Great use of the light - on the wheel, the green head up display, the evening light. Picture also lends this aircraft a personality.

Then I'll say it without remorse for you: That is one beautiful aircraft! Though I'm German I hope India choses the Rafale so that we in Europe at least can keep Dassault as an Option and don't rely solely on Airbus/EADS.

Not only is this a fantastic photo of a very interesting plane, but Vishal "enhanced" it's interest 5fold with his very fine and detailed comments! { I wish everyone would "take a lesson" from this..........)
(And yes, I LOVE "big" photos! )

This picture brings out the aerodynamic build of the aircraft. The head-on view seems almost perfectly aligned.
