Not the greatest shot but a suitable presentation I think as we are off to Italy tomorrow and I am so excited.
This shot was taken somewhere over the Indian Ocean as the sun was setting. As you can see the plane is wearing the livery of South African Airways

Congratualations, very intersting effect with this coloured reflections on the wing, lovely color also for the sky on the horizon, original and well taken.

Very inventive and eye-catching shot, Rosemary. Well seen and executed. I particularly like the bright colours of the SAA emblem contrasting with the soft pastel shades of the setting sun.

la bandiera del Sudafrica vola tra sfumature incantevoli, bellissima realizzazione.
Il riflesso aumenta in modo fantastico tutto l'effetto della foto.
Adesso non devi fare altro che volare fino a qui.

Very creative shot of this aeroplane wing and the super colours from the SAA, airline emblem. Looks fantastic against the sunset colours.
dekanski (3740) 2014-04-28 2:20
Very creative, the reddish sky fits ideally with the colors of the wings!!

I do like this. It is both colourful and beautifully elegant. It sums up your excitement superbly. Enjoy Italy.
Enjoy a good week - B.

This is a rather differet photo and a lot more interesting than most pictures taken through an airplane window. The soft colours of the setting sun provide a superb background and a great contrast to the sharp and bright SAA symbol and its reflection.
I hope you will have a great time in Italy.
mesutilgim (86574) 2014-04-28 4:22
Another topclass capture in your gallery.
The South African Flag on the edge of the wing with its reflections creates a perfect graphism.
TFS and best regards

J'aime beaucoup cette composition. D'abord au niveau des couleurs de la pointe de l'aile qui se marient parfaitement avec celles du ciel superbe au moment du décollage.

non ti manca di cerlo l'inventiva.
Lo stesso trasferimento in aereo è stata per te un'occasione per cogliere un soggetto insolito tra colori fantastici e nitidezza di ottimo livello.
Un bell'incontro di tinte calde e fredde che aiutano a fare una composizione interessante.
Ciao e buona settimana

I love this kind of shots,so I will certainly not agree with you,that this picture is not great.
The logo of South African airways looks beautiful against so lovely sky.
Have a safe and successful trip to Italy
ktanska (25098) 2014-04-28 11:10
This is a beautiful one, with emptyness of upper atmosphere. These incredible colours just aren't available on the ground such overwhelming way. Looking at the winglet colours I think this is somewhat oversaturated, but never mind.
Have a nice journey!

I think you are being harsh on yourself, I think this is a fantastic shot! The colors of the sky, it goes without saying are amazing, but the way the tip and the flag rise so perfectly into the scene, and at the perfectly composed point, while being reflected in the shiny wing is just genius! I see a few pics from planes, and I've even tried to take one or two myself, but this really is special. Rather than try to shoot the view, you have shot the much much more interesting subject sitting there before you. Vibrant, original and wonderful, thanks as always for sharing. I really really like this.
Have a wonderful time in Italy!
jjcordier (77388) 2014-04-28 22:31
Les teintes du ciel et l'incroyable reflet sur l'aile de l'avion donnent un impact certain à ta photo.
Bon voyage en Italie!

Not the best place in a plane to take pictures, but.....
your picture evocates well the journey in a plane to discover a new country, the pink hues of the sky responding to the blueish ones of the wing. Of course the colored South Africa flag on the winglet and its reflection on the wing are really eye catching.
Have a good trip and stay in Italy, don't forget to take your camera!
macjake (57780) 2014-04-29 10:40
so you're off to Italy today! that awesome.
what are your plans? where will you be visiting and do you have any TE meetings lined up?
like you say its not the greatest of photographs, but its not the photo itself its the MESSAGE that you're sending which we can all relate to :)
can't wait to see your photos! have a wonderful trip, keep safe and have fun!!!!!!
jcpix (13716) 2014-04-30 14:36
You may have left this scene behind and are fully engulfed in the wonders of Italy about now, but you've sure left a great reminder with this image. :) The colors of the sky are soothing and sure make for a delightful backdrop to this wing. A vivid fin section accompanied by its reflection is, in all of its simplicity, beautiful. Bright, colorful and artistic. Hope you're having a great time. Travel safe. All the best.

The palette of pastel tones is absolutely amazing here and created an eye-catching visual effect. Love it! Beautiful capture and very good execution. TFS!
annjackman (20277) 2014-05-02 22:53
Have a wonderful time in Italy. Perhaps my favourite place in Europe.
This is a great photo. The colours are magical and a beautifully caught reflection of the SA emblem. Cleverly taken.
Best wishes, Ann

Des couleurs attrayantes du ciel, le top avec le reflet très colorée sur l'aile
Bon séjour en Italie

Ciao cara Rosemarina
A very fitting farewell to us. beautiful pastel colours and amazing clarity despite the fact you were taking the shot no doubt through thick, unclean glass. I wish you a wonderful, safe and unforgettable time in Italy. Please give it - and our friends - my love.
Un abbraccio affettuouso
Didi (57666) 2014-05-09 4:22
Did you walk on the wings ? :)
Very interesting composition and nice subject

Italy is the country I have visited the most extensively, months at a time, from Padua to Erice and from Positano to Vernazza. If you are in Tuscany, it will be the poppy season, but at anytime, Italy is splendid and I know that you will come back with stunning shots.
Great advertising for South African Airways, they should offer you a bottle of champagne on your return flight. A surprisingly clear view from your window, unless you have opened it to take that photo... Full of colour, perfect for the rainbow nation.
Have a safe trip and enjoy every moments of dolce vita!
P.S.: Say ciao to Sylvio for me, if you see him doing his community service.
