yes Jamie it was hand held although I did have a monopod attached to the camera which wasnt all that good where I was standing, the lens I used was a nikkor 70 to 300mm. I haven't chopped or cropped this photo. It filled the frame nicely.

Nice shot! No room for error at that level. Myself, would of liked to see a bit more of the smoke trail included and a bit more space on the right for the planes to fly into. IMO.

f5.6
1/640 sec
iso 320

Had to increase iso slightly due to aperture not being as big as I would like. Will need to look into getting lens with f2.6 but money causes a stop :-o

Would agree with you as it would give a better feel of movement. Have taken a few others (see my website) that include the trails.
Thanks for your comments too
