Default Police Helicopter

Hovering over my house this afternoon, looking for someone I guess. (not me - honest). Haven't taken this sort of shot before and was a bit unprepared but gave manual mode a go, ISO 100, f/10, 1/125s to get a bit of blur in the blades. a580, tamron 70-300 which is a cheap lens and a bit soft at 300mm - hence the f10 to sharpen it up a bit - which I used here but with a bit of creative PP I think it turned out OK. C&C welcome.
