    I can't spell but frequently know that a word is misspelt (mispelled)?

    Yes the monthly cheque certainly is an inspiration to continue striving for the exhorbitant returns according to the marketing emails that bloat the inbox

    Amazing that you can spell 'exhorbitant' but misspell misspelled! (BTW... misspelled is one of the most often misspelled words!)

    May I use more than one sheet of paper, or is that cheating?

    I'm sure there is at least one piece of paper there so I don't think it's cheating.

    IIRC, there are eight - two of each colour in each half of the box - but it's a while since I made it, so I wouldn't swear to that.

    "Misspelt" is an accepted alternative (and that's how it's pronounced in British English).

    Misspelt was spelled correctly, but misspelled was not.

    Thanks. It's white, a normal sheet of A4 printer paper rolled up
    The sun was almost in front of me (a bit to the right), the color is a result of the sunlight penetrating from the entrance and through the paper.

    Very nice. How did you manage to capture it so neatly in flight?

    And a very nice touch is the real plane in the right top corner

    In that case, it's a lovely effect.

    I would like to say quick reactions @guido00 ; but I cheated a bit. It was still very hard anyway as the wind was blowing hard and I only took this one photo and feel lucky to get it. I was trying for the plane in the background but as I say the wind was a pain and I could not get the setup I wanted.

    Anyway I hung the paper aeroplane on cotton and then cloned the cotton out afterwards

    Your rolled up paper was a good idea as well - I have been scratching my head for something to submit to this thread.

    Tough decision... I love all the pictures, some of them are good and original ideas... my favourite is the cheque... although I would like it even more if the amount was a bit (much) higher and it was for me... so I'll go for the idea that I think deserve it best because all the pics are good so...
