Nice one but seems like the flaps aren't at 45 on this short final! Anyway themselves know better what's goin on!

To the last comment; On normal landings the 737 uses flaps 30. Flaps 40 (maximum) is meant for overweight (and so faster speed) landings. Nice shot!

Excellent picture - great detail. The person who commented that Flap 40 landings are for overweight landings in the 737 is a bit misled. For one, you wouldn't land the 737 overweight unless it was an emergency. Flap 40 is typically used for shorter runways as it reduces the landing distance ( the airspeed is typically 7kts slower than Flap 30, not faster ) or when brake cooling is an issue. Also approaches in low visibility as the lower pitch attitude gives the pilot a better visual perspective. Flap 40 is also a typical flap setting for autolands on the NG. Hope that's of use.
