How/Where did you take this ? I was at Heathrow trying to get a picture like this but couldnt get close enough!! Nice one


Congratulations on IOTW and EC awards SmileSmile


Love this photograph. All your details seem to contribute to the atmosphere: Taking the two persons against the light sets at once the scale and magnifies it. The pictogramme in the forefront appears as a warning to the less than human scale. The background details take the viewer back to some kind of normality. Love also the touch of blue, it seems to guide the eye to the central aspects of this compositon. Well done, bravo.

To David Zachary,
I was down on the tarmac amongst the big beasts.... no other way to get a shot like this. I was lucky and working for the airline so had all the security passes necessary. No easy feat I can assure you!


Congratulations David for having this picture selected to indicate the 10 best transport shots in the website Smile
It's a great image as concept, format and exposure.
