Beautiful!

Can't add too much to the praise here except to say that the photo is so arresting, even beyond its great clarity, through its precise display the immense complexity, the sort of mid-takeoff ballet, of the wheels retracting, the flaps being modulated, the pitch and angle of the nose, the thrust. 70 critical data points in the first 40 seconds. It's all there. Exceptional pic!

Gary Pace

Gorgeous pic! What location are you getting to to get this shot? I've spent many hours at the famous In-n-Out area (W 92nd and Sepulveda, 24R). To get this shot, obviously you're at the west end, and between the pair of runways (24/6 and 25/7)? Maybe you just have good equipment with an awesome zoom lens? I'm asking too many questions. :)
Absolutely wonderful photograph of an awesome plane. I'm not much of an Airbus fan, however I will say this is an incredible aircraft. Great job. I assume this will be in the running for photo of the year, fer sure.

Je rêve de posséder un équipement aussi parfait. Mais je doute de pouvoir prendre en photo un tel appareil à l'aéroport de Québec ( YQB )

@Garry, this was shot from the beach! Taken at 340mm on a Canon 6D.

@Jan J, very nice. Thanks! You certainly have 'the eye', and nice equipment to boot!

Curious. In your avatar pic, is that on the parking deck over at Ralph's? Great overall view of LAX from there.

This is one of the best shots I have seen to date. Keeping the trees in the foreground enhances the impression of the size of the jet and the proximity to the camera. Beautiful shot - framed well, color (time of day) is beautiful. Way to go Jan J!
