    Look pretty good, especially #5 with the front wheel tyre smoke. Looks like you were pretty close to get these at 70-100mm on the Nikon crop camera.

    Aircraft near the ground are usually OK to use camera setting for exposure but if you take them in the air (especially military grey aircraft) against a bright blue sky (I think I saw one of those about five years ago !!!) or white clouds you need to underexpose by 1 to 2 stops to get the colour of the plane and not the sky (i.e. use a lower f number of slower shutter speed). Alternative use manual mode, expose for the grass or runway tarmac, lock this in and then take the planes in the sky.

    Thanks for that Ive had the Nikon D5100 previously and sold it so this was the first outing with the new one along with the tamron Sp 70-300 DI VC USD. The lens I was impressed with, its well built but weighs a ton and there's a bit of imbalance as the d5100 is quite lite and a lot of shots ive had to straighten.

    Wasnt too sure which focus to use some were single point some af tracking and some 3d tracking but not sure which I should be using for planes?

    All are very good TB...1&4 being my favs. Love the Virgin aircraft just leaving the tarmac. I can't wait to take my Sigma 100-300 F4 on an outing and will have to pick something similar. Interested in focus points as well and with Uggs comments about dropping a couple of stops as well.
