Hi all....
Thanks for the comments. I was afraid this pictures was rejected for being blurry, but it was intended to be so! How can you show action when the motiv is "frozen"? I choosed to focus on the slow flying Jaguar, but I will admit the shutterspeed should have been a little faster.

Hey, we screeners aren't that bad! The only reason I considered rejecting this one was for BADUPSTAGINGTHESCREENERS  Smile

Erik,
I would say you choose the perfect shutter speed. Wouldn't have wanted that shot any other way! Excellent!

Yes it is very easy. A gentle press on the botton (at the right time).
That´s all!!!
Oh yes, and one eye watching the incoming aircraft.

These are my two attempts and as you can see, not to the same quality. maybe I don't get as many chances to practice it but that's why I am going to spend all Summer doing so  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

...And this is how it looks when you only have a 100mm lens. Big grin

Most of Frikke's pictures are really spectavular. Too bad he doesn't post too often here.

Thom@s.
Maybe you have noticed, I have got a lot of pictures on A.net lately. I have got new equipment, so I can scan more pictures. I have several thousands to choose from! Not all of them spectacular action shots,though.
