Thanks everyone for the fantastic votes and comments. I really had no expectations with this shot since it was taken with my phone and there were A LOT of really nice shots in this one.

This was taken after touchdown in Amsterdam from New York. There was a short stop over in Iceland but only for an hour.

Happy Holidays everyone! :)

Amazing image and as others have said, taken from a phone, it isn't the camera gear that takes good pictures its the photographer.

I'm not sure what airline company this is but they need to pay you some big dollars and use this image in their advertisements.

Very well done, both in execution and processing. Goes to show that it is not all about the camera and the best one is the one you have with you! Great job!

No ocean, waves, sunset, city lights?
You did this on purpose so we'd feel bad right? Well, you succeed... I feel hopeless now :/ I am handing my camera to salvation army!

Way to go Hawaii. So even when you're strapped in and can't choose a subject, you still come up blue. Pretty impressive ... and a well deserved ribbon. Congratulations.
