Extremely creative photo! Great work on this photo. Usually the back of a plane is not the most interesting part of it, but this is fascinating as the plane struggles somewhat to land. Good job!

This photo is so amazing! I just think it looks so cool when it is landing. I love the hazy background of San Antonio! It is just an amazing photo. It it awesome the way the runway is black and the plane looks awesome against it!
