Pretty sky. Think I would have cropped out the airplane wing for this challenge.

i love it, i don't know about the wing though. Maybe you intentionally did that. But otherwise great shot :)

Your concept is a little cloudy :}, but I like it! :)

Very nice, if the plane wasn't there it would be perfect
12/14/2007 07:11:14 AM
wow, how did you capture all that color?

If you would crop the wing, I would like it more. Modern days I think we take airplanes for heaven? You never know ;)

Great way to even incorporate the plane's wing so it's not distracting... I like it a lot!

I love taking images from my window on a plane, and this year, I have been on a few, let me tell you! Fiji, Dubai, Kenya, USA, Italy, UK, all in seperate trips, not to mention many interstate flights...but enough about me...rgis one is a beauty. Love the colours, and I love the darkness below, really makes it punch. You had a great seat at the pointy end of the plane. Love it...8

The wing kind of hurts the heaven connection for me.
12/12/2007 10:04:14 PM

darn that plane wing! i feel like it's blocking out the best part of the picture.

If the tip of the wing had not been there ...

interesting cloud formations. wingtip is a distraction. nice color and contrast.
