Holy cow, what an awesome shot! The reflection of the dawn (horizon)on the wings and fuselage, these bright contrails! That glint on the nose tops it off! Fantastic!

Absolutely fantastic. One of the best aviation-photos I've ever seen in my life and I think that LH would agree

Beautiful shot! There's a perfect balance of sunlight and shade here. And, this aircraft alone is gorgeous, so that's an obvious plus! Very professional. Well done! Consider showing this to Lufthansa, will you?

I think this is a wonderful shot. All color nuances are perfectly defined, a special difficult topic to reach in the case of Lufthansa. Congratulations.

Just amazing. When aboard a aircraft in mid-flight, one tends to forget just how dynamic the aircraft must appear from the outside, and this perfectly captures the intense speed and dynamism of high altitude, cruise speed flight.

I'm glad to say that Lufthansa is a true Boeing customer, being the one to save the 737, and now to continue the 747 with the 747-8, I know i probably wont however I wish one day a I could see a Lufthansa 747-8 here at MIA......
