A lovely shot of the plane with the propellers showing just the right amount of blur so we can see the thing is moving. It looks just a little cramped in the frame though. A bit more space may give it room to breathe even though the sky is not that interesting.

Much prefer V2; putting your subject on an angle (around 30 degrees) often makes it look more dynamic and is used in car adverts quite a lot (the technique is called the dutch tilt) and can often make a mundane subject (like a new car) look more interesting and appealing (therefore people buy it!)

Always leave more room in front of the subject than behind it so that it has room to "move into", (ie 1 inch behind, 2 inches in front on a 10" x 8" image). This also give the subject room to "breathe".

I hope this helps you in some way.

Andrew.
