So very similar to the styling of the Spitfire, which I thought it was, but in the wrong livery. :?

This is quite the opposite of the Spitfire and is in fact the Spits foe the Messerschmitt BF-109. However this is slightly different because it was built post war for the Spanish Air Force. Due to lack of original German type engines it was powered by the famed Rolls Royce Merlin which I'm sure you know powered the Spitfire. They called it the Buchon, which apparently means Sea Gull. Though not actually being able to speak Spanish I don't know that for sure. The German markings are purely for airshows and it should be in Spanish colours for authenticity but there are so few original German fighters left and the Spitfire needs an opponent during these mock dogfights.

I understand its enemy status. But on first sight, it looked so similar.

Thanks for the rest of the info. At least they fitted it with a good engine.

I used Google translator, and it didn't recognise Buchon. So I typed in Seagull in English, and the Spanish result is gaviota. :?

After a quick google I found that according to wikipedia, Buchon actually means a male dove or a pelican in Spanish. I don't know where I got Sea Gull from? I guess I some wires got crossed in my brain. :D

I would say you pay attention to giving the image "movement" all the time. Its one of your most notable qualities. In-particular not freezing the prop. It is also harder to achieve on the ground as the prop can be just above "idle" or being manipulated in some way.

I thank you once again for the very kind words. I always shoot propeller aircraft with a shutter speed of less than 1/320, slower if possible to allow for prop blur. Of course all aircraft are different so what works for one will not for the other. Aerobatic types are easier as their propellers are small and turn much faster yet some of the older two bladed aircraft such as this Sopwith Triplane needed even slower shutter because the blade is quite thick and does not turn nearly as fast, I used 1/160 to achieve the blur.
