WOW..that is a great shot..did you use a telephoto lense? Oh I love to travel too..going on a cruise with my husband this spring, Looking forward to that. I hope your dream comes true and you can travel to many far off places.

Oh my gosh, that's such a cool picture!!! I'm envious that you HAVE blue skies!! I LOVE to travel... wish we had more time and a GAbillion dollars to do so!

I like the depth of the clouds; it makes the 'dream' seem limitless!

My thought is that the picture would have made more visual sense to me to have the plane on the right hand side of the page because it appears to be traveling left. I feel like it's out of place in the bottom left as it is traveling left. I have understood that photos lend the idea of movement by the placement of the subject within the frame, and if you want to indicate direction, you put the subject on the side opposite of the direction it is going. I hope that helps!

Thanks ladies! I really appreciate your comments. Thanks for the feedback zealygirl.

This photo is actually a composite. I took both photos today but placed the plane on this picture- I didn't like the clouds in the actual plane picture. I tried so many placements but I picked this one because I wanted it to feel like it was leaving.But you are correct in that you don't want a subject leaving the frame in that also draws your eye out of the frame.

Wow I love this shot!! I was going to ask if it was a composite, not because it looks like it but because it's such a great place for that plane to be!! Good job
