The Spitfire - The Best of the Few

By Jabof33
Taken at the Throckmorton airshow in 2013, this pic of the timeless Spitfire was during a low fast pass, hence the slightly frozen prop.

Low-level hand-held pan shots are always the hardest to pull off.

I think it displays the fabulous elliptical wing very well

Good spitfire image, Randal
However the reason for the "slightly frozen" propeller is because your S/S of 1/1250sec is way too fast
A S/S of between 1/320 & 1/125sec would have produced good prop blur & compensate for the slower S/S with
good panning technique

Thanks, Brian,

I know, but I was caught unawares and should have altered the ISO BEFORE I started the photo sequence. If I had dialled in 100 it would have been beneficial.
