    Having had the (mis?)fortune to be on the groundcrew for the Nimrod static display at Yeovilton last weekend, I took my spanky new D50 along, and took some pics. These are by far the best of a bad bunch, but I did put all the automatic settings off, and did it the old fashioned way.....

    The Red Arrows. I couldn't have felt happier about this shot if I tried!

    More Arrows

    Dancing Lynxes

    The "view from the office"

    And finally, St Mary Magdalenes, Taunton

    Again, any critique happily recieved. I want to get better....

    That first shot is incredible!!! Love it!

    Nice office too. It's a pitty about the lynxes that you didn't use a slower shutter speed to show the movement in the blades though, at the moment they just look pasted into a white sky :(

    Nikon D50, and a Tamron AF70-300mm f/4-5.6 LD.

    1st was at 300mm focal length. 1/3200s exposure, f6 and ISO 200.

    2nd at 250mm, 1/1000s, f5.3 and ISO 200.

    There are more almost that good, but I haven't had time to get them presentable yet..... ;)

    How did you get the shot inside the nimrod? Was it down to sweet talking? Or is it literally your office?

    EDIT: I've just your details. Thats a pretty cool job.
