Paul. thanks for your comments and votes.. I use a canon 30D with a variety of lenses. That one was taken on a Canon L series 400mm f5.6 lens at 1/200th, F11 photographing prop planes and helicopters is a tricky business as you have to slow the shutter speed down to avoid freezing the props. even more so on helicopters. Slow shutters speeds, big lenses and fast moving objects dont go together very well..

This one would be my favorite. Wonderful feeling of action and movement. Nice colors and dof. Clear and crisp....Maggi

Beautiful shot! It has a somewhat soft feel to it, which is unusual for shooting a metal airplane, but it sure works here! This is really terrific. Nice job. And what were you riding/flying in?
