I know we all have those shots that everything just seemed to work out perfectly.

Please post one and tell why it is your favorite.

I'm In...

Nellis Air Force Base .. Aviation Nation 2007

I had been on my feet (litterally) for over 14 hours and I was dog tired.

I had a body and heavy lens hanging off both shoulders, a butt-bag full of other stuff slung around the front and just about every pocket of my Domke vest was full.

I was number 499,999 out of 500,000 in line to get on the bus back to my car and I was just spent. I happend to look behind me in the direction of the setting sun and saw an F4 Phantom II reflecting the sunset but being as beat as I was, I just didn'thave the energy to try to shoot it.

But, the photographer in me said "Hey, that's a helluva photo op. What are you doing? Take the shot...!!!"

So, I raised the 5D + 70-200 and captured this:

"Twighlights Last Gleaming"

And to think I almost passed on it.

I have a delema in which I have three and the reason they are my favorites is because they all represent my beautiful female family members.

1. My wife
2. My 3 nieces.

Sorry, I really tried to limit it to only one. I broke my own rules...

Well there you go then...

JMO, but the point is to give some backstory on why the image matters...

Nicely done!
