Nice shots Steven. Sharp and good detail with good exposures. I would suggest when shooting the prop planes you use a slower shutter speed though - around 1/200. That will show some prop blur - a frozen prop in flight looks a bit strange. It's a bit more challenging on the panning technique but the results will look more natural.

I know, I know, but when I lengthened the exposure time enough to get full prop blur, then I got motion blur from the aircraft. The P-51 can fly pretty fast, and the prop has a high rotation speed, so the shots with the stopped prop actually look better than the one that has the prop blur but it has motion blur from the body.

Everyone claims that shooting an object moving as fast as a fighter jet is almost impossible with an Oly. Evidently the previous owner broke it in well.

Hey Steve

Some fab pics.. I was expecting a feathered eagle.. which got me really thinking damn .. is it possible with the E3 ?? !!!

the P51 is still such a beaut ... even more so when you can see it wing to wing to the F15...

The ast air show I did .. was 2 years ago with the E3.. I had to switch IS off.. as everything was just OOF .. just wish I had the TC 1.4 to use with teh 35100 .. it would have been perfect ..

Hi Harj: I used the 50-200mm the whole time. While I had the 70-300mm with me, I never put it on, as the 50-200 was doing such a good job of tracking the jets. Even though I was giving up reach, I didn't want to risk that the 70-300 might not lock focus and track as well as the 50-200 was doing. I used IS the whole time.

LOL. I don't think he broke it in at all. It was so clean and spotless, it looked brand new, like it just came out of the camera showroom.

Thanks Lordje; Practice and experience will really help you learn. Every type of photo has it's own required techniques that you will learn. It takes practice and skill to take a good flower shot, or close-ups, or landscapes, or animals, or shots of buildings, etc. Just keep on practicing and learning, and you will be making shots that you will want to share here on the forum. And always remember that artistic expression is often a matter of your personal preferences and likes.
