The first one looks like a very, very, very good scan which clearly shows what film is capable of as long as the source material and scan is good.

This seems like a Mobile Phone shot PhotoStitch, still pretty neat though.

I was gonna cast a PC vote on this, just so beautiful, but it must be past the 7 days because I am unable to vote. However, just wanted to at least post here. Just a really classy scene captured very well.

Thanks Ron!

I'm rather happy with the shot myself and glad I got to capture it the way I did, especially considering that between seeing the plane, considering the potential for a nice shot, getting the camera out of the bag, screwing on the right lens, unscrewing the lens caps, checking the settings, aligning for the shot and pushing the trigger only about 30s elapsed.

Exactly! I think all the 737 needs is a little more punch of Contrast & slight sharpening.

These two for me. Not so much for the quality of the pictures as such (they're nice shots), but more for the nice coincidence pertaining to the date and place the pictures were taken. Both taken on the exact same day at the same airport, 25 years ago: August 3, 1986 at Frankfurt! Alastair's photo was accepted in 2005, while Marc's shot was accepted yesterday. The two photogs must've been quite close to each other when they took their shots, and may or may not have realized it. Small world

I would guess that the participation in the photo contest is somehow reserved as long as you have those rules:

Quote: "... Entrance Fees and Entry Submissions: $50.00 (U.S.)..."

and especially this:

Quote: "...All entries become the sole property of Aviation Week..."


I have to pay that you can do whatever you want with my pictures ???

What a stunning image to bring up his 200th accepted shot! JPC is one of the contributors to this website that I'm a fan of. His airport overviews and exotic shots from Afghanistan are as beautiful as his cockpit photos!

Hi there - just to clarify, the photographer does retain rights to their photos. That rule - which do need to be updated to reflect digital submissions - harks back to the times when people mailed in photos.

Thank you for the kind words Paulo, I was delighted when I got home from LHR and saw the results full screen, they looked good on the back of the camera, but you can't be certain from that.

I am delighted to get such an amazing reaction to these uploads, I have 3 shots in Photographer's Choice at one time which is a dream come true   

Makes up for having my monopod with new ball head stolen on the same day    left it against the perimeter fence for less than 5 minutes and it was gone.....lesson learned the hard way

Hopefully I can get some more shots from this trip uploaded shortly

Great photo, agreed Tony & Acontador. I'm glad Ed stuck to how he wanted this to look, instead of doing the cookie cutter approach and editing it to how Anet wants it to look.

I would also throw a kudos (good job) to the screeners accepting this! The low in frame and off center aircraft is refreshing and appealing to the viewer. Excellent job by them getting this in.

Hey thanks for picking out my Bone photo..
It was with the Mk4 and 300/2.8.
It's a brilliant lens but great for these types of shots as it's so light and well balanced.
Pretty lucky as the original has only a tiny bit of room from nose and tail to frame edge..lucky!
Great thread as always with brilliant photos...love Ed's 330 shot..
