Philippe - Nice shot.  I like the way the shadow and sunlit portions 
of the picture lead  your eye to the rainbow.  I tried tighter 
cropping on the crane to eliminate the cobblestone dock.  That made 
the rainbow more prominent, but that may not have been the effect you 
were looking for.

Rainbows are great subjects.  One of the greatest pictures I *never* 
took was of a perfect double rainbow (two complete semicircles, with 
the hint of a third) over the plains of Colorado as I was driving 
towards the mountains just as the sun was setting.  I spotted it in 
my rear-view mirror as I crested a hill but this was a business trip, 
I had two associates in my car who would have not tolerated a stop, 
and the Leica stayed in my briefcase.  C'est la vie.
