One word: jetwash. Visually, the photo is very appealing and this makes you want to look at it again and again. Congrats on a superb shot.

The plane is close to people - so it seems. The plane, the heat effect and the way the picture is "composed". It shows the wonder of airplanes. And in a very creative way it shows fighter power.

Great picture, very dynamic. The reason the Russian plane is painted red, white and blue is that those are the colors on the Russian flag.

The importance of hot air from the engines and the crisp picture of the jet contrasts with the background. We can feel the jet coming and that gives a very good idea of the balance of aerodynamic strength on the craft.

Beauty. The angle of the plane coupled with the heat haze and the backgorund give the shot a real sense of action and 3D. Excellent composition - congratulations

The clarity is unbelievable, and to have a Mig at this altitude just off the crowd line, must be an adrenaline rush for pilot and spectator!

This picture shows how brutal flying can become when technology goes beyond the balance between aerodynamics and engine power, the latter becoming primordial.Very impressive, but still beautiful??

The way the heat from the engines show up is great. It blurs out the background, which is still visible in other parts. The wingtip trails blend in nicely.

Cool angle. Fascinating and beautiful how the heat from the engines distorts. Smoke from wingtips adds action. Great-looking aircraft. Only down-side is the crummy old building in the background and the grey sky, but you can't have everything. Great photo.

The composition of the picture catches the beauty of the aircraft when captured flying, the clarity of the background not in the exhaust,and the effects of the heat of the exhaust on the people and background buildings.
