A great moment captured...a terrific illusion.

Are you asking if the plane has been photoshopped in well; does it look real?

Lets know.
I did not photoshop the plane in it was actually in the shot

OK... This isn't really Critique Gallery material, as I can't see that any of us will have suggestions on how to improve it. I have seen the reverse photograph, so to speak, once in the past. A few years back the a Google Earth view of Russell Square in London included the image of a passing airliner. Sadly, the view has been updated.

I have to say that this does look as if it's quite a crude Photoshop job! But looking closely, I can see that the contrails could move under the influence of wind, though I would expect the aeroplane itself to be a straightforward plan view. I can also see that if you've got this in a shot you absolutely have to post it!

Heres a link to Moon shots LINK

The moon shot is underexposed, its blurry, its soft. The tips in the link will help you. MOST important is to either use a remote control, or the self timer when shooting, on a tripod. Also important, do not autofocus, manually focus.

The plane is fake; the contrails would be straight. Around 99.99% of all plane in front of Moon shots taken in darkness are fake, so dont worry about it. Most successful shots of the type are done in some available light; thats so you can see the plane, and set up the shot.

Try the suggestions and upload a Moon shot when you apply the tips and you see a huge improvement yourself.

This is less sharp the the example you posted on April 9th, and you had some useful feedback on that image.

You were very lucky or planned really well to get that aircraft in shot, and given the magnification to get the moon the aircraft must almost have been invisible to the naked eye.
I can absolutely guarantee that the plane is not fake I will gladly send anyone the raw file straight from memory card it's still on there it was just pure chance it was there I was not trying to capture that shot I did not plan it
