// full view, please! //

edit:
Just because everybody's asking me the same things about this picture I'll do a really few FAQ + answeres here:
1. Did you take this picture yourself? - yup.
2. How did you manage to capture this picture? - I took this picture whilst flying in a plane through a window.
3. You must have been flying quite high, huh? - Well, I don't think we flew far higher than normal.
4. Are you a pilot / astronaut / angel / alien etc.? - I don't think so :confused:

It looks so high up because of the cirrus clouds across the middle of the photo... they really do look like the atmospheric 'bubble' in many shuttle photos. I actually checked this out thinking it was a picture taken from space.

The color is fantastic, especially for being captured through a plane window. The sun decided to give you some love with those shadows, too-- kudos to you on a wonderful picture. :)

I must admit that I was in disbeleif at first too. It looks like you were on the borderline between sky and space, much higher than most planes fly. But maybe it just looks that way because of the dark sky...It must have been at sunrise/sunset when it was taken right ?

I just can`t trust you that you`ve took that picture from a commercial airlines machine :( Maybe it`s true but I can`t understand! You were flying in Stratosphere, It`s soo hig that the proportion of the oxygen is too small to fly without a masks...

BTW... Splendid view :p

no motion blur at all, I only do things you could do in the darkroom as well, i.e. levels, contrast, brightness and sharpness ;)
In this one it was just slight level editing!
