I heard a plane and saw that it was heading towards the moon. "This is my chance!", I thought and quickly took the pucture.. It could have been sharper but you can't win every time. =)

Comments and critiques highly appreciated.

Extrodinary catch Paavo. Well, hm...heard i guess hehe...and well executed. So much hurry and still you managed to get a great composition. Very well done.

Good timing in taking the photo and despite the stress to pull it off, it turned out great! Well done Paavo!

Beautiful photo.
You captured right moment.
Good composition inspite of hurry.
I like blue and white with only one different colored thing - tail of a plane.
Well done.

wow, fantastic catch ...
it's a lufthansa ?

Maravillosa sincronizacion, logras ua dificil composicion.
Muy bien hecho.
Saludos Luis Javier.

Really big moon :)
I like it!

Rushed or not you've managed to capture the moment well. Simple but it works. I would suggest cropping a little of the sky off the bottom to balance the photo a bit.

This is wonderful! Great scene. This is one for my favorits. It is sharp enough to recognize that it is Lufthansa. You made a great job.

Paavo, I have no idea how you do it, but you always manage to make these pics look sooo amazing! :) the composition in this one really makes the pic - it's a great destination for the plane eh? hehe! really clean colours and background, and although it's not sharp *enough*, it still works out fine here.

Well caught Paavo, quick reaction. 10 seconds later it would have been too late. Bravo!

That's a marvellous shot Paavo! It's really nice...We can now finally picture how flying to the moon will be like in the future! ;)

Btw, what was your shutter speed? Was it at 400mm? That must be pretty difficult to get a decent shot and you managed to get a wonderful shot at that! TFS! I'm adding it to my faves :)

I love this!! wow!! I think its awesome!
