Thanks for the kind words everyone!
Jason- That was a 10 second exposure on a tripod. The blur is probably because the wind was howling! It was VERY windy, and within 12 hours of that photo, Fort Wayne was covered by nearly 2 inches of ice.
Be that as it may - not only did Kitty Hawk fly during those nights - they were ON
And FloTro - you're right - the 300D rocks! Even with the kit lens!
