre attempts before the stars aligned for this one. I'm very glad you liked it!

Did you meter for the sky & shoot it ?
What AF Points ?

What AF Points ?

In my experience, shooting against a sunset like this can result in very inconsistent metering. So, yes, I metered against the sky but I took a couple of test shots to make sure I was happy with the result (IIRC, I had to add maybe -2/3 exp comp). I then set the camera to M to have one less thing to worry about.

I used one AF point near the bottom and on the skyline. I knew that shooting this wide, lack of depth-of-field will not be a problem.

The most challenging aspect was that given how fast the planes would pass overhead, I basically had a single shot to get it right. If I missed the first one, the plane was already too far away on the second one.

If you're interested, here's the EXIF: 1/320sec, f/6.3, ISO 400, at 10mm.

Not bad for the old XTi, eh?

Even if the 747 is mighty, meeting one of these also will make one feel small:

'Motive'. If appealed, the head screener's comment on appeal rejection would be something like, "Focus should be on the aircraft and not the animal."

Lightroom 3. This week I got two ISO 1600 shots accepted which, without LR3, would have been a lost cause.

^ Nice find that, its one of those photos that grows on you the more you look at it..........

About this current #1 shot, love the aperture blade/flower petal effect or whatever you call it.

Nice contrast of colours too !
Ironic isnt it that such a splendid piece of art is born out of a potential disaster for the airline.
This would've been a 90~100 minute turnaround flight but for this (below) she had to towed to the hanger for a longer than predicted stay resulting in the photo above.
