    I can't see the rain.

    Nice shot Terry.

      Hi Terry
      I like this - beaut colours and a feeling of "being there". I love the colour in the clouds.
      I reckon if you could level up that cloud line it would really look terrific.
      I've got a nerve telling you this as I am really lazy with Photoshop, so I hope you don't mind.

        I don't mind the cloud line being diametric to the wing.

        Nice shot Terry.

          Nice colours and lovely light on the landscape! I'd like to see the horizon straighted, though. Hopefully you won't lose too much on the sides.

            Is this what you were thinking Cathrine? It unfortunately crops a fair bit to make it level but could still be a nice coverage of this nice photo.

            I missed a little at the top on this one, but it still retains a lovely scene. I still think the tilting one has appeal for a banking of the plane feel, so it is a nice one Terry.

              stunning image (even if this is an overdone subject?)

              Personally the level horizon makes a great picture fantastic for me.

              I could see this adorning teh walls in the airlines head office.

                I still prefer the original post. The sloping horizon is more dynamic, typical of when an aircraft banks and adds to the feeling of flight.

                  I like the edit very much. It gives the feel of the ground appearing from beneath a very pretty cloud bank.
                  Nice one Ross.

                    I'm glad you like it, but it seems both ways have an appeal for different viewers. You know, the Olympus Viewer tilt adjustment makes it so easy to play with it.

                    I want to know what Terry thinks of it. Afterall, he took the lovely shot.

                      Thanks for all of your comments - I am in two minds (well at least two).

                      I like my original because of the bank angle and this is what it does to your vision - but can also understand that a level horizon makes people feel more comfotable.

                        I much prefer the first with the tilted horizon, although normally I'm a stickler for straight ones!

                        It really adds movement and drama to the shot, which the straightened one seems to lose a bit.

                            I am going back to look at it because I intend to include it in a calendar which all my family will get for Christmas - will take on board your suggestions.

                              Good Luck with your calendar - what a lovely idea!
                              Your photo has caused a lot of discussion in our house - both versions are lovely, but I still think to get the feel of a true bank, the wing should be a little more tilted. Therefore it is still the edited version for me.

                              Whatever you decide, it will look lovely.
