A WW1 SE5a landing at an air show in October. The evening sunshine gave me the idea to try and represent a fighter aircraft returning to base after a busy day. Would have been better with e few holes in it, but the owner didn't seem too keen on the idea!

Wonderful capture of a beautiful plane. I've shot a few holes in it for you and posted it as a mod.

Its a real pity about that sky, - but you cant control everything. Its a nice shot. The folks who shoot planes a lot (not like Lynne!) would usually go for a slower shutter speed, to get more prop blur, and pan with the plane. You would need a smaller aperture to slow the speed.

I would suggest just a little more contrast, - and to eliminate the white sky, you could crop to a pano format, as in the mod.

It is a nice shot but what a pity about the sky!

The main thing to address here is the shutter speed and I am a little unsure, but I don't think you have sufficient freedom of camera settings to allow a smaller aperture to go with a slower speed.

The slower shutter speed I feel essential to give some rotary blur to your propellor. The other thing of course is something that I go on about quite a lot, that is to allow a bit more space ahead of the palne for it to (in this case) land into.

Something to practice here.

Decent record but ideally needs some dramatic lighting and a bit bigger in the frame to give impact.

Thanks again for the comments and advice. Cropping out most of the sky has made a world of difference and Lynne Joyce's marksmanship is remarkable - makes you wonder how he got it homeSmile
Re. prop blur - the engine was barely above tick-over as he taxied in and there was some interesting detail around the hub area so I thought the blur towards the tips was enough?
