This image is a beautiful work of art, but it it just does not look real to me. As a former pilot I know1) those white topped clouds are sunlight bright. There is no way the nose light cone would be visible in that environment.2) the bank angle is very "non-standard"-- way too steep for IFR conditions. Looks more like an out of control situation.
3) The camera plane would seem to be in a very bad position--there is a lot of mid-air collision potential in that setup.
Yes, a stunning picture, but the photoshop work is just too unbelievable for me.

Very, very, very clever, and real art. Museum worthy.
