Timing is everything here. Photographer must be former sharp shooter. But a camera making 20 shots per second could also have been helpful ;-)

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.

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-"

Great eye on this one, the angle of the towers and wings are almost in perfect sync.

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!

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.

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!

The towers are obviously the approach lighting

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 !

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
