Remark Photographer
VH-OQI (cn 055) Three things I have seen before but never all at the same time: night flying, condensation on the wings, and rainbows. This time the airplane's own landing lights are scattering through the condensation, producing a rainbow of sorts! Qantas 94 off to Melbourne via 24L. 135mm f/2 1/40s ISO 4000, handheld.

Simply an amazing and atmospheric photo of epic proportions, conveying the majesty, wonder and sheer enormity of the A380. Completely ruined by the watermark.

A very difficult shot, well done! I really had to think a moment until I got that the illuminated thing with the logo under the tail is one of the left hand engines... :D
