I was invitied on a little scenic flight over the south part of Iceland. Of course I said yes. Filled my cards with raw files and had to change over to jpg's towards the end. This one was a jpg and quality was not 100% but I hope itīs good enough :-)
Messed around with it in Lightroom and exported to 640.

Hmmm, surprises me that I haven't seen a shot from this angle before. That being said, this is beautifully done, and a spectacular shot. Congrats!

I like the processing here. Cool perspective.

i thinkthis has been done before.

Wow! This is epic. Ribbon Worth too

this is a lovely image, but I know I've seen it done before. Great light though. The shadow on the LL looks like Africa :p

Wow - that's pretty.

The ground shadowing and the rays are beautiful.

Beautiful - I love the light and the perspective. Well done!

ooh, this is nice, the green is very lush and I like the cloud shadow along with the rays of light. Maybe a tad too much neatimage on the wing and sky?

Perfect shot!

Lovely light! (not voting)

Unique perspective that we don't get to see, I also love the colors, and the depth.

it is really neat to see the patterns of the rays...excellent processing too

This is a beautiful image. I really like the composition and the point of view. It reminds me of my honeymoon when my wife and I went on a helicopter tour in Hawaii! The greens are beautiful as well. I just wish it was bigger. :(

It is certainly shining through. What a gorgeous capture of the lighting and the beautiful scenery. I really like that you included the wing in the shot. It certainly adds the winning element. 9

Beautiful light! The first shadow reminds me Africa! Maybe it would be nice to crop on the right, right after the wing end.
06/26/2009 12:26:30 PM
Ooh... man... I really wish the wing wasn't visible in this shot...

Hi, I'm not voting but would really like to hear from you about how you took this pic if you have a minute? Thanks :)

This has all the elements of a great High-Contrast Photo,...almost, as well as almost Hyper-Focal Distance, and eschatological encouragement on so many levels! Honestly, the "almost" is not a negative, but a real Plus that makes this photo similar IMHO to the Great Brush Artists of the early twentieth-century who consistently thought "outside of the box."
