Panasonic DMC-LX100       1st place, 182 points
1/59s, f5.6, ISO 250, 24mm, Aperture Priority, Pattern, no flash

    Congrats. The fact that this is a BIG plane was well shown by your composition. Well done.

    If North America doesn't start dieting we may have to bring these back. I saw one of these take-off. I think everyone at the airport was watching it. Well composed. I like the small bunch of people lending interest. In my tt for sure.

    I prefer this to your 'Main' entry. The plane is bigger and it's front is shown along with smaller planes for a size comparison and more of that lovely hanger :-). GL.

    Wonderful perspective and clearly right on theme. High in my TT's. The people help give a sense of size.

    Unlike the other shot, here the small plane and people give perspective. #2

    Cool shot. I like that you were able to shoot from an elevated position. Feels very anthropomorphic as if the big plane is turning its head to look at the little plane. Very well done.

    An interesting view of an unfamiliar craft.(Thanks for the notes.) I like the comparison with the smaller craft and the people. I also like the background pattern. Top few.

    Really well photographed!! Great colors and light. I like all the lines and shapes too. I wonder how it would look looking into the large opening? Those people huddled under the nose I find funny for some reason! I almost got to fly in a C-17 (I work for NASA) but those were ugly gray. Very high in my TT.
