I'm a commercial purist, and not really a fan of the military photos. But I have to say this is extraordinary. Everything about this photo makes me want to look more closely at the military pics on Anet. A big fat "10" for this incredible photo.....thanks L10fav

I love night shots where you see the lights fading into the distance. Also this picture is great because of the "exploding" fuel at take-off.

Visually stunning. The lighting, the igniting fuel, the departing aircraft; it all came together here to create the perfect photograph. Amazing shot.
