Amazing photo... Tack sharp, and the colours are so many and lively, really vibrant. Lights everywhere, even the one on the top right between the leaves, wonder what it even is, another street light? Streamers behind the triple, and just great clean and reflective body, & nice landing lights. Last but not least the white car bottom left reminds me of a cop car, Ford Crown Victoria I think, which in this setting reminds me of the movie 'Drive'.

Awesome Night Shot Mr.Scott, I've been spotting for many years but never tried to take shot like that. I'm inspired and will try to take shot like that.

Must be a difficult shot. good creativity! I could imagine the beautiful sight of seeing the gigantic airplane slowing gliding through the sky at night!

Just a stunning shot taken from a perfect angle that exploits the lights of the boulevard! PC
Very well done, also beacuse I isn't easy to take quality pictures with no light...

A great job, Scott! ;)

Wonderful shot. I feel a little nostalgia from it too. I remember when I was 5 going down this road to the airport on my return back home to London.

Thanks all for the kind comments. Some have asked on here and also in the photography forums what the exposure was. I forgot to include that information in the remark. This was photographed with the Canon 6D and the 135mm f/2 lens at 1/80s and ISO 3200. -SKA

One of my all-time images from LAX. Terrific work by Mr. Arfin to capture the 777 is such excellent detail while maintaining night street activity that occurs beneath the arriving aircraft. Wonderful exposure and color balance.

Absolutely perfect. One of my favorite airlines to see on a night arrival with the tail illumination on one of the best roads in the world to capture an arriving aircraft in profile. 5*+

This panorama reminds all those high nights at Kowloon Street when the aircrafts used to pass over to complete the IGS and land at RWY 13 in Kai Tak. The spirit remains!!
