Moon and Plane with smoke trails

During spring I sat in my yard enjoying the weather and noticed the moon in the perfect spot to get a shot with my new 650 lens I bought. So it started with the moon and then I noticed the planes going by and tried to be patient enough to get the plane going by the moon at the right time. It happened but the plane was to small. I wanted it bigger. I decided to take plane pictures until one fit right with the orig shot and blended it in. Converted to black and white and am happy with the end result.
