An aviation enthusiasts dream Alistair. Beautifully sharp and so very well captured. My only point would be to allow a little more space to the right of the aeroplane in which to move into, it does look rather crammed...
I'll check my other images of this beast and try find one that has more space on the RHS.
I was aware of this issue before selecting an image to upload. The difficulty with this variant is that it's a huge airplane, one of the longest commercial aircraft in operation apparently, and allowing space on the right means making the plane look more "normal size" as it would occupy less space in the final image. Presented in this manner, I think it exaggerates the scale of the airplane and its massive length. Regardless, I will still look into finding a better variant that gives some space on the RHS.
I obviously agree with the suggestion as it applies to all moving subjects I believe. Thanks for the feedback!
Re the comments above - I'd like to suggest cropping the wing on the left a bit. I've tried it with a few of my shots and I find it works fine.
I would typically hesitate doing such cropping doolittle, but I'll look into it. I'm editing pics from this shoot as we speak, so will look into it shortly. Thanks for the comment and the vote, I appreciate.

Nice image but agree with Nathan
Good shot. The heavy black border contributes to that closed in impression, - I would advise not to use them. Spot metering has given, as it so often does, a slightly underexposed shot, and white balance is biased towards blue. Im know Malta is sunny!
A little in front doesnt hurt, and it makes it a perfect panorama proportion, twice as wide as high. But you need to crop tighter first to get rid of the building, then extend the canvas without the building.
Good panning, assuming its panned, as this was moving more than 160Km/h at this point. The sharpness drops off a little at the left, due to the angle youre camera is at, so a little sharpening, with less on the right than the left helps.
Pity the name Lufthansa will always be remembered as the airline that caused the worst crash in aviation history, in Tenerife. Lots of changes came as a result of that, mainly on in-cabin chain of command.
Thanks Willie, I will try modify the original and make sure I end up with a better product taking into account all the positive feedback received. Thanks!
Variant 2 uploaded:
Exposure arranged, incl. White Balance issues, I hope. Cloned out building on the RHS to retain just trees, and added that space in front. Originally, this was shot with space on the right, it was a conscious choice to crop tight with this one. Seems it wasn't a wise one. Will upload the original as a third variant as well.
Cropped to 2:1 ratio here, following Willie's suggestion.
Variant 3: SOOC shot, no adjustments, just converted to JPG, resized and sharpened for web.
V2 looks good, though WB of V3 is better
Thanks. Then it seems that the WB I had originally was fine then as V3 is as-shot. I think I was on Daylight WB setting.
