    Thanks for the info. I sensed it wouldn't be an easy shot to make.

    thank you all for the comments. JO - f22, iso 100 plus strong ND filter = long exposure. One challenge for this shot was shooting very nearly into the rising sun (bottom right corner of picture). Took a number of repositions of the camera to get it right (and at ~ 2 mins/shot, mosquitoes had ample time to locate and drain me - but nothing a quick transfusion couldn't fix though...) Too much sun, insufficient time (and no good, long cloud streaks). Too little sun, too much time (> 3 or 4 mins) and loss of prominent streaking in clouds due to clouds passing over each others course.

    Very impressive finish and quite a nice average too! Now let's hear about avoiding the overexposure.

    Looks like some old spacecraft returning to earth after a long voyage. Fantastic shot - very well done.

    first thought a great air to air shot in a aerobatics sortie.

    My #1. Really like the B&W style. Love the streaks in the sky from the long exposure.
