Love the colours and looks good as a thumbnail. The two people on the bottom right are a bit distracting though, and the horizon doesn't look quite level.

Thanks for the comments, this is my first time uploading a pic on this site. Gav ... I thought the exact same thing about those two guy's in the shot! I wanted to crop them out but when I tried it out I lost some of the planes shadow and also takes away the visual sensation of how low the plane really is! This is shot 2 of a 3 burst shot. The other 2 are out of frame a bit.
Thanks again for the tips Smile

i actually like the people in shot, it give the image a sense of scale and the view (me) abit more involvement.
-ves a bit too much sky.

Scale and shadow are extremely impressive here. Horizon doesn't bother me since it looks like a cove. Very impressive shot!

The horizon is not quite level, but forgivable I think as the shot obviously had to be taken quickly and most of us here are not professional photographers. I like the people though as they do give a sense of scal and add to the drama of the pic.

I think there would probably be two options here:

1.) Make a point of the people and fit all of their bodies in the frame (to add a sense of scale).
2.) Cut them out altogether.

I would also like to see it with a full body shot of the onlookers..
Besides that this is a beautiful photo.

Sorry, as a pilot, all I can see is a cow jumping over the moon!

It's actually quite a rush to be directly in the path of the plane Smile For some reason I just took videos of this and no stills boo!! I'll publish the videos soon and post a link.

superb shot, i feel that the people in the corner are definitely gd where they are, gives the shot a slight bit more action and sense of movement and again gives u a real idea of how low the plane is, if the horizon was level it wud be a 10.
