Very nice sunrise (I'm guessing sunrise because your plane is facing east) pic. Yes, with post-processing -- which I learned how to do here at steves-digicams, before I just snapped them -- sunrise/sunset pictures taken from planes can be very dramatic.

-> I was stretching my legs in the back of the cabin when I saw the rising sun through the rear exit window (all the shades in the cabin were closed since it was a night flight, and the passengers were watching movies). I went back to my seat to pull out a super wide then return to this rear exit window to fire off several frames though this opening...

Thanks everyone for commenting
