The picture combines the best of artistry and precision. The crisp linbes of the aircraft are so clear, and at that angle, we also get a sense of the true wingspan of a 744. The artistic side: the shadow of course, with the afternoon(?) light; last but not least, moving the plane to the side really gives a sense of movement, even in such a "frozen" instant.

Wow! This truly looks like a miniture model of a 747 and a shot taken In a studio. Everything about this image just appears to be studio. Almost as If you can grab the plane with you hand! Stunning!

Wow! How does one get shots like that? :-)

Look at the level of detail you can see in the shadow. You can spot the nose landing gear, all four engines, a part of the main landing gear, slats and wingtips - and you can almost tell it's a 747! :-)

I swear this is the most photographed Delta 747 on the internet. I flew on this plane to the Philippines and see it in almost every Delta 747 photo. Great shot! This plane gets around :)
