This is a slow-shutter capture of an aircraft 'shooter' on the flight deck on the USS Enterprise. He's mission is to safely launch each aircraft off the deck. While lining up and preparing for launch, the pliot, regardless of rank, obeys every single from the shooter.
A beautiful shot with an educational capition.
I love how the shape of the light makes it look like he's holding a bow and arrow here, certainly goes with the name "Shooter"! Sounds like a powerful position to be in if every pilot has to do exactly as they're told as far as he's concerned.
