    I just happened to take my flu bugs away from the general population today. I have been stuck in the house for ten days now.

    I went out for a drive in the fresh air and stopped for some photo's along the way. As it happened, I arrived at the Dam out at Corin at the perfect time. The rainbow was only there for about 3 minutes and then disappeared.

    I used Canon Photostitch to join all the panned pictures (4) together and make one wide angle landscape.

    There were a few join lines as a result, so I used the blur tool in PSE6 to fix.

    I had a couple of goes at it and tried a variation on framing.

    I couldn't think of anything else to call it. The reflection makes it look like a bubble or window to another dimension, perhaps a glimpse into the future of some distant domed city or shield....the imagination can run wild with scenes like this.

    Thanks heaps guys! As an astrophotographer of 3 years, this daytime photography is not something I am used to. It's harder than it seems.

    I'd go w/o a border AND title, just makes it kind of silly. The picture is nice, let it speak for itself.

    this.

    also it could use a little more PP work. Nothing major, just subtle things like contrast and color. Otherwise, pretty :cool:
