Thanks everyone for the comments! Here's a few more. I'm no expert, I set my Nikon D40 on centre-weighted exposure, no exposure compensation (as the D40 already over exposes by about one stop) in order to bring a little more detail into the subject matter. As it turns out most were slightly over-exposed and fixed in levels and sharpened in Gimp. Most shots are generously cropped. I used continuous on the shutter, most pics I panned and took around 5-6 shots. A polariser was necessary to cut the light down in order to use slow shutter speeds to get the amount of prop-blur I wanted, but then there's a very high risk of shake, but by taking heaps of shots (around 750!) there's usually one good one out of a set. I used program, and turned the dial while looking thru the viewfinder to get the shutter speed I wanted.
