Taken in San Diego Bay where most weekends there will be a good mix of all types of transportation methods. The airplane is landing on the North Island Naval Station on Coronado Island.

A good title and an eye catching image under a good light. The elements are well placed and the American Flag stands well between between sail and plane.

excellent the timing of the shot with the view of the landing airplane to be just on the right of the sailing boat.I like the ecellent light and the colour management as the beauty of the image.

a very intriguing scene, captured with great timing, instinct and luck:) There's superb sharpness on the gorgeous vessel, the airplane and the airfield in the background are well defined too. I like very much how you captured the airplane just a second before it was hidden by the sails and how the flag is flying open. The light is agreeably warm, the colours are excellent. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day,

Interesting comparison with the large military plane in flight above the regal schooner with impressive 3 jibs. San Diego Harbor always has plenty of action for boating enthusiasts.
Thanks for sharing,

Good capture, taken at the right moment, plane at the right and ship
Flag adds color and helps with contrast
Funnny and descriptive title

Indeed two completely different methods for travelling. The old ship is certainly the most beautiful of them but I guess the plane is much faster. But the flag provide a very good accent in the picture.

A nice harmonious relation between the sailing boat the US flag and the bg plane. Well composed with the horizon line well away from the centre. Good sharpness and natural looking colour. Have a nice week!

HI Eleu, Nice mixture of technology of now and then. The old fashion boat is using water to push ahead of its journey whereas the airplane is using air and space to reach its destination. Awesome colours along with great clarity. I like the vivid blue sea water and you have given perfect amount of space to balance the frame. Best regards

Generations separate these showing a nice contrast here; a new jetliner and a classic galleon and both are very capable machines. I like the idea behind what you have captured here and thought it looks very tasteful and elegant both are sharp in focus. Great tones, clarity and good colour saturation. Great summary of, well everything. Well done, Congrats
