The Monster emerges from the Dark! Dy Chief A380 Pilot: Capt Ishakbhai Ibrahim & F/O Sham Kumar Singh (whom I had the pleasure of chatting & viewing the photos with later) arrive as 'Singapore 423 Super' - The first commercial A380 flight to Mumbai. The a/c never stopped for the Water Canon Salute & kept-up a gentle taxi all the way till the L1 door reached the gate & the starboard wingtip was right above my head :-) My thanks to the great people at GVK who made this photo-op possible.

Vishal, you have once again demonstrated your mastery of light. Great job capturing the Haloween monster-like appearance. This shot stands out from all other 380 on A.net.

The shadow on the water wall really gave it another dimension!

Really interesting picture - what time of day did this happen? This is the first time I've ever seen a water cannon salute in the dark!

A proud moment for CSIA to be able to take on the whale. Hoping to see LH , BA , AF , EK birds soon.

What a Magnificent Photo!
I can imagine the difficulty involved in taking a photo in what looks like Near-Darkness except for the awkward illumination created by the lights on the side of the 380's fuselage & headlights.
You've made the adversity your ally & composed a Most Artful composition like most of your other tasteful images, giving the A380 a real Monster-esque aura while emerging from the Water Canon curtain.

Kudos to You for uploading & the Screeners for allowing this image which dosent conform to the usual norms of the site.
