This photo is just Fantastic, everything!, the blue-white lights, the blue sky, brightness, sharpness. Simply a Great Shot. Perhaps the only detail would be the blue glare in the middle, but besides that, Impressing!!

This is an awesome photo. The An 124 is really brought to life in this photo. The lights the plane and the night sky are just excellent. The tail on this plane looks stunning and the photgrapher has really shown how great it really is. Great photo.

Fantastic atmosphere. I like night-shots and this one is wonderful. The light beams generated by the optics (8-blade diaphragm, I think) look very nice, besides the Antonov of course. Good exposure. :)

The colors, lighting and all... great atmosphere in a darkening evening. Not so often we get this "mammoth" in Finland :).

It really is a great photograph. The combination of colour and lighting is what makes this picture standout. The last twilight vestiges in the sky, the green grass highlighted by airport flood lights, the twinkle effect of the taxi lights and the grey, white and blue of the AN-124 itself I find captivating. I put it up as my computer screen background. My son is enthralled by it. Thank you Petri Poutanen!

The blue ramp lights meld beautifully with the colors of the aircraft. Plus the lights from the field shine from the bottom of the nose of the plane in the same wonderful blue glow.

Such an unusual sight for one who lives in the Northwest U.S. This jet looks like it just rolled off the assembly line!

Thanks for the shot - I would love to see more.
