Thanks Alex, hadn't realised how difficult it is to get someone 'on approach' like this in focus - not the greatestshots but the best I was able to get. Definitely need to pre-focus on a spot and let the subject enter the target area - flawed process against a blue sky though:G

I like the first shot you have Steve, done a bit of that myself. I think you could try a couple of different things, you should be able to get a reasonable shutter speed even at F8. I would try F8, 1/400, ISO200. That should give you pretty good exposure on the kind of sunny day that they would be jumping on. For focus, I would either try continuous focus or try a hyperfocal distance. Here is a calculator for figuring that out and explains what it is if you are not familiar. Handy for landscapes, but would work here too.
Should probably include the link for the calculator.

Steve, what a great composition and how nice and sharp it is. It is lovely how the colours and tones blend together nicely and all complimented beautifully by your original framing technique too.
