  Mini#38 Best of 2017
Entry 4 of 45
   
 
Man's achievements       ©2018 joshd
Sony ILCE-7RM2       4th place, 169 points
1/1250s, f5.6, ISO 100, 90mm, Manual, Spot, no flash
 
Post-Processing: cropping to taste ... minor Lightroom adjustments only including increasing exposure and white level and reducing black level. Added a touch of de-haze.       Extra Info: Timing is everything ... I looked up to see a deep blue sky, cut perfectly in half by long lasting con-trails from a 4 engine airliner, with the moon in the background. I love the simplicity and symmetry of this image and all that it evokes.

    Thanks for the kind comments and votes! I was actually out that day with my 90mm macro lens taking pictures of flowers and decided to look up! The sky was so perfectly blue and the con trails so long, with the moon slightly offset, I tried to focus on the trails and snapped a few quick shots. I didn't realize what I had until I was developing the photos later ...

Landscape orientation probably would have been better for computer display, but something about the gradient of blue going from light to dark and the plane shooting downward away from the moon is pleasing to me ...

    Congratulations on 4th. Right time, yes, but you must have good reflexes to be able to capture something like this.

    Beauty in its simplicity, rich color, and symmetry. Who would have thought jet exhaust could be beautiful?

    Wow talk about utterly unique. You can't say this is a cliche shot, NO WAY!!

I love how that plane is just about to exit the frame, normally I don't like an object to be so close to the frame, but this works perfectly well because it's on a downward spiral, this is my Top pick!

All the best!

    Good timing s you say but I would suggest a horizontal presentation might be more effective for a computer screen. The moon just off to one side makes the shot. Kudos.

    Very Klee, Kandinsky, Mondrian or Bolotowsky in nature. I love the abstractness. Perfectly captured. In my TT's.

    Nicely executed. Sort of shot that you could wait ages for everything to slot into place....perhaps you did or maybe you just got lucky! Anyway well done and in my TT

    I love this shot as it is "different". I love the strands of it and the moon so luckily placed. In my favs.

    Like the simplicity of the composition, though the plane flying straight down is rather disconcerting.

    Your own statement is perfect and matches my reaction: "I love the simplicity and symmetry of this image and all that it evokes". Great choice.

    Impressions: Great symmetry with moon balancing the jet liner and contrails dividing the frame in half. Simple in composition and color. High favorite.

    I so wish that I didn't have to scroll to see all of this. It's such a wonderful shot, I'd love to see it big on a wall.
