Been to the airport today, and whilst there, I decided to try some panning shots. This one worked out best. What's very nice, but probably more to the aircraft spotters, is that this aircraft is just 2 weeks out of the factory. Very new indeed, very lucky to catch it. Another fun factor is the bright light on the wingtip; It's a strobe light, and pretty rare to catch 8)

Cheers! GB

I forgot :?

iso 80, 33mm (= 5.5x= 35mm equiv: 198mm) f/8.0 (A-priority) +0.3 exposure compensation. IS mode 1 used. It was very difficult to get some good shots, and this was in fact the only one that's worth to keep, but still not as sharp as they can/should be.. Nice project for a lot of practice

Cheers! GB

Almost perfect but you chopped the tail.Don't tell me how hard it is to take a pan. I know and appreciate your work. Next time improve your odds by backing off a little on the zoom.

very nicely done... aircraft is in clear focus, and the background blur really gives you the feeling of speed...

Very nice indeed! I agree, it would be cool to see the tail... but those shots are so challenging!

Yes, it should indeed have either been the whole aircraft or just the front half; I was trying some zoom, to get even more of the effect, but it's fairly hard to guess where to set the zoom; once they're close, there's no time for adjusting anymore A few whole-subject-in-the-pic shots made it as well, but the background blur is much less in these.

Cheers! GB

Good shot. Love the aviation photos.I shota helicopter with the strobe on this winter but it was from below and the sky above was a puke gray so not such a great pic overall never posted it. How could you tell it was only two weeks out from the factory?

There are a few leading civil aircraft photo databases (http://www.airliners.net and http://www.jetphotos.net). I wanted to upload the picture at those, but there was no information found with that registratrion; so I changed my search, and stumbled over a picture of the same craft, at the factory with French registration (aircrafts are assembled in France). Picture date was Jan. 31 :arrow:

Unfortunately they didn't found the picture interesting enough; Guess it really needed that tail :G
