    See? Over the rainbow, skies are blue (OK, maybe violet). ;-) I've always been amazed when you can see the obvious change in brightness above and below the rainbow.

    Actually, I suddenly saw a small fraction of the large Rainbow infront of my windows at around 8:50pm after the storm. I screamed out to my wife and son to see it. They are stunned by the rainbow infront of us. I just got my GX1 and fitted it with 9-18mm lens, and rushed down from my home to see what it was really look like. It was still rainning outside, and I prayed for my 9mm lens is wide enough for the huge rainbow infront of me. I only had time to take a few photos for the sun was sinking very fast below horizon then the Rainbow disappeared,and the sky turned dark. The 9mm lens is just wide enough to hold it all.

    If you look closely there is a second rainbow!

    Wide angles work great for rainbows and storms for that matter.

    Now take a portrait of a tennis player you know and photochop them onto the court.:smile:
