I took this photo of Mount Rainier out the airplane window on my way back from a business trip in Seattle. I did some slight cropping, converted to greyscale, and added a thin border.

Thanks for the ribbon. I knew it was a great shot when I saw it and was glad I was able to get the shot.

What process to grayscale did you use?

I saw the thumbnail version of the pic and thought to myself, "I think that's Mt. Rainier!" I was pleased to see it was. I am from the Seattle area and have flown by that mountain many times, and I, too, have tried to capture it. You did a great job and it is a joy to see a home-town treat. Your window must have been pretty clean, too! ;) We have a saying up there when the weather is clear: "The Mountain's Out"

A ribbon on a photo taken out of an airplane window? Gives me hope! Great photo, and good luck on future challenges.

What a bird's eye view!
Excellent composition.
Congrats on the Red!

Wow! Congrats! I gave this one a 10 as it stood out immediately. I did not realize it was Mt. Rainier - I live north of Seattle and used to fly every week to California - never saw this good of a shot! And no airline window smudge! Nice job.

Congratulations on your red. This is an image that many wish could be in their port. Great aerial capture.

You're very fortunate to have a photo op like this! This is just beautiful.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I love photos like this where clouds look like a "sea" around a mountain peak. However it is a little too static for my taste with the peak being very central.
11/22/2004 09:29:09 AM
Lot of shining white snow is just gray in this one. The peak is a beauty however.
11/21/2004 08:42:22 PM
Out of the 600+ shots, this was my only 10. Just plain stunning... or should I say "plane" stunning, assuming this was shot from a plane? :) Anyway, congrats on an awesome shot!

This will do very well. Almost looks miniature, even you I know it's huge based on the position on the clouds. Would like to see a larger version. (6)

Awsome! Must be taken from an airplace, but still awesome!

Very dramatic, nicely composed.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Very cool shsot. I like the unique above the clouds perspective. Just enough shadows to show features of the peak.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/18/2004 08:03:28 AM
I love images of things rising above the clouds. And as a pilot I get to see them frequently. You've done an excellent job of capturing this. Very adamsesque. My best score so far!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/17/2004 09:11:13 PM
Simply Awesome!!! I gave it a 10.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/17/2004 05:00:30 PM
I really hopr this wins that is a hell of a shot... if I could give 11, guess I will settle with a 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/17/2004 02:03:43 PM
