Beautifully handled low-key shot and good use of vignetting.

Great shot, except for the vapour trails! But it could be improved by cloning them out!
Also I'd be tempted to crop off the lh side to get rid of the telegraph pole, & then clone out the wires (or alternatively clone out the pole and wires)
Still a nice image though!

A good shot as ''taken as seen'' Jools.
As mudge says,you can ''tidy'' it up.
Depends on what you want your image to ''say'' !!
An accurate take?
Or a ''prettier'' take?

Another lovely shot Jools - you are really getting there with this lens and that is great to see.

I actually like the vapour trails here as they add to interest in the sky and help to provide a lead for the sky and break up the blueness.

Yep, the sun moves quickly in the winter and you have done very nicely to capture what you have - a nicely exposed image, again, with good detail in the snow!

Well done.

Actually, I love vapour trails and always look for them in the sky when I am photographing. I reckon this is one of those personal preference things Smile

Didn't realise how many planes flew above our house until I saw the trails at weekend. Really like this one a lot.

Agree with most comments on the vapour trails, they add some extra life to the image and as Andy mentioned they break up the sky.

Fantstic image, keep up the good work.
