I don't know who made this image or how. I just know that it's now making the rounds and I wanted to share it with you because it's simply a magnificent shot. It's even more impressive in HD:

The plane appears to be leaving Shanghai, which is weird, because that doesn't look like the usual trajectory and angle for a normal commercial airplane on that route. How was it taken? Either the pilot has a very long arm or the plane had a rig with the camera attached to the front. Perhaps is a publicity shot for some airline. Or maybe it's all a great Photoshop job.
