great composition and framing, amazing sharpness and a strong 3D impression are the outstanding qualities of this picture. The plane stands out superbly against a delightful bright backdrop. The rendering of textures is remarkable too and the clear view of the crew is captivating. Congratulations and thank you!

Eleu, another incredibly clear shot of a rapidly moving plane; nicely done! I love the way the plane is angled towards us so we can clearly see the pilot and copilot in the cockpit. Beautiful sky. Thanks.
