Double Contrail


I wanted to make sure you could see the twin contrails left by a plane so I cropped the picture in Photoshop. Then I experimented with a duplicate layer.

The second picture is not realistic but I liked the contrast. The dark background was created when I used "Linear Burn" on the duplicate layer.

Contrails are formed of water vapor and are also called vapor trails. They are often pretty but may contribute to global warming.

You did a great job of capturing these contrails. I also like your linear burn version.
