Touchdown in front of Lancing College

By teocali
Well out of my comfort zone here. A Sukhoy SU26 Matador (Red Bull Team) just touching down at the Shoreham Air Show last Sunday. This shot caught my eye because of the background showing Lancing College.
Settings: F/8 1/800sec ev -1 ISO125 shutter priority handheld 70-200@200mm

Many thanks for your C&Cs on my Typhoon upload - very much appreciated as alwaysSmile

Memories for me, Sylvia! Can't understand why we haven't seen more uploads on ePZ of this stunning College. A super capture. Carol

Love the point of view here Sylvia and the college just set it apart from other aircraft shots - beautifully seen, well timed and amazing composition - Ina

For me the image of Lancing College is one picture and the plane is another - but hey, that's just me Smile

sort of agree with Captain Tweaky on this shot but its all a matter of choice - the college is a magnificent building and the plane a brightly lit object which draws me away slightly from the college but having said that its a good picture nice and clean and sharp
Excellent composition with superb detail and lovely colour.

This shot pulls me both ways Sylvia, Excellent of the magnificent college as well as the aircraft which is so colourful. Nicely detailed throughout.

Nice contrast. Can't imagine the kids getting much work done with the Red Bull guys flying around. (Yeah, yeah, I know it's the school holidays.)

It's unfortunate that the plane looks rather static but I don't think there's anything you can do about that, since a longer exposure to blur the prop would blur the college if you panned and blur the whole plane if you didn't.
