+1...Amazing!!

Just one question, I haven't seen a full rainbow for several years and I really don't remember the fine details of how it looked so was just wondering, why is the section under the rainbow lighter than the rest of the scene...??

Because rainbows are magical gateways. That section under the rainbow is another dimension :D :p



J/K ... I wonder why is that too :confused:

A quick google bought up this as to why its lighter...

http://www.realcolorwheel.com/rainbow.htm

"Your head is always in between the sun and the center of a rainbow circle, the sun is at your back. A normal rainbow has a lighter area of sky under it. White is the reflected color under the rainbow. Dark, or no added reflected light is over the top of the rainbow, over the red. Yellow light is in the middle of a rainbow. A warm magenta is barely visible on top of the red on a strong rainbow, it's stronger at the cool bottom of the rainbow. Also, yellow will appear again under the magenta on a strong rainbow."

That's a lot of hooey! Everyone knows that sparkling pot of gold at the end of the rainbow brightens up the underside.

ditto, amazing pano. David, how you managed to compose several shots of the same scenery with fading in and fading out rainbow? I tried several times shooting rainbow and noticed very fast change in spectrum and brightness which makes it difficult to shoot a pano? Any secret?
