The shot was taken whilst flying south from Narita to Melbourne. We'd slept through the crossing the equator and when I woke up and looked out there was this amazing display of colours with the wing completely masking the point where the sun was about to rise.
As ever your opinions are greatly appreciated.

it does look a bit blurry to me, but i think there is a definite motive to this picture, and i think it should be accepted on grounds that it is a night/dusk/dawn shot as well as in-flight view...wonderful shot i might add..i really like these views out the window at sunset/sunrise, but that's just me...i would submit it, worst that can happen is that you get it rejected!

What do you mean Jonathan?
"Worst that can happen is that you get it rejected"?
What if Johans henchmen come at night and pick Manzoori up for a
nightlong interrogation. You know the drill. Fingernails taken.
The old chinese water torture and the like.
Great shot, Manzoori, even if not the sharpest. It captures the mood
of a night flight.
p.s. Just kidding about Johan and his henchmen of course.
Had a couple of beers tonight.

It's beautiful! It has no chance. Honestly, you'll submit it with highest hopes, wait a few weeks, then get a form letter rejecting it. Nothing against them or anything, but they seem to not like night or dusk window shots. I've had hundreds like this rejected. But I'd give it a shot, you never know!
