Thanks for all the post comments, you're correct, the title is the distraction from reality.

Hmm. I didn't vote on this challenge, but had I done so, I suspect your bell curve might have been more perfect with the addition of a 9.

So, what's the distraction? The wing? In my eyes, the wing provides a context and form that defines the composition. The texture overlay? The texture is effective in creating mood, but not sure it's distracting? The deep blacks at the bottom of the image obscure the landform below allowing conjecture... I'm not the only one who saw Rome below - likely due to the title. I'm with 21_F.gif pixelpig about the distraction. The title's the most distracting part. Lovely work!

WOW! I still love looking at this.

A good photograph is one that I can come back to--for more of what attracted my eye the first time, & for new visual pleasures every next time. This lovely comp creates mystery & suspense, & tactile visual detail all combined in perfect harmony. The recognizable airplane wing anchors the comp in reality, giving my eye a departure point it can return to again & again. The tones, shapes, lines--all combined together perfectly. Good work.

And it was taken with the iPhone 5S! Even better!

The distracting element for me in this comp is the title. It's a mystery.

I loved this! Gave you a 7. I like that the wingtip is the only distinct element.

Fire?, Flying over Rome? Trying to figure out the title. I like the wet plate effect on this picture

Nero - as in black I would think not as in the emperor - in any case, the image is very attractive
