      Thanks for your comments.

      I was lucky that my window hadn't steamed up too badly in flight and that after flying mostly over clouds, we started to descend over a beautifully calm Tyrrhenian Sea.

      I should be honest and say that it didn't look quite like this straight out of the camera, being the typical washed-out-with-blue aircraft window scene. Auto-levels and a slight boost in contrast got me 95% of the way there, although sharpening may have over-emphasised the waves all round the island so they compete with the town buildings on the far side.
