Fantastic! Due respect for al pilots, but the guys on firefighting aircraft have real guts and skill, maneuvering these big heavily laden beasts into the tightest corners and pinpointing their drops at very low level. High quality and dramatic picture. Very well done Alfredo!!

Looks like the photographer may have gotten wet! Great close up of this workhorse of firefighting. These guys fly tree level in nearly a landing configuration to get the water on the fires. Everyone one of these pilots is a hero and their aircraft is their trusty stallion. Great shot!

Apart from the dramatic perspective - the aircraft and trees are presented in beautiful colour. A nice crystal clear image.

The color of the photo is fantastic. The setting (rising?) sun creates the perfect reddish hue and combines with the smokey grey in the bottom center.

Fantastic photo, most photographers get focused on the airplane and forget about the water...this shows the action just perfectly. Light is perfect. Very good shot!
