In this photo, the background sky has a pattern that I worry ruins it. I wait as long as I could to take this pick while there was still good light, but shadows were coming fast. So I could not avoid the migratory bird formation that is snaking above the aircraft in the sky.
Does this ruin the photo for submission? They're probably what the rejection guide would consider "indistinguishable from dust spots", yet there are so many spots I think most people would know what's going on. Thoughts?
Oh, and I welcome any other critique or comments on the photo. Thanks as always!
