Wow, can you believe how nicely the color elements (hues) work in this shot. The Dreamliner's deep blue and turquoise melts into the sky, in a nice linear fashion. As they say, "Timing Is Everything" and all the elements and timing came together here. So here she is crossing Sepulveda Eastway, a mere 200 feet above the street and 10 seconds from TD on runway 24R... and arriving some 16 minutes shy of high noon.

This photo shows fabulous distorted scale. The plane looks to be just above the tree and close to the ground but it is much further away. The effect is striking and memorable.

Another signature Paul Paulsen shot. Fantastic colors and composition! However I do not agree with the 1st comment: these super wide angle lenses always make objects look farther away. So the plane was actually closer to the tree top than shown on this photo.

Incredible Shot. I can't imagine what it would have been to be there to see it in person.
