Final parade rehearsal over capital of Russia. You can see two old Stalin's skyscrapers that were built in 1950es and between them new business center "Moscow city". Great contrast between past and present!

Great picture! The contrast reminds me of the view of London from the top of the hill at Greenwich.

Beautiful photo and a difficult choice top make since you have to decide between an attractive scenario composition or a close up in the aircraft.

Yeah great photo :) I think it's nice showing the past and present. In Warsaw It's also that building like this one. It was a gift from Stalin. But it's aviation portal so nice catch of this Il-87 :)

Without the military aircraft the sheer contrast in cityscapes provides a startling photo, with the military aircraft it's like a whole extra layer on the cake
