Glad to see this featured, as this was a tough shot to get with my little point-and-shoot digital camera with the 3X optical zoom. For those who are interested, I used the auto-focus to focus on the pylons, then shifted the view over so that the pylons were to the right of the frame. Then when the plane when through, because it was about the same distance from me as the pylons (which the camera had focused on), the plane was in focus. I then cropped the photo down to about half it's original size to really bring the focus on the pylons, the plane and the river.

Cheers,
Greg
