Excellent picture. Excellent use of tele objective, excellent composition, perfect timing, great sense of action and power. I guess the pilot had to deal with strong cross wind at the moment he started to rotate considering the background of the picture where you can see that the water is very agitated. Congratulations to the photographer

This is one of the coolest shots I've seen in a long time. To get a 75 that close up on such a steep climb with the gear down against nothing but water is a one in a million shot. This is the reason I visit Airliners.net every day.

This photo deserves more than the 5 stars I'm allowed to give it. It's just an amazing angle of a commercial airliner that's in flight.

Great angle















I love the steep climb angle of flight, with the 'dirty' look of gear down, and the blurred background caused by the heat trailing from the hard working engines.
