The size of the jet and the clarity of the pictures. I'm sorry but a person just can't help but saying, 'Wow'!

A visitor from Belgium posted Wed December 15, 2010:
Very nice exposure and clarity,shows the slenderness of the plane.Congratulations.

A visitor from United States posted Mon September 28, 2009:
I was awed by the chance coming together of the colors in the sky, plane ,and surounding mountains--it seemed as though the plane was painted this shade just for this moment

A visitor from United States posted Mon June 29, 2009:
Aircraft is goregeous

A visitor from United States posted Thu June 11, 2009:
The photographer chose a great vantage point and the planes surroundings is spectacular, including the rich, blue sky. Also, the plane's livery (like Air Force One) is interesting to look at. A great photo!

A visitor from - posted Sun April 6, 2008:
The focus is sharp; the lighting is good; the color is true. It is a beautiful shot of a 747.

Excellent photo with great clarity and detail

A visitor from Mauritius posted Thu September 6, 2007:
The pic appears to be taken from another aircraft, it captures a 747 in flight heading towards landing from the appearance on the landing gear. It also emphasises the horizon, an aspect often ignored in modern photography. the detail on the aircraft aslo point the the proes of the photographer.

A visitor from Australia posted Mon August 6, 2007:
The picture is very clear with not a blur spot on it. it has very minute details like the signs on the emergency doors.

A visitor from United States posted Tue July 24, 2007:

The photograph is predominately blue and bearingthat in mind the definition between colours is 1st class.
it is exceptionally good in that it shows the undercarriage in action

The colors are beautifull

A visitor from United States posted Mon March 20, 2006:
I love this photo because my favorite type of (passenger) aircraft is the boeing 747(-400). i also love it because it's a close-up so you can see it in detail like if somebodies window is open. every plane is different like this one, there is a spot where there are only two windows and a spot where there is only one emergency exit but i saw two in other photos but the picture is still one of my favorite photos. i love airplanes!

A visitor from India posted Sat February 18, 2006:
The backdrop is amazing.The aircraft looks awesome and can be termed as blue whale.

A visitor from Canada posted Wed January 25, 2006:
Great detail and nice backdrop

A visitor from Australia posted Thu November 10, 2005:
The clarity, focus & colours are great. The eyecathing striking colours of KLM are enhanced by the backdrop.It's a fantastic picture which reinforces the fact that this aeroplane is truly the Queen of the skies.

You can really feel that you are flying even though you are not. it makes you want to fly with no other crafts but BOEING 747s.

A visitor from United States posted Mon September 5, 2005:
Straight shot, well-defined, scenery does not detract from intended subject.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Tue August 23, 2005:
The clarity and position of the aircraft gives a highly detailed view of the plane itself
