[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is Emirates Airways A380, the largest passenger jet in the world, being towed in heavy rain into her gate at Toronto’s Pearson International. The graceful curved wings of the A380 gives you the impression that the aircraft is ready to fly, almost like crouching on the ground, ready to jump and flyaway.

I was fortunate enough to get a chance to board the plane and have a close look around while she was being readied for the trip back to Dubai. It is an amazing machine, with an unbelievably luxurious first class section that includes an onboard shower.

une belle lumière , I thought it's forbidden to photograph in airports ? no ?

beautiful Big Bird, of course !



Very attractive shot. Absolute great picture with the beautiful colours and POV.
Best wishes,

Sunil (linus backwards),
I have tickets to fly on an A380 in 9 days!
I like this shot and know how difficult it is to get the whole plane in the frame. What does 12120/1000 mm mean? I think the pinkish sky really sets this one off. I think you have done well, considering the conditions and the glass you shot this through.

Bonjour Sunil,
Très bonne composition. J'aime beaucoup la sobriété et l'harmonie des couleurs.

Hi Sunil,
A little bit noisy photo, but this time its not a big problem, the grey-redish sky works well as background for the giant A380. Since I like aircrafts and aviation photos very much, it's a pleasure to see such posting. TFS!

Ciao Sunil

It is a beautiful copy of this beautiful A380.
I like the angle that you gave the shot
showing him in your total splendor.
I like the gradient in the top part
it is very attractive.
A balanced composition with good details!



Hi Sunil,
Beautiful caught of view of this wanderful A-380,
on a rainy day, good reflection and details of this big bird air transport.

Hi Linus,\
Checked you last postings, well this one I like particular due the mood it shows. In my opinion, the blur isn't really distractive, due the soft pink tones it creates a fine mood I think. Nevertheless I made a WS to show what happened when the noise is reduced and the saturation is a bit increased. Anyway still a fine picture of this big bird!
