The picture has great composition and perspective. Both aircraft are technological marvels, one from the USA, one from Europe, both safe, efficient, quiet and reliable. Both deserve admiration for being great technological achievements.

And yet, this picture makes me a bit sad. It illustrates perfectly how boring aviation has become, at least for me. If the photo were taken 25-30 years ago, there would probably be an SQ 747 and an SQ DC10 on it, two charismatic, impressive machines that looked completely different from each other, instead of these 'twin sisters' B77W and A359 looking amazingly similar. I can't blame anyone for saying that all modern aircraft, from CS100 to A320 to B787, look the same, only in S,M,L and XL sizes. With the tri-jets long gone, the A380 and 748 remaining a marginal phenomenon and the 744 disappearing from the skies faster and faster, what we see here is what aviation will look like for decades to come. I'm not sure I like it...
