It may be the processing, but this looks fake. I will score it as I see it.. very very well done if genuine. Sad we wont see these flying anymore - end of an era. 8

We have a few judges in our photo club that repeat the mantra "back of a bird" when ever a bird in flight photo with compostion similar to this is shown. The back view is just not as interesting and has less impact to the viewer than the equivalent shot with the subject facing you.

That said you caught a unique moment in space flight history and that is pretty cool.
