No TC. I did crop the picture quite a bit as well. It was quite chilly last night and the sky was quite clear. The moon was also almost directly overhead. These factors must have contributed towards the sharpness.

Whatever the factors were, the results speak for themselves.

Here is one that I thought might result in an accident:

1/400sec, 550mm, ISO320, F/8. This is cropped to less than half the size of the original image, and then resized down to 1000px wide.

Some other misc photos:

The FedEx MD-11 made a very unstable landing attempt. It was being tossed about by nasty cross winds, and when it flared - it flared too much and floated above the runway. It eventually did touch down. It was spectacular to watch.

When I first looked at that I though there were two seperate planes in the first photo... that surely would have led to an accident!

Thanks, I was stood 8 foot from the guys and the lighting was quite consistant throughout which made getting photos much easier!

@Dexter: Usually when I shoot in a forest or woods I can't find enough contrast for my liking, too many similar greens and browns, sadly as a result of the tragic events of earlier this year you have been able to capture some striking shots. The second to last one is my favourite, the mist and the contrast between the bare wood and the burnt bark are an eerie reminder...
