Dedication to Craig:
- fan of cars and planes (sorry this one is not rusty!)
- fan of the ultra wide angle
With the low cost companies, you walk on the tarmac and the rear doors are open, a good opportunity to take unusual pictures of airplanes.
Leaving UK under a bright sunshine, creating a big color contrast with the plane orange hues.

I think it´s even better it´s not rusty:)
but seriously-the capture is great!I like the perspective and angle giving us 3D impression.

Good pov and good layout; of course perfect light management makes this capture a perfect one.
Nice dark and cloudy sky creates a perfect background.
TFS and best regards

A very fine photograph which I am sure Craig will appreciate, even if the 'plane isn't broken and covered in rust!
Wonderful bold splashes of colour and a fine composition in which the aeroplane stands out beautifully against the deep blue sky. Fine light and colours, perfect exposure and excellent details and sharpness.
P.S. Do the authorities not mind you taking pictures here? Be careful - don't try taking pictures in airports in Greece (and possibly some other countries too) or you're likely to end up in big trouble!

haha...thanks for the dedication photo!
but next time make it rusty! haha
I'm also a big fan of clouds, and look at how the clouds make a strong visual impact, gotta love the clouds.
good choice with the ulta wide angle lens using the long perspectives smartly.
these photos always make an impact.

The colours are good, there is a contrast for the eyes, but the image is not popping up, like the quality shots you have got in your gallery.
As compared to them this is a pretty ordinary shot, though how many people will ever be able to capture the whole length of a plane in a single shot, by using the full frame SLR.
Sorry to be tough dear, as your gallery contains gems, and after enjoying the quality wine how can I enjoy the lime water?

That orange really pops out, which is of course the reasoning for that. And wide angle gives funny look to that wing. I kind of like boarding and leaving plane through tarmac, as long as the weather is fine.

This is a well spotted photo opportunity Claude. A powerful composition certainly does convey the extra depth taken form low shooting angle and closeness to exaggerate the proportions of the subject seen as totally diff perspective. Superb wide lens effect with excellent sharp in focus and certainly succeeds in forcing the viewer to wonder around within limited frame and what more, the wing guide us inward - clever observation there!!! This photo sums up the superb tremendous impact achieved leaving so much to admire. Tx to your hawk eyes - love the jaw dropping colours. Delightful stuff, Congrats :))

A nice dedication to Craig & I am sure he won't mind if it isn't rusty or decrepit! Love the strong warm cold color contrast between the blue and red. Good sharpness & effective tight framing. A good upward pov on the easyjet. Tfs!

Hello Claude. Great composition, colors and strong light. The plane takes in front of the deep blue sky very well. The Red plays a decisive role here.

tu es bien present sur ce cliche - ton point de vue, l'effort pour la composition, le cadrage, l'idee. Et si on y ajoute le Nikon qui t'obeit a merveille, on a une photo thematique qui seduit.
Tres content de te revoir cher ami et j'exprime mes regrets pour mes longues abscences. La vie me demand partout.

Pour clore le chapitre,c'est bien vu d'avoir surdimensionné l'aile de ce volatile,ainsi la portance est améliorée et la bécane peut quasiment planer sans l'aide des moteurs.Le grand angle est l'outil de l'avenir pour la technologie de l'aéronautique.

As we say in Turkish, "kime niyet kime kısmet?" (to whom the intent, to whom the fortune?). You may have intended this for Craig, but others of us get the fortune of enjoying it. I love photos of all vehicles and this one is particularly good. What strikes me most (apart from the fact that it is of a plane) is the bright orange vs the cool blue sky. TFS!
