This is an ultra-superior photo. (To truly appreciate the superb quality and scene depiction of this snap, I recommend viewing it at FULL size.) An astounding shot! Check out how wonderfully the wing is reflected. And IF there was ANY editing done, then it is so subtle that it is undetectable! Not a hint of halo around the aircraft (halo is the most common, and obvious, indicator that a pic has been overedited), the colors are 1000% "true" to reality, and the clarity is totally pure. The shadows indicate the photog would have had to deal with brightly lit and contrastingly dark lighting conditions, and no one could have shot this scene better than this. Peter, this is a calendar shot, a poster pic, and a 20 * photograph!

Poeh, poeh, what a nice comment on my picture! Thanks Gary. It also has to do with being on the right place at the best moment. Sun exactly on the nose etc. Info on picture: 5D-MrkII-f8-1/2000sec-310mm. The picture was a cut-out. Thats why I like full-frame, to keep good quality on the part you need even when it is a quarter of the picture.

It is beautiful and mighty B747. But you need to show the side wings and the tail part of the aeroplane to complement the good work of ultra-superior photo. I recommend viewing it at full size. Thanks

Thanks for your reaction. Advice you to look for the two other pictures of the VP-BCI.

Great shot, thank you very much sharing my mighty Gentle Giant. And also thanks to Gary Schenauer for his perfect comment, my English is not good enough to describe how wonderful this picture is.

This comment is Gary Schenauer and Peter Maassen. It seems to me that you both think highly of the Boeing 474.I also see that you both are Photography buffs. My two Sons are into photography , my oldest had a brief semi-pro career in it. Now back to my comment. We live in Dearborn, Michigan, we are near Detroit Metro Airport, more specific ,we are in the flight path of incoming planes. We would babysit our Grandson ,Now 11 years old , And would watch the planes come in over our home. The most AWE inspiring sight was ,and still is ,the 747 JUMBO JET . We nick named the 747 , BIG , when one flew over we yelled out BIG. Our saying when we saw one was ( Low and Slow and Watch It Go ), It amazes me how that behemoth stays up in the air ,which looks like it's going so slow.We would drive out to the airport, to get even closer the the action.
I,We ,just wanted to let you both know that your pics are Beautiful to look at.

A Warm Thank You, Thank You, Thank You , Gentlemen .

Beautiful picture! Are you sure it is a 400 model though? (small upper deck with few windows)
Actually, it is a 747-400 freighter.
