This is a great shot because the subject in the foreground is absolutely clear and the nice little touch of the CRJ in the background does not take anything away from the main focus. Rich saturated colours and excellent sharpness. The reflection of the Dash 8 is another great part. Keep it up!!!

A fine demonstration of long "exposure time"; the photographer managed to capture several seconds of real life and compress them in a eyeblink "snap shot". Mike

Excellent shot! Everything seems to have come out just right, and that's one awesome backround. The Dash alone like that would make for a great shot, but the CRJ and the lightning behind combine to make what I think is one of a.net's best.

Whoa! This shot has more than enough things that make a shot special:
-Night shot of a well-lit a/c
-A/c taking off but only lights can be seen* because of the long exposure
-A lightning can be seen clearly crisply

*At two positions I can clerly see the taking-off aircraft - a CRJ. Can anyone inform me what causes this?

You can see at two positions the CRJ because of the lightning.

I love the way the Dash 8 is illuminated just slightly with the lightning in the background at the nose. The plane has a wonderful contrasting orange to the dull colors around it that makes it stand out, as well as how often are you lucky enough to catch a shot that opportune? Great shot and perfect timing!

This photo is amazing, from the CRJ and Dash 8, to the lightning behind the nose, to the reflection of the jet on the ground. Truly compelling, perfect timing, and the best photograph I have ever seen of AnyThing, let alone and airliner!

Absolutely incredible. I love the way the CRJ in the background is silhouetted with lightning flashes twice during the exposure. I think the lightning hidden behind the foreground plane was a big factor in making this a great shot, silhouetting the back of the plane and the clouds (or mountains?)above. I've been browsing airliners.net photos for a long time and this one made my jaw drop.

Just amazing! There were two thunderbolts while taking this photo! The taking off CRJ is clearly lit two times. That's when the light of the bolt ''hits'' them! Wonderfull, This shot would even have been amazing without the aircraft. Now think about how amazing I find it WITH the aircraft!
