And I'm wondering what settings would be used to get this kind of shot
I was taking some sunset shots the other night @ ISO 400 f9-13, and came up with some ok shots considering I was exposing for 1/2sec - 3 seconds. Nice when things are not moving, but when you have an f-16 flying by how in the hell do you get a shot like this and keep it in focus with such little light?

Not exactly a stupid question. The only way I could answer this is by telling you the way I go about it; first I'll choose Tv on the (Canon) camera, then dial in a shutter speed that I know I can handle under these circumstances. Then I'll experiment a little, choose a faster shutter speed and so on. It's all about trying, trying, trying!!!

Serioulsy Ted A good book is a nice start but much like PS I learn the most when I just use trial and error. Go to the airport and experiment on whatever goes by, if the sun is good try F8 and just experiment with the different modes and learn Exposure the most! I think most av-photogs struggle with that when they start out. Exposure comp is the most important tool on your camera. Especialy when that sun is bright and high in the sky.
