As the Atlantis launch heralds the imminent end of the Shuttle program and, for that matter, the American manned spaceflight program, NASA’s Kennedy Media Center crew have pulled off some absolutely astonishing launch shots to give the retiring orbiter a fitting send off.

Interesting "stalker POV" in this shot. I'm wondering if excluding the lower third of the frame might be effective, if only in an aesthetic sense. A very Caedesian image.

Oh this is an outstanding photo. I love how it's taken thru the shrubs and grasses, giving this photo a real sense of 'reality' of nature, and yet there is the totally awesome power of the rocketship! I like that very much. This is a very sentimental shot too. I really appreciate you posting this!! Verena
