it must be monitors then. I do see a halo on the underside from the nose to the wing and then again on the underside at the back of the plane. I didn't notice it until I looked for it.

Had a look at the photo in the office with a 42 inch monitor. There is something like a halo, but it looks like it is from over sharpening that is causing it

John: Thanks for this feedback. What kind of monitor are you using that it is visibile to you? FYI, the only post processing I did to this image was crop, resize to 1200 pixels and applied 65/0.3 USM.

ST: I will hook up my laptop this evening to my 42" LCD and see if anything in the way of halos show.

My monitor is a pretty crummy gateway CRT here at work - certainly not a 42" lcd.

my eyes might be playing tricks on me now, but looking at the photo on a brighter screen, i may have seen a possible halo...
I marked the outline of it in black.

actually when I check it out on the 46 inch monitor. The halo seems much closer to the body of the plane.

I saw the over-sharpening effect along the bottom at a glance. C'mon.

Thanks again all who are weighing in to solve this mystery. Check this out: I used the equalize filter option in PSE8 and came up with the following image where I suppose a halo is clearly visible around the bottom of the fuselage and a bit around the tail. However, I'm still not convinced that it can be seen under normal conditions.

As for the comments re. oversharpening, I did not think that applying a single pass of USM of 65% with a 0.3 threshold would result in overshapening

want to hear something, some of that my be pressure waves you capture. Think when I zoom in at work, really close to the edge of the plane, I saw something like a clear bubble line. It was just off from the surrounding color of the sky.
