Sold to Air Canada's EnRoute magazine, and featured in the March 2010 issue: http://enroute.aircanada.com/en/articles/gondola-rides-around-the-world They found the black & white cropped version on Flickr (http://www.flickr.com/photos/cialowicz/3779633590/in/set-72157618132531299/), and asked if I had a color version. I sent them a few color options, including the above uncropped one. The city in the background works well for their article - but I still prefer the cropped version in black+white.
