[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
There is a small place near the end of the runway at Dorval airport where there is very often a number of people that gather to see the airplanes lift off or land. The point of view is just great and it is quite impressive to see those big birds from so close. The noise is also quite impressive.

Hi Real,
Dramatic shot of this landing Air France Boeing 747-400. I like the way you have rotated the image to give it a different accent. Job well done! TFS.

Hello Real,
Fabulous capture. POV, colors, details and overall composition are terrific. Really well done. A+ and TFS Julie

Wow! Superbe composition, Réal! La position de l'avion dans le cadre est parfaite. Le travail sur le ciel est très bien fait aussi. J'aimerais peut-être la photo un tantinet plus claire, malgré que comme elle est, ça donne un bel effet dramatique. Très belle exécution!

This is a perfect shot, Real. Well timed and very good exposure. Thanks for sharing!


Perfect composition Real, a classy shot, needs to be published in an aviation magazine, preferrably on the cover.

Salut Réal,
Wow j'aime ce ciel et ce point de vue sur l'avion. Le résultat est vraiment superbe avec les couleurs et la lumière du soleil qui va en dégradé vers la droite.

Belle image Réal, excellente clarté et effets de couleurs réussis. Mets des bouchons dans tes oreilles la prochaine fois...


Real, Lovely capture of this airplane. Liked the colors in sky, composition and it is sharp. :) Vandana


Lovely colours, and a great view.

Splendid colours, Réal, and a nice crisp shot. No motion blur at all, you panned along really well. Somehow I feel it would have been nicer to click a bit earlier, keeping the plane in the upper right corner to give it more space in the image.
Anyway, TFS!

very impressive shot Real,
It's very clever. I llike the angle too!
Nice touch.

best regards, Daniel

Wow! This is an awesome shot. The point of view I like a lot, and the colours of the sky so beautiful.

Hi Real,

Amazing colours, they really enhance the image and add a lot of visual impact. You're right this is a great POV, I can just imagine all the noise! The thick black frame is rather good... and the composition is really good, especially since it's a little unconventional. Ah but those colours... they just hit the spot, wonderful work.


Salut Real,
Félicitations pour cette photo.
Elle est magnifique...grace à la couleur du ciel et à ton point de prise de vue.
Vraiment superbe.
