Dear Santa all i want for XMASis 2 tickets to SXM! WOW this has to be the lowest approach I've seen at Juliana,I bet that any passengers who have never been or never seen a SXM approach must be pretty worried when they lookout of teir windows.

Best shot of St. Maarten nowadays because of the sharpness and the great color of the water! Fantastic shot! I'd like to see a few US airlines at this place from this angle with your quality! Congratulations to one of the top photos of 2007! Lufthansi

Very nice and different from the typical St. Maarten shots - no people, no fence, just the brilliant blue ocean and a beautiful white bird reluctantly coming back to earth.

Fantastic! Without the plane the photo would be an excellent beach picture. But so it is unbelievable.

Sat on the beach under the A-340 in August at Maho Beach. Absolutely breathtaking experience! The sounds and sensations blew me away, almost literally. This shot takes me back to that moment. Thanks

Not the same old picture of the famous St. Maarten approach. Nice perspective, balance, and color. How did you get the waves to break at exactly the right time?!!! :)

Excellent background cloud framing with an overall outstanding blend of hues, and quite the picturesque breaking of waves.

Great colour and great composition. Excellent use of the rule of thirds. What really makes it is the wave breaking on the shore. It all feels very peaceful and slow yet we know it is quite the opposite. Well captured.

Immaculate photo; immaculate fuselage. That peninsula reflection by the wing makes the whole composition almost incomparable as st. maarten appraoches go

Why do they come in so LOW??? Isn't it against
safety rules to go below a safe glideslope?

Will you look at those waves lapping at the coast?

Great color saturation; the contrast between the all-natural and the high-tech supernatural is elegantly captured here. These days w/ so much 'photoshopping,' this pic almost merits a caption: "This was not Photoshopped." The final thing I like is the shadow of the big bird in the water at right. Whoosh! You can feel what the photographer felt in this shot. Bravo!
