Maybe not my luckiest shot but I was on the ferry to the statue of liberty and saw it approaching fast so no time to compose through the viewfinder. I just held the camera at arms length and just eyeballed the center point confirming, panned with its flight path and shot. Oh and before all y'all that are going to be posting crazy stuff with crazy expensive super teles, this was shot with a 40mm pancake on a 60D.
Great shot - the wispy cloud, backlighting, and head turn give it a lot of drama. And wow, with the 40mm? I just picked one up and can't imagine shooting fast moving subjects with one, but obviously your shot proves it's definitely possible.
