    What do you guys think? Leave in the con trail or not? Or any other comments too.

    Take it out, then decide...

    The sun is a bit yellow, you might try and add orange it a bit. Like the foreground etc...

          Take the shot again without the contrails if that's your wish. But it all depends what you're going to do with the image. If to sit on a hard drive and looked at now and again, why bother? If to be printed had displayed I can see the point of photo manipulation.

          I think it would look different almost unique if you selectively made the contrail a complimentary colour, ie blue.

            If we assume that the subject is the sunset, then the contrail is a distraction and I would take it out I'd probably also crop the LHS from just outside the two trees.

              Take it out. It draws my eye too much.

                Quick and dirty, cropped it off and cropped the LHS a bit too. Better?

                  Steve, valid point. To be honest it was just a quick dash out to catch a sunset so I wasn't planning anything specific for the image. I just though the trail sort of complemented the lines in the fields so wondered about leaving it in, hence asking for thoughts.

                    Much prefer your cropped version It was an interesting thought about complementing the lines in the field. I don't think it worked here because the contrail is very prominent whereas the field lines are subdued.

                      Nice image, much improved by removing the contrail.

                          I was going to say take it out but the cropped version is good.

                            I was going to suggest cropping (rather than editing) it out - then I saw that you already thought of that. I think the cropped version is better.

                              Crop version better imo
