A second shot of the successful liftoff of the Expedition 18 crew onboard a Soyuz spacecraft at the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan.

This one is taken much closer and gives a much higher level of detail and drama. Once again, tweaked in CS3 and Tiffen DFX.

Beautiful work. Such raw power. Curious to know what the pad looks like after all that heat?

Whoa baby.....long and lean is this machine!!!
I love the way one can see the launching towers falling away.
Your position as 'clean-up' man suits you well Phil.
Another superb job of tweaking an image for us to enjoy as well as continuing the education of my grandchildren :=)
To the space favorites folder this goes.
Many thanks for all the work you do to bring these neat, clean NASA images to me!
