    P-40K kittyhawk shot at 100mm, 1/160s, f/8, iso200

    Oh stop it---you have to give some of us a chance to get off work, deal with the family, and scratch the dog before we plop our plump A....s in front of the computer.


    Now---I love the shots, Number two is especially appealing to me.


    Nice work

    Me too. I tried to shoot Marine 1 on the weekend and had to crop a giant 5000x3000 200mm shot to about 2000 just to get it in full frame...

    thanks guys..............and appologies if my comment seemed out of place......its just nice to get comments after taking the time to upload and post, not to mention the time that one takes to actualy shoot something for a couple hours.......and when one has pictures posted, and everytime i looked, my post was being pushed further and further down the list of posts......i was getting dejected


    once again thanks for the kind words........and i love my 100-400 lens, its been on my camera 90% of the time since i got it off of kijiji over a month ago

    Love your shots Jim!


    I saw your posts before, but I wanted to sort out my own photos of an airshow first and then post some and reply here.


    Still haven't sorted them entirely, I guess I needed to do that faster [] Renting the 7D and very bad weather also resulted in some disappointment especially with sorting the photos...


    Ill post some in here: Post your favorite airplane shots


    Perhaps you can post a few there as well and we activate that topic again. I'm sure there will be others going to airshows this summer []
