Well done, as this a powerful capture of this plane as the propeller slightly out of focus along with the great smoke trail on such a wonderful clear sky.

Amazing photo with great detail in the plane. The plume of smoke leads us right to the subject, excellent placement in the frame.   Posted: 09/10/2020 14:45:17

Hi Wendy
a fantastic image as an aviation photographer the plane is a Pitts S1 special specifically home built for aerobatics you have caught the prop movement really well you obviously have great panning skills next time drop the shutter speed down one more and you will get the full prop rotation fantastic image one to be proud of.   Posted: 09/13/2020 16:01:55

Well done on capturing this so well. The colours work too with the red on blue. You've a slow enough shutter speed to capture the props but, as was said, could you go any slower and still keep the rest in focus? Well done!   Posted: 09/20/2020 09:56:42

That is so cool. The colorful and patterned plane against the beautiful sky is amazing and of course the smoke really adds as a way of leading your eye up and to the plane.   Posted: 09/21/2020 13:42:11
