    Nice double TF Billy. I agree with raf about the half man and also with Mepo. But I disagree with forkcandles. Nothing gets ATC (air traffic control) out to a plane; the most of any official any pilot sees is the man from the FAA and you really don't want him walking toward you as you taxi in!

As for wrosenthal, you may not get the connection but I'm sure you won't take offense if I note it sounded to me more like, "Zee plane, boss, zee plane."

    On theme, and a beautiful capture. In my T5.

    What an extraordinary sight. Definite top shot for me.

    The ATC men paddling out to meet passengers to explain no stairway available.
maybe shot lower to get the aircraft on top of the heads .

    I can feel my toes sinking in the sand! And a float plane as well! Great capture

    "It's the plane boss! The plane!" I like this for the excitement and interest, clearly evident in the viewers. The use of the full out zoom compresses the distances nicely and makes the plane appear much closer. Nicely done with high interest value, and in my TT.

    Good action shot Billy. Love the subject and the colours. Good use of focal length shorten the apparent distance. imo it is as more 'vacation' than 'tourism' so is not as high in my tt as I would like.

    Nice crop and selective cloning, with good colour impact though the colour on the aircraft does look a little forced - I would have toned it down a bit there.

Overall a high interest image and well up in my top ten.

    I wish I was there... I like the colorfulness of the picture very much!

    Great shot... Right place, right time!

    Ahh summer....still months away. Gives a good sense of the beach and the fact that people keep working to keep us safe.

I know it is hard and I know I don't manage it either (probably even in this challenge), but personally I always like when people don't get cut by the edge of the frame. It is picky I know, and only a minor issue, but it was the first thing that caught my eye.

This is almost two separate shots with no connection (1. plane, and 2 beach scene) The fact that there is interest in the plane from the bathers fixes that.
