What's that in the background?

No, not the Space Shuttle! The little plume of flame farther back.

What is it?

Reflection off the water?

Hmmm... Looking even closer, along a line defined by the brighter plumes, I see another, more faint, image of the plume... Perhaps it's another image caused by the construction of the canopy of whatever aircraft the picture was taken from.

I started wondering about the fuzziness of the complex in the lower left. Think, think, think! Aha! It's fuzzy because of the temperature/pressure distortion in the exhaust of the F22. :^)
