Great angle and crop, and awesome lighting. Even looks a bit intimidating...might even qualify as sexy. 5-STAR image!

It looks so massive! And the light plays a big part in the quality of that shot. Well done sir.

Great capture, perfectly demonstrates the enormousness of this amazing bird. I wish I could rate it 380 ★s!

I don't find her beautiful very often, but at this angle she is hulking and massive and oh so graceful.

Kudos Duncan! Definitely one of the best A380 photos. Excellent perspective of the Flying Behemoth.

I am wondering what is the aerodynamic quality of this plane.

Though it may be caused by the reflection from the sun, the left wing criese does not seem to flow like the right wing does.

I agree with the others that this is a gorgeous shot from a unique angle. Not sure about the beer gut remark, to me it looks more like the A380 has "man boobs."

Definitely an unique angle shot! Can't they at least clean it up if they are going to use it as a showcase in an airshow?

This really captures the plane's girth. It reminds me of NASA's Space Shuttle.

You feel the power and awe at this beast flying towards you , excellent angle and detail. What are those little tabs or doors (1 pair below each wing close to the root) , something not readily noticed in other pictures .
Also this pic clearly shows the flaps are not slotted [as in the 747]. Is that because they are not fully extended ?

The horizontal stabilizer looks too massive. What's with that? Anyone know? Also there are four little doors open on the inboard area of the wing skin just under the landing lights. Two on each side. What are those?
