I spotted this guy on my home from work today, pulled off the road, jumped out of the car with my D Rebel and my 70-210 3.5-4.5USM.
Kind of a crappy hazy sky, and my first attempt at Aviation, so be kind;)

Good grab shots. For when you have more time, do a search for "Threads started by" Marauder61 for some inspiration. Or look at his gallery which has the exif data: Marauder61 (http://www.pbase.com/marauder61/root) Airshow guys - prop freeze?

Great shots. If they came out that good just jumping out, think how good you can do at the air show!

Real nice shots for a grab and shoot. Seems a bit noisy to me, but maybe it's my sleep deprived eyes. Marauder61 has some of the best aviation shots I've ever seen. Take PhotosGuy's advice and check out Marauder's site.

I like the shot how close were you to the craft? I like a lot. Questionnon related to airplane but how do oyu place your name etc on the picture, is this done inside program, stupid it has to be . IS their any way when you take a lot of pictures that a program can label each picture you take in same manner, kind of like time stamping the picture but instead use your name etc.

I was standing in the road, it flew right over me as it came in for landing. "watermark" on pic is from faststone (http://faststone.org/FSResizerDetail.htm), a free program that can batch resize and add text or watermarks to all your photo files

P.S. My pp really sucked back then! Is this any better?

is this any better? Sharper, but over sharpened. See the halo around it?
I'd crop some off the left, but with the lack of prop blur, I'd just move on to something else?

Yeah, I was mostly looking at the noise, And I couldn't find the original Raw file, must have missed it when I moved my files to the new PC
