A pair of airport workers take a short break and watch take-off of Singapore Airlines Airbus A380 on the daily route to Singapore.
This shot was taken to the west of the airport on the opposite side from airport terminals. This viewing point, known as Heligrill, is reachable by foot from Rümlang railway station.

Hi Kari, Airports are for me such wonderful places, even seeing this photo make me excited, it means adventure. You found a nice viewpoint, so close to the aircraft. Fantastic timing, the plane is so sharp and in just right place above the workers.

From this angle and POV, it is a giant up in the air. It is still amazing what we (human) can do to makes things as heavy as this to fly in the air. Great photo with excellent clarity.

Je me suis promis d'aller une fois sous la piste de l'aéroport de Zurich.
Je vois que ca en vaut la peine.
Belle photo bien cadré de cette immense oiseau.
Mais comment fait-il pour voler ?? incroyable..
Merci pour le partage

Your use of a fast shutter speed worked perfectly with excellent sharpness. Great to see the plane almost filling the frame. The two airport workers must have found it rather noisy! Very well taken - TFS.

not the prettiest airplane in my opinion,but definitely impressive one(I saw few in Frankfurt and Hong Kong and see him taking-off is a spectacle).
I like your capture of the mighty A380.The image is sharp,clear and has nicely done foreground with these two workers making a audition for the plane.

sorry for the late reply, i'm a little tardy on the critiques lately.
thank goodness for telephoto lenses right!?
it looks almost as if the airplane has been photoshoped INTO the scene, like a sticker haha

The aircraft is well placed in the frame. The point of view is showing the details and colours of the Airbus A380 of Singapore Airlines on take-off. The good luminosity is enhancing the colours. Have a nice day.
