Yesterday, I received a critique from Avigur wondering if I was standing on the 747 wing...
That give me the idea to publish a picture with the whole background... and the wing!
Sitll have the problem to choose a correct town... So this time, I chosen USA because the main object is the 747 wing.

Hi Fred - Amazing to get a shot like this - find it hard to believe two plains would this close in the air - but you surely got this photo in the rigth time ;-)

Ok - it was posted 1. of April :-)) thanks for sharing.

Hi Fred, welcome on board ;-P /though I think I was a bit late than you..:-D/
Very interesting space composition, with stunning elements and earthy background colours! I like the patterns down there, and the way the small plane and the 747 wing are contrasting. Very good job!

Again looks fantastic! The big one next to the small one! Were´nt those guys afraid of flying next to the 747?

Well done

I wonder how much more often I'm going to see this small white plane :-D
Yet another interesting variation of inserting the small white plane from Belgium into a new surrounding. While this looks less realistic than your previous version, it's definitely fun again, Fred.

Okay - now I can say that I would be really worried about flying in such a small "mozzie", especially being so close to a 747! It is a great shot. I have some suggestions that I will do in a WS. See what you think.

What a angle, Fred.

Amazing shot.The details are great.

Well done.

Hey Fred, this is great shot. The lines of the land below are so clear and sharp, you really were lucky. I often thought we should have a group theme on TE with shots taken from planes. Maybe you should start one here on TL. This is a worthy opener.

An amazing shot, Fred. The patchwork quilt of fields makes an interesting background. I think the little white plane with an F14 below it would also be good. Very well done. Great work.

Remarquable montage, Fred. L'llusion est parfaite, même si dans la réalité cela serait impossible (du moins en temps normal). On a même l'illusion de la manoeuvre d'évitement des avions. Le fond est dans le ton également. Bref, c'est de l'excellent travail.

well it doesnt take a rocket scientist to figure out that its a F A K E.

Very cool picture Fred! Super timing too. Thanks! :O)

Salut Fred, je découvre tes photos sur TL. j'ai donc logiquement commencé par la 1ère, puis la deuxième (celle-ci) et j'ai éclaté de rire. ton petit ulm qui vit sa vie comme ça au dessus de San Francisco, que du bonheur.
Tu aurais pu faire une série genre "la petite coccinelle à Monaco, à San Francisco, etc"
j'ame bien ta compo avec cette immense aile du 747.
bien fait

This is an interesting shot. After examining for awhile, I've come to the conclusion that the little two seater airplane was cut and pasted into the larger picture. The first thing that caught my eye was the difference in brightness between the two airplanes. The 747 wing is so dark which matches the aerial view of the landscape below. However the little airplane is incredibly white, which doesn't match the rest of the photo. Also the little airplane is flying with it's wheels down, which is a little unusual considering how high up it is. The final and last detail that makes me think that the picture of the little plane was taken on the ground is that the wheels of the little plane of flat on the bottom.

Interesting cut and paste. I think if you darkened the little plane it would have blended better into the overall picture.
