Jan Arie,

Really enjoying the Le Mans images would love to see some night racing in person. All of my trips to the races have been in daylight hours.

I have slowly worked my way into the images from the Dayton Air Show. I have dedicated my Flickr set to Jane and Charlie.

The sky was not photo pretty that day but thanks to our friends at Adobe I managed to pull out a few decent ones.

These first few are of Jane, I wanted to get some nice ones for her as a thank you for the ride in Aurora. I would like to think she may see them even now.

You got some seriously nice shots there, Matt. I love the first one of Jane, she is just sitting there, no worries, just out taking some fresh air :-)

I love the head on shot of Fifi and the last yellow T-28 too. Very restful shots, somehow...

mot sure where to put this question. I would like to improve on sharpness of my plane images especially the old warbirds. Working on slower shutter speeds but still am not getting them as sharp as i would like. I use a 7d and a monopod and a canon 100-400 got tips on getting good prop blur and sharp images? Been using 125th which seems to be a good amount of prop blur. I know some use even slower speeds

I knew it was an Antonov just didn't remember the model number. Seen them flying over West Seattle going into Boeing Field in Seattle but never got a chance to get a shot close up like we did at the Everett Plant on Saturday

image below is one on the ground on a cool 108 deg day in Kuwait during Op Iraqi Freedom. hence the reason for the shot from under the belly of another A/C (777).

Jim, congrats on the 182 that is on the way. It was on of the the planes I honed in on as well when I went shopping back in 2000. I have been in DFW for work quite a bit and drove by TKI one day but had limited time or else I would have dropped a line. I like downtown McKinney quite a bit...reminded me of some historic towns in Georgia. Would be great to do lunch if your schedule ever meshes with mine. I have lots of ideas up in the air and am growing quite fond of Dallas.

J-A, you are one lucky gent to get to go to LeMans. Wonderful night images.

As an update, my absence has been due to a crazy photography schedule shooting IndyCar, Grand-AM, and AMA motorcycle races all around the southeast so far with travel to Ohio, Utah, Indy and more on the way. I never would have dreamed a camera would open so many doors. My photojournalism work can be seen at http://www.motorsport.com/all/photos/main-gallery/?ph=1419.

My son is now a check flight away from his PPL and goes on to his commercial rating and CFI to start building time. Anyway, going to get caught up and read some more of this great thread with great folks and photogs.

Nice series Matt. Campaign Gal was in the middle of restoration when I was up at Grimes for Doolittle four or five years ago. Looks like they did a nice job.

@JimClark: Most of the top aviation shooters I know don't use camera support when panning, preferring the freedom to maneuver of going hand-held. The path of an airplane through the sky during a banana pass may be simple enough, but the trajectory from the shooter's point of view is anything but.

1/125 is a good shutter speed for the flat engines, but the round engines will repay your working down toward 1/60th, and a T-6, with only two blades, won't give you a full disc until you go even slower. Helos really need 1/25 or even 1/15 for serious rotor blur, but 1/80 will at least show that you're trying. Practice acquiring your panning target off to the side with the tips of your shoes parallel to the runway, so you're square when the subject is directly in front of you and don't have to shift your feet right when they're closest to you.

But mostly it's just practice. Some folks go out and shoot cars on the street just to keep their panning chops in shape.

[edit for TOPP: I'm on the iPad again, so it's slim pickins. How about an aerial view of Monument Valley in a dust storm?]

Awww Mike! I would have loved to have grabbed lunch. Keep me posted. My schedule is going to be calming over the next few months, it seems, although I really don't see any point in completely hanging up the spurs, just doesn't seem right. let me know if you get anywhere near, we'll figure something out. If you have a race in the area, I'll come shoot with you.

Your just killing me with your aerial landscapes Steve - tremendous.

It's fire season here in balmy Arizona. A little helper returning from the last drop of the day…

Thanks Jim. The tones are His, I was just standing in a good place.

Edit to add some very very sad news. It appears that 19 fire fighters were killed this afternoon in the Yarnell Fire (north of Wickenburg). In addition, half the homes in this small town have been lost. Apparently, an unexpected thunderstorm approached, the wind switched suddenly and the fire fighters were trapped. Prayers to the families that are impacted by this tremendous loss of life.

The DC-10 tanker shown in my image is one of two working the fire today. They are also using helos and air tractors.

Isn't that the Truth Jeff! It's all "His". Unpopular perspective these days, but one day all those knees will bow as well.

Tragic news re: those fire fighters. Prayers indeed.

The other possibility is Jim might be expecting too much.

Steve, even with good panning, what would you say is an acceptable percentage of sharp keepers? Maybe 5-10%?

Well a guy can live with one or two perfect images out of a sequence, but when you get in sync with the subject and your gear, you should be able to hit 75% on any given day. Of course that depends upon the gear you are shooting with. The 1DX and series II lenses will give you that percentage and higher.

From the Nellis air show last year. Doesn't look very promising for a show this year, budget cuts and such.

I like this sequence.

Thanks - I had just purchased my 100-400L shortly before this shoot.
