Captured at the 2005 Redbull air race Longleat. This years was a wash out so no planes in the air.

The shot is reasonably well panned, the plane looks like it would be pretty sharp even at bigger sizes.

The colours are good but I find the blue haze a bit of a spoiler, almost looks like it has been taken through a grubby window, but there's nothing you could do about that.

Where I think you could improve it is with the positioning of the plane. To me the shot would really benefit from being a lot wider, with a little more space in front of the plane and a lot more of the trail behind it. That would allow a greater impression of speed.

This is a nice shot .. however i personally think the plane isnt sharp enough ... i appreciate the kit you are using tho and understand its not always that easy ... a touch faster on the shutter speed would have made all the difference ... the composition works well for me personally .... Dan
