Juxtaposition and telephoto compression to create this very nice photograph. Kind of cool what the vapor trails do to the appearance of the moon. Great job!

Beautiful shot, quite crisp for the use of such a long lens. I'm not wild about the orange moon, but it's still a standout in this challenge!

wow great shot, the vapour trails distorting the moon is amazing.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/04/2006 12:27:22 PM
Nice, I love the way the light on the end of the wing sort of looks like another smaller moon circling the moon.

Quite the shot.

Every so often, when voting in challenges, I come across a picture that makes me think, "Dang, I wish that was mine." This is one of them. I would give it an eleven, if I could.

Kick ass shot. If you get perfect sharpness and center the plane you can win some real awards. I wish I knew where this was. I'd sit there every full moon.

11/01/2006 10:39:06 PM
Wonderful catch and I love the fuel leak or whatever that is coming off the wing. Anyway, my favorite so far, because It's a one-of-a-kind, never to be re-created shot...10!

what is the plane dumping fuel or water, pretty slick shot..
