Crikey, that's good!

What settings did you use and is it a crop?

I don't think it is a crop because of the dark corner from the lens.

setting:shutter priority
exposure: 1/1250
aperture: f5.3
iso: 100
focal length: 105mm

came across a few difficulties. 1) freezing the picture at 1/1250 under exposed a little. 2) At 105mm and only 50m away tracking the action was fairly difficult. 3) I was shooting continuous 6 shots at a time as anticipating the action was hard but shooting in bursts made it slightly easier.

oh and its not a crop, that is the full image. This was one of the lucky ones where I tracked the action at the right time. .

Auto focus? nah I was manual focusing the whole time. It was hard to focus correctly coz I didn't have any guide as its a shot of the sky, but I focused on the top of the ramp and moved up to the jump path.

shot in shutter priority.
