This is.... wow. The dynamic is amazing! I feel startled just looking at it (and no matter how many times I look back the impression doesn't fade at all). Beautiful composition & execution!

Wow! Really dynamic, suspenseful and somewhat scary. Colours and shadows help a lot for the atmosphere too. Feel inspired cause I do a story with airplanes too! At least I try, it's so hard to get everything right! >_>
