Just your average Delta flight! You should try this little trick out, though!

Plenty of cloud coverage helped accentuate the rounded effect by casting pockets of shadows all throughout. All I did was tilt the camera so as to give it a feeling of curvature (tilt your head left and look at the clouds - looks like a normal airplane sight!) I increased contrast a tad to get the top deep black and voila!
