The sky this evening had lots of contrails. Hand held 3 frame HDR in CS5.

Nice shot.

But I feel that the tree branches around distract from the main focus and do not add much.

Cool shot - I'm not bothered by the trees and branches, which - to my eyes - help frame the subject.

Thanks! There is always a lot of traffic here due to Hartsfield, but only occasionally do the conditions conspire to make contrails propagate like this at a range of altitudes. The conspiracy theorists love it.

I enjoyed that shot.

At first glance I saw the trees and they distracted my eyes. However, after just staring at the contrails, the trees seemed to enhance the photo and created a depth with the trees jumping out and the sky setting back. So it's either really cool or I'm really tired
