  1. The grain works very well for the rainbow, clouds and ground: one wouldn’t know this was shot through a window. What a wonderful opportunity to have been offered and very well taken up on: the composition matches wing and rainbow perfectly.

    So when is the first plane of the title going to appear?

  2. Aircraft hit by supersonic gull. Superman loses ability to fly.
    Why do I accept this is a rainbow when it lacks the major characteristic of a rainbow?

  3. It’s really interesting where companies will place their homepage details. The wing gives this so much depth and then the rainbow gives it bredth.

  4. ‘It’s really interesting where companies will place their homepage details. ‘

    It wouldn’t surprise me if I learned that at least one marketing glossy for the 737-700 (the aircraft pictured) mentions that the ‘vertical winglets provide a convenient messaging platform.’ What, I haven’t been talking to a lot of sales people lately!

  5. Quite the visual joke in that respect but I’m crying out for colour (hard to do with B&W film, I know). Strong shape just isn’t quite enough for me here.

  6. May sound funny coming from me, but I think color would ruin the effect, making it look like an advertisement (I can see right where I’d place the copy). And take away the possibilities shown by Rex’s questions.

    As it is, I like the simplicity of the composition and sort of zen calmness that is only interrupted by the ad on the wing.

  7. Christina has said what I would have said.

    This works as is. Adding to it would spoil it.

  8. I wouldn’t have thought about it on my own, but Christina is right, I think. With color this would have brought to mind an ad.
