Default Landing Bi-plane

Taken with my Canon EOS 10D with Sigma 70-200 EX HSM lens at f-8 /200mm 1/640 a second.

Great capture...

Very interesting that propeller was obviously moving
much faster than 1/640 of a second!

I am impressed that you were able to fill so much of
the frame with the aircraft!

Fab shot! Nice colors too, the blue against the green background
centers the viewers attention straight on the plane.

Compliments!

Just curious... What do you think about Sigma? And would you recommend a Sigma 50-500 EX? I do mostly wild animal photography.

That's a nice freeze, but I sure think that the pilot looks a bit like ... an action figure. Could this be an RC model? ;-))

Wow i posted this a while back. Oh yes this is an RC model plane guess i should have put that on there. I just assumed everyone new it was an RC plane and not a full sized plane. This plane is no longer as it was crashed when another flyer turned on his radio on the same channel when this was up and down it went real real quick.

i had a struggle to capture this one on time. i had to really work hard to get the focus correct, as you can see it is not quite right but nonetheless a good shot,

as you can see it is a 747, in British Airways colours,
this one was taken at heathrow and took me nearly 4 hours to get, i waited and waited for the right plane to come in,
i never used a tripod i held the camera against the fence,
i was really lucky to get this shot, they are a once in a lifetime occurence, at Heathrow


watch this space, i have spent many hundreds of hours at airports getting shots just like this one and i will post some more as soon as i get time
