Perfect! 10 stars!

A visitor from - posted Wed July 20, 2011:
It's symmetry + leading lines! awesome! i suppose the lighting could have been better though. but nonetheless a great shot!

A visitor from India posted Fri May 6, 2011:
Fantastic timing! There are times when a pic appears on airliners for which you can actually say: "Wow! Now that's an amazing shot!". The symmetry is beautiful! A rare piece of "art"...nice idea...
5 stars! :-D

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sat March 5, 2011:
Amazing composition

A visitor from - posted Sat March 5, 2011:
Great timing!

A visitor from - posted Sat March 5, 2011:
Just stunning... No other words are needed! This is an art, on top of being an aviation photography

A visitor from Venezuela posted Thu November 25, 2010:
It is timing, framing, composing and a high dose of creativity and patience. It's just perfect!. Congratulations Jacques.

A visitor from - posted Thu November 25, 2010:
Simply stunning. Perfect symmetrical framing between the towers without overlap. Excellent composition. Practically demands five stars.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Thu November 25, 2010:
That is one superb photo.

A visitor from Kuwait posted Thu November 25, 2010:
Very nice photo

A visitor from Belgium posted Thu November 25, 2010:
This photo was shot from in-between the approach lights of Brussels Airport's 25L (the lights are outside the airport's perimeter, in a field). A very frustrating place as our authorities did everything they could those last year to block the view to the runways, prohibit parking... but as we can see creative photographs shine even more in adverse conditions. Congratulations for this original point of view !

A visitor from - posted Mon November 22, 2010:
The towers are obviously the approach lighting

A visitor from Netherlands posted Wed October 20, 2010:
Wow, what a timing ...

A visitor from United States posted Tue October 19, 2010:
Yes, the timing is absolutely perfect. There is only one thing lacking; this photo evokes a lot of questions......what are the towers, how did the idea come about to catch the plane where it is, equipment used, is it a sequence shot, etc, etc.
This fellow would be great at doing lightning photography!

A visitor from United States posted Tue October 19, 2010:
Symmetry rocks!! :)

A visitor from - posted Tue October 19, 2010:
I'd just like to amplify what everyone else is saying....great shot. Look, you can even see the gap between the slats and the wing.

A visitor from Australia posted Tue September 21, 2010:
Nice setup I like the way time was put into this Photo.

A visitor from Portugal posted Wed September 8, 2010:

A visitor from Canada posted Wed July 9, 2008:
This is probably the most artistic shot I've seen on a.net

A visitor from Czech Republic posted Fri July 4, 2008:
Very interesting place for spotting :-)

A visitor from - posted Fri July 4, 2008:
Wow! Amazing shot! It must have taken quite some time to prepare for such a perfect shot.

A visitor from United States posted Thu July 3, 2008:
This is not an airplane photo. This is modern art.

A visitor from United States posted Thu July 3, 2008:
The lighting is dramatic. The towers on either side of the frame provide an interesting, seldom seen element. The timing of the shot was phenomenal. PERFECT!

A visitor from United States posted Thu July 3, 2008:
Great eye on this one, the angle of the towers and wings are almost in perfect sync.

A visitor from Kazakhstan posted Thu July 3, 2008:
Really nice to see something new!

Nice * * * * and Good think .

A visitor from Czech Republic posted Wed June 25, 2008:
Very good picture. Anyway I'm more than sure it's not Alitaia plane. The registration on the wing is nearly illegible but shows something beginning "SX-", definately not "I-"

A visitor from New Zealand posted Wed June 25, 2008:
Excellently composed shot, very original.

A visitor from Canada posted Wed June 25, 2008:

Awsome perfest timing

A visitor from United States posted Wed June 25, 2008:
What a spectacularly good photo! Outstanding composition, moody lighting, a new and unusual take on the classic approach shot -- this should be an immediate add to the Editors Choice collection.

A visitor from Austria posted Wed June 25, 2008:
Excellent Timed and very melancholic, but I think it fits AZA...

A visitor from - posted Wed June 25, 2008:
0,0000001 seconds later and it would not have been the same... great timing!

How the f*** did you get in there???


By the way: it's one of the best shot I've seen..

A visitor from Germany posted Wed June 25, 2008:
Timing is everything here. Photographer must be former sharp shooter. But a camera making 20 shots per second could also have been helpful ;-)

A visitor from Australia posted Wed June 25, 2008:
This is good.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Wed June 25, 2008:
Perfect timing!!!!!!!!!!!!
