... From the balcony of clouds
Meaning lies in the mind ... different person may have different point of view to this image ... my vision is - a person from a balcony looking at the flowing colors of the horizon behind a hill ... somehow I feel this person as a small boy who is mesmerized by the beauty of the liquid colors in the sky ...

I have flipped the original image horizontally to make a futuristic facing ... pls tell me what do you feel ...

The flipping in the image does affect the scaling and the perception because the colours of the rainbow float on a much broader scale than traditionally known and like Ganesh I am also curious how such a great band of colours was possible.

Ganesh and Vijay .. This is a wonder of interaction between natural elements ... I myself was mesmerized by this magical sight ... I just enhanced the contrast and saturation in PS and cropped ... pls have a look at the unprocessed jpg (scaled down to reduce filesize) - http://www.geocities.com/subharghya/sky.jpg ... this much the sensor could capture but my eyes witnesses amazing dynamic range and some magically vivid colors ... the saturation increase helped me to reach close to the original beauty of the scene ... I am very happy that you liked this beautiful image ..

Das! I wanted to reserve my comments till I hear from you ! Just visited the orginal image - this one is just magical. I am ok with the increased saturation. Love this as is, but I would have retained those leaves too, which in my view will make it more unique and interesting. Thanks for sharing this wonderful image!

Beautiful melange of colours! And very good composition!

Das,
Very beautiful image and well captured in timely manner. Colour split usually happens more during monsoon very small watre droplets high above the clouds creates rainbow effect. I have seen something like this few times with bare eyes, but this phenomenon does not last long.

This is very well done. The effect is amazing. I too feel after seeing the original , maybe the leaves would have added to the pic. Just my thoughts.

Wow, this is superb. Yes, increasing the contrast on sky pictures brings out many hidden facets and colours either we or the camera cannot say at normal contrast. What intrigues me is the indigo; I've never seen that colour in the sky except in a rainbow. This is an amazing new perspective!
