Wow this shot is awesome! It was one of my few 10's for the challenge.

Composition - Great, good use of the rule of thirds... very nice, I love how the first third is pure blue, then you have a few clouds in the second third and then you have the action. Awesome job here!

Exposure - Amazing especially for shooting through a plane window! The whites of the snow are well exposed which can be tough sometimes... good job.

Color - wow that is one blue sky! Did you use a polarizing filter by any chance, or play with that in PS or is that how it really looked. Awesome color to this. I love all the different blues here.

Focus - wonderful... great job for focusing through the plane window.. really excellent work

Background - no complaints

Fit For challenge - hey you were in the midst of travelling, thats pretty obvious! Great fit.

Wowability - Really beautiful photo that catches your eye.

Final Comments - you did an awesome job with this photo! I think it should have placed higher, even your use of border turned out very nicely. I really have nothing to complain about hence the 10. Great job! and keep up the beautiful work! :-)

It's usually hard to get such good contrast! Nice job -- I look forward to seeing what settings you used...

Great shot. Could only have been taken from a plan, you're right. You can see for miles. Great capture. Jacko 8

That's a lovely scene--and the windows of the plane weren't even dirty!!! ;o)

Where is it 33,000 feet above?

Pretty good for a plane window - you're lucky, I always get the wing.

A nice picture and a motive hard to capture since the windows of the airplane often distort any attempt to take good pictures. It is a bit static though.

Now, how did you get such a clear window? I've been on several trips and never have I seen a window that I could photograph though! Great view. Challenge hit! 9 Swash

Spectacular! Well balanced and toned. Perhaps there should have been just a little less sky but either way worth a 10.

I love airline shots out the windows. Question - what is the brown on the right hand bottom? Is that land and snow capped mountains above it? That's magnificant. I didn't think you could see that clearly at that height. Top notch photo. PTL 9

Great shot, my only complaint is the noise in my sky, but the subject is so bold that it doesn't seem to distract.

Awesome view..wish I was there too.

very nicely done

IMHO the black frame is too wide for this (apart from it) nice shot. The black border doesn't match to the spirit of lightness, freedom and wideness in the shot. But that's just me...
