Hey all,
I'm uploading this one to this forum for 2 reasons:
1. I didn't find the right forum. Is it transportation? Is it Nature?
2. I really want to hear your opinion on this one, had to took it in the 2 minutes the rainbow was there.. thanks!

I think it's fabulous...

Not to often you can catch a rainbow and a Merkava (sp?) in the same frame!

If I were going to tweak anything, I'd probably clone out the table and fence posts just left of the tank as well as the small white building at extreme left.

Otherwise, I'd print that sucker big!

I guess you can't be too protective when it comes to a pot of gold.

Awesome capture.

How often do you have camera to hand and that happens!

I think it's really cool. I might take out that little white box under the rainbow end.

adding a little touched up version, without this white box (which is actually a large plastic card with different shpaes of lines, used for gunner`s training).

My only problem is that after all the changes made through lightroom, I had to make a lot of sharpening and noise reduction, which really hurt the image quality, even before a 100% crop..
Any tips on that?

What a great (different) shot!
I agree with the little white card gone but don't agree with taking out the table and posts.....they add to the realism and are not a distraction at all.
Your edit has destroyed the top of the rainbow. Might want to protect it from your edit with a gradient mask. In fact I think the sky is a bit over saturated in the edit.

Definitely need the top of the rainbow, it is very cool the way it stood out against the blue sky in your original.
