    The slower shutter makes for an interesting effect on the contrails.
    We passed this guy pretty quickly, so I didn't get a chance to try a
    variety of ISO speeds.

      Was this a side window shot, or out the front where you both would have been at about the same speed?

      One of the best enroute photos I've seen, love the sureal contrails. Outstanding!

      What a beauty! Definitely liking the lack of sharpness in this one. Do you happen to know what airline the other plane was?
