I was having some concerns with one of my lenses not focusing sharply at long range, so I looked up into the sky and saw a jet flying overhead. I composed and fired the camera a couple of times and the image was acceptably sharp. The color looked a bit flat, so in Photoshop I hit "Auto-levels" just to snap the color and contrast a bit and see what it looked like. I expected a mild shift in color. Instead the auto setting took the image to extremes of contrast and I found myself liking the resulting image. Yes, it is an exaggeration, and there is no news value to it. Just an image that made think :Huh, that's kind of cool."
