This was of course a matter of being in the right place at the right time. It's taken at Reykjavík Airport which only has domestic flights (no jets). I had wanted to take a photo of it landing, but since it landed on the other side of the runway I was only able to take a shot of it as it had stopped and was getting ready to turn off the runway. The effects are quite unintentional, but turned out pretty nice. I don't work at the airport but managed to squeeze my lense in between the fence surrounding the airport.

What a thrill it is to recieve such great encouraging comments and a ribbon to boost! Wooohoooo!!!!!

Quite a few comments mentioned that this shot might be used for an airline or travel brochure. I was actually able to use it on a recent project at work for Flyware.net a software company offering weight and balance solutions.

My photo gallery has some pictures taken on the same night.

Thanks for all your comments and votes!

Frábær mynd, reyndi sjálfur að taka mynd af Fokker fyrir þessa keppni en tókst aldrei nógu vél til.
Virkilega smart, til hamingju með Bronsið :D

I like it!

I don't like the size or the aspect ratio of this pic. I do however love the subject and the background. I'd have cropped the top of this off and made it a full size pic. Maybe even got rid of the white border too. This is a great capture and a nice pic to boot.

Nice shot! Work at the air port? Looks like your on the end of the runway.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/05/2003 05:14:20 AM
You just have to love those colors! The layering effect of the clouds, sky, plane and land is very effective.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Nice shot. How did you get in position for this? It looks like you're right on the runway. Great job!

Beautiful photo!! Love the sunset - the silhouette of the airplane - the whole photo. Great job!!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/02/2003 03:17:48 PM
This would have gotten a 9 or 10 from me if the photo was cropped a bit from the top, so you see only from the top of the ground to the Tarmac, it would have allowed for more detail on the plane and sunset/rise.. 7

Wow! the light, the clouds, the plane! Nice job! I like the lights on the plane - like little suns. asnd the sky fading up into the darkness, just enough ground at the bottom.

The flares on the plane lights are interesting, and the silhouette of it really stands out against a wonderful sky. It's certainly an image I would expect to see in a holiday brochure or adorning an airport lounge.

this is a gorgeous photo... The only thing that could make it stronger is if it was a bit larger :) = 10 - setzler

Nice view, nice sunset, nice crop, nice photo. I like it
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/30/2003 06:51:28 AM
Like the starburst effect, and the general composition, but a bit closer in might have helped, including cropping a bit off the top (which I feel is not really giving anything to the picture, and helps one focus more on the subject).
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/30/2003 02:10:02 AM
Okay, you took an absolutely gorgeous photo and ruined it with that border!!! I will sadly have to give this a 9. Great photo. Nice job.

I've gone through tons of pictures now and this is the first 10 I've given. The lighting is dead on, the effects are great, and the subject is interesting. Most of all, I love the colors and lighting effects. Great job!
