Proof that brute force and a lot of math can accomplish big tasks.

nice shot, i like it! and you get all the plane in the frame. Also is great the effect of the air going out the turbines.

Nice. Seems like most larger plane shots that I see, are from a distance. This one is up close and personal -- very cool.

Somehow the perspective really hammers home the massiveness and weight of the plane. That and the relationship and dynamic with the tower give the photo a very strong sense of power......

Ok, so no one else has asked, I'll be the idiot that queries the "Wally" bit.

Wow! Thats a fantastic plane shot, the Vapour/heat haze is awesome! Plus the hint of background OOF make the plane really pop.

Here in the Netherlands a lot of people refer to the A380 as the flying whale, or "Wally" .
