This is one of the most unique perspectives I've ever seen of an aircraft taking off. The fact that it's a gorgeous 747 makes this shot even better!

It is beyond belief!!!! Normally, I'm free of giddiness but this time even a picture makes my head swim!!! No doubt, this one gets 5 stars. Everything else would be unworthily. Really, no words...

Excellent detail and a unique angle. Usually, an airplane at this degree of climb is photographed from the side or behind.

Amazing angle and timing, and the hint of the plane's shadow really gives it a sense of the astonishing moment. I've seen this photo many times, and every time, I have to look at it closer.

Remarkable shot! I can't imagine how this could have been done with such detail. The foreshortening of the telephoto (plus the tail shadow) gives the illusion that the 747 is much closer to the ground. Congratulations on a superb shot!
