Thanks all! It was a challenge to time the exposure (35 sec) to be ready to end at the right time the airliner reached the spot where I wanted it. There were a few other departures but their rate of climb was either too shallow, too flat or too steep to get the right effect. Also of luck was the type of clouds and the ambient light from the city below. I’ve had a few people ask me if this was an HDR image and I’m proud to say that it was not. Bottom line, though, I’m glad you folks like it! :-)
Excellent atmospheric Image Jim. – Ted
