Capturing motion is so hard !

Here's an effort taken yesterday.  Its a Pilatus PC-9M trainer used by the Aer Corps.  They're warming up for Easter.

Just not sharp enough though.  A heavy crop.

1/500th, f6.3, ISO 100, 600mm

All CC welcomed

Guess the question may be, were you trying to capture motion or detail, whereas capturing both seems perhaps more difficult than we might imagine..? Think it was perhaps Chimpy who used to post super panning pics on occasion, capturing a sense of high speed when he used great panning techniques to bring out detail using the background blur and spinning wheels to convey high speed movement...?


I guess we have an idea that aircraft do not float in the sky generally, thus few would think it stationary...(-: You captured detail enough in both the shape of the kite and it`s markings to make it of interest, and it would seem unfair to compare it to those who`s specialist subject may be aircraft photography, given their dedication to perfection by way of finding perfect locations weather and the amount of practice they have had...?
