wow, this is very cool Michael ... you caught a bit of history here!! I was watching some coverage of this on TV this morning. To see all the little windows on the 747, you get a real feel for how huge this duo is. Great capture!

Hi Michael,
Great that you were there and capture the latest history on the space program.You captured it well with good details and exposure. Few nit though. There is a dirt spot in right bottom and the white balance is way too warm. Try cooling it down so the clouds become more white.

Hi Michael

HI Michael...nice shot. Great moment in aviation history well captured.
