Audacious attempt and all credit to you for trying it but it does look a touch blurry I have to say (as well as jagged in places). Problem is, to deal with the distance rejection you'd have to crop to enlarge the aircraft in the frame and that would only accentuate the blur. I'm no Photoshop guru but I doubt if it can be saved.
Make the most of the available light ... a lesson of photography that applies to life

J I'm at work so i cant comment on quality here.
But your panning shots are always top notch one of my all time favourites is the emirates at Sydney.
But for distance it does need to be cropped closer.

I doubt the salvageability of this one Javier due to the above mentionned reasons. You'd definitely have to crop in closer and that would make it even harder, if not impossible, to correct the blurry and quality issues (for A.net standards).
Gutsy attempt though with 600mm and 1/10s exposure and pretty good result for that combination anyway! Just do some more workout and next time you'll be able to keep the camera perfectly steady.

Comparing a daylight ISO 100 shot to an early morning one at ISO 400 and a 300mm to a 600mm with 1/100th compared to 1/10th isn't the same league, don't you think?
Sorry if this sounds harsh, but you seem to have the need of contributing just about anything.
How valuable is this to tell somebody else the settings for a pan? Another airport, longer distances ( 600mm for an A340 not even full frame, the distance for a light aircraft? Go figure. ), less light, different intentions.

Quoting INNflight (Reply 8): but you seem to have the need of contributing just about anything.
Can't you stop? You said me to show a pan, that one is the best I've got. What do you think I am? Javier Guerrero 2? I'm me, and I haven't got the experience as Javier has got, but when I give opinions, you are bashing like I don't know what...
Yeh, because you've got a much better panning shot than I, that means that you may say everything bad about me as you want?

1/100th is panning now?
I do think Aero145 is entitled to give his opinion on the issues with the shot, no need to shoot him down because he comes off like a goof in his own posts, he is right here.. But the advice about trying it ona different aircraft at 1/60th is hardly helpful.
J, you heard my opinions on the shot. It probably was rejected as a bordercase.

Just for the record, this is not handheld, no way I could do that with the EF 600 f4!
Quoting IL76 (Reply 16): 600mm? Did you buy a new lens there?!
Nope, I just borrowed a friend's! I plan to get myself an EF 500 f4 in the near future, though
@David: you had it coming, because (first of all) it seems you did not even read my post. I did not complain about the rejection in any way, I did not even ask for opinions on the shot, I know very well why it was rejected; I just asked for help editing it for A.net. Anyway you jumped in here to criticise my shot (I did have a laugh with your first post). Well, Tim is right when he says

but I think you usually come a bit too "aggressive" in many of your posts before you have earned the respect of the forum (if you wish to be like that, cool, but do not complain if people come at you because of it; learn from JeffM ) It could be a cultural thing though, I know for a fact that Icelanders do not have exactly the same character as Spaniards...
