K10D/Sigma 50-500/AIF's (airplanes)

To get some practice for BIF's this spring I decided to try airplanes.

Nice shots but I doubt if the feathered variety will be quite so straight forward to capture.

I am sure you are right. I figured airplanes sould be easy so it would give a chance to practice moving with a target.

The second one is my favorite, really nice. The first one isn't up to your usual standards, the white is blown out. There's actually a whole genre for shooting airplanes in flight, and it's actually harder to do than one might think for most people. However, I can't imagine someone who's used to hunting and capturing wildlife would have many problems with it.

Hi mtngal, I agree about #1. I was going to delete it then decided since it was my first try at a plane I would keep it. I am pretty happy with the rest of them for my first tries.

Thank you for looking and for commenting.

Nice job, very sharp, but the first one is pretty blown out in the whites.

Hi Tom, You are right about #1. I was going to delete it but decided since it was my very 1st attempt at a plane I would keep it. Thanks for commenting and for looking.
