Default Panning at the airport

I typically do not have much success with panning. But this past Saturday I ended up with this capture of a Comair CRJ100ER getting airborne from Rwy 18L at Cincinnati Northern Kentucky International Airport. It does not look like there are any passengers on board this flight!

Im guessing thats the 6 P.M. flight. Every second Saturday that flight is chartered by the Mile High Club. The plane isnt empty. All the passengers are in back getting undressed. That accounts for the tail dragging like it is and why there are no passengers looking out the windows. Only in America.

Shoturtle: The lens was my recently acquired Nikor AF-S 70mm-200mm f2.8 VR. I tortured myself on whether I should spend that kind of money on a lens, but I was never able to get this kind of image with any other lens. Truly a best-in-class (IMHO).

I sold a bunch of other photo gear to purchase this lens--the net outlay therefore was manageable. Never the less, it is the most I've spent on a piece of glass. On the other hand, each time I see the results from it, I smile

Very nice panning shot! I love the soft colors and blur of the background and the bright colors and sharpness of the plane.

Well that is the most important thing, it does give great results.
I can say that I have been tempted to get the canon ef 100-400mm couple of time, so I know what if feels like want a very pricey lens.

Thanks VV..missed you comment there initially. I need more practice at panning...my many previous attempts netted a whole bunch of duds!
