Default Sunset contrail photos

The other evening I took these photos of aircraft contrails with my FZ35. There were a lot of them. I haven't seen so many at once before (there were a few more than what I got in photos). There were still more aircraft flying over, too.

I took the first photo with the camera's HDR art setting just to see what it would look like. The other photos, if I remember right, were taken with the camera's sunset scene mode. Hope you like them.

JayC, these are really cool images! I think I may try a 16:9 crop and remove about half of the ground in the first two shots.

Thanks, everyone! It really was a site to see. These shots were a "consolation prize", I guess, because my real goal was to take a picture of a Great Lakes ship sailing close by. By the time I got my camera it was gone.

I had the same thought. My computer monitor is a 16:9 ratio (1366x768). I keep forgetting to switch it in the camera. I never know when I might want to use a photo as wallpaper.

I took these alone. They are straight out of the camera. I really need to carry the camera with me more often. Then I could have got some good shots of the ship sailing by. These pictures were the first I had taken since July 4 (I posted the shots of the tractor show on the forum here).

You can always just crop it in pp.
