My first ever try at photographing moving objects
Taken at Waddington Airshow on Sunday.
Would look much better with a dramatic cloudy sky, but it was a lovely sunny day so it will have to do

Pretty good effort for a first attempt. A slower shutter speed would have blurred the props a bit more.
gets a click from me...
Thank you both very much for looking and of course your votes
This has been up about forty minutes now and only nine people have viewed it....Well I now know what not to upload LOL! █
Will delete in ten mins if no improvement
Aircraft shots aren't popular. If it's clicks you're after, you need dark moody landscapes. My shots get a reasonable number of views but not many people bother to leave comments.
Yeah but no ones even looking LOL!
I have a few shots to upload, but I don't think I'll bother now
I was there on Sunday, nice shot =o)
I took a few here too on sunday, so far a quick look has shown my poor panning technique!! Nice and sharp, well captured.
Hi Rob, thought you'd left the country! This doesn't have the appeal of your usual photos as the ones you set up and create show of your skill to its full advantage, this is a good shot in its own right but I personally prefer your original shots, hope you are well Jane
Great capture - the one on the left looks a rareity...?
What a classic image well caught
I think they look great against the blue sky!
Thank you all for the votes
Martin, yes good panning is the key to getting the shots clear, except for the Red Arrows because it's mainly formation and smoke trails. I had a few soft shots due to a plane suddenly appearing and the slow start-up of my Nikon 8700.
Quote: Hi Rob, thought you'd left the country!
No it's not very appealing I know Jane, and I promise I wont upload anymore aircraft shots
Caleb, I don't have a clue if the one on the left is a rarity or not? I suppose they are all quite rare really.
Glorious machines, and the sound must have been fantastic.
It's been said before about the slower shutter speed for more movement in the propellers, but it's a start. It's good to try something new.
Anyhow, good work, look forward to some more.
Should have been sat in my garden..watched it all for free !!
The capture is good,detail excellent,I'm not an aeroplane fan but your photography skills show in this clear capture.
The one on the left is a 2-seater - yup, it's pretty rare.
Oh I see! Learnt something new, thanks!
Thanks Gary and Janet.
Thats not fair Janet, it cost me about £30 and the coach took about the same time it takes to get to Spain, so we ended up missing some stuff at the start. Saw about four displays while we were sat on the coach stuck in traffic LOL!
OOps,should have given me a call,maybe next year !!
Don't get dispondent aircraft shots don't attract much attention on here For a first effort this is good
Yeah I know, but I think I'll just upload the rest to my website from now on. Back to non moving objects
well, I like it..because it's not every day that one sees antique aircraft. I also like the whir of the propellers that you captured. Now not everyone is going to click on this..but that does not discount it as a good image. it is a good image and I actually commend you for going outside of your normal shots..I did the same recently and I must say..it didn't get the usual response ..but I did it mostly to prove to myself that I was capable of doing something different and doing it well.
Thanks Tina, yes it's good to have a change, I would like to think I can handle most photographic situations. The Nikon 8700 is a very slow camera with a pretty average zoom compared to the canon dslr's etc, so I'm quite pleased with the results I managed to get.
Very important to get at least some movement in the propellers too. I wish I could have uploaded the sound with it
Must have been quite an experience seeing this, Rob.
Classic image, wonderful shot. My in-laws went to this show - said it was a great day, looks like you had a great day too! Lyns x
well exposed for the detail- nice composition.
Curious to know now what the second pilot did in the one on the left, bomber - machine gunner or was it a co pilot position for training purposes...?
I'll have to message Steve :O)
Thanks Jim, Lyns, Alan
Caleb, I saw somewhere on google that the two seaters were used for training purposes.
good action shot rob
Bob thanks for going to all that trouble to do the mod, looks great! A click would have been nice while you were here too
Really getting p$%@ed off with seeing the amount of views going up but not the votes! Arrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrggggghh!!!!!
Is it really that crap?!
Nice flight photography.
Great formation and over all composition.
Well it sure does seem like you have been doing for awhile, the detail on all three is perfectly in focus, nice work! Spot on! Click!!!
Thank you Dawn and Greg
Don't always work these do they ? This does
Beautiful capture of the three old planes Rob...the exposure has detailed well the colours and markings and the blue sky has good contrasting properties accentuating the quality in the sharpness of your image.
Thanks Dave and Doug
Beautiful and sharp action shot.
Colours are good too.
There is nothing wrong with it. It is very sharp and clear. But as was mentioned, it is not a sunset landscape or a bird, so it is not as popular. But that doesn't mean that it is not as good! I'd be happy with this if I took it.
Thank you both very much, I really appreciate you taking the time
A brilliant image - I love the air shows, especially when these guys come in. Super work - love the colours - clarity spot on,
As we all known clicks are the only measure of a photos value
Don't stress it Rob, as soon as you move out of the style people expect from you then clicks go down. If you really want to minimise clicks then B&W motorspot photography is the way to go.
This looks pretty good to me, only improvment I would like to see is better seperation of the right hand two...but as you were taking the pics not flying I don't see how you could fix that.
Thank you Barb and Chris
Thanks Chris, I have a few decent shots I was going to upload, but I think I'll get back to my still-life stuff instead
I like the blue sky as a background personally, think its sets off the planes really well - well done for getting them all in shot and in focus, not easy I'm sure. Sue
Thank you very much for popping over Sue
I wanted to do my portrait in a drop of water and then I see you've already done it LOL! May try it anyway, now that I see how well it can be done.
LOL! I don't think I've ever seen you do anything other than landscapes before Patrick!
This one or this one?
Okay I will be expecting to see it the next time you upload
Beautiful shot, Rob.....You've captured these perfectly.....Cannot imagine where you were at to get this??
Looks as tho you were in the plane beside them...
Wherever you were......Brilliant!
Cheers and have a nice night,
Thanks Suzan, I Didn't realise you had commented because I didn't get a notification for some reason.
I was stood near the runway, it's just the angle they flew bye at that makes it look like I must have been been flying at the side of them
Its not a bad effort, but a slower shutter speed would have helped; also the large image shows some chromatic abberations! For those that don't know, the 2 seater is probably a Mk9 that was converted after the war by the Vickers company. I think that most of them were for the Irish AF. The first to be put back into the air was ML407 - by the late Nick Grace - and still flown by his widow. The centre one is an early Mk, probably a MkII or V; the last one is a Griffon engined late variant.
Thanks for the info Andy. This was a first photographing planes for me too. The camera isn't really cut out for it with only an 8x built in zoom.
