Split second shot. nice contrast of bright blast with dark ocean. also, flares seem to have fast, high energy effect. clouds on the other hand, have calming effect.

5 Stars for level of difficulty in getting a shot like this. One of a kind. Stunning image that draws your attention to the intense light. At first glance, it looks like some form of space-age propulsion. Captures the sense of motion and power of the Hornet. How did you get this shot?
