Submit a Photo
Each week, we go through dozens (and sometimes
hundreds) of reader-submitted photos and pick the very best to share
with you on Thursday mornings. The top photos are featured on
AVweb's home page, and one photo
that stands above the others is awarded an AVweb baseball cap as our
"Picture of the Week."
Want to see your photos featured?
Submit them here!
A quick note for submitters: If you've got several
photos that you feel are "POTW" material, your best bet is to submit
them one-a-week! That gives your photos a greater chance of seeing
print on AVweb, and it makes the selection process a little easier on
us, too. ;)
*** THIS WEEK'S WINNERS ***
Used with permission of
Michael J. Mercer
While most of our readers were bundling
up and fighting the cold weather last week,
Michael J. Mercer of Vienna, Virginia was spending the first
days of winter in the Bahamas. While he didn't have the foresight
to invite us along, he did take his camera and submit a handful
of gorgeous photos.
By happy circumstance, this particular photo was not only our
favorite reader photo this week; it also featured the two motifs that
dominated the post-Christmas week of submissions sunsets and
seaplanes. (You'll find more of both at AVweb's home page
during the first week of January.)
Thanks for lifting our spirits, Michael. May the rest of your
trip at Cape Santa Maria be as lovely as the photos!
Oh, and here's
just because it makes great wallpaper.
AVweb continues to receive a large number of excellent images for
our POTW contest. Here are some of the runners-up. Due to privacy issues,
AVweb does not publish e-mail addresses of
readers who submit photos.
Florida Seaplane Hazard
John Robbins checks in from another
warm climate (Orlando, Florida) to warn us of a parking hazard peculiar
to his neck of the woods gators! (Click through to the
image and read the sign.)
This photo was taken last spring at Sun 'n Fun which reminds us:
It won't be long until we're down there checking out the seaplane base
for ourselves. (How time flies!)
Stearman Off into the Sunset
We started with a seaplane, and we'll wrap with a sunset.
David Rosinsky of Las Vegas, Nevada
submitted our favorite of many great-looking sunset photos this week.
We'll trickle a few more into the slideshow on the home page, but if you
only grab one to use as your desktop wallpaper, this should be it!
Or maybe the windsock sunset from Gary Percy. Or maybe
Ohhh, now you see why it's so hard to do this feature every week.
We get entirely too many great photos. (Woe is us.)
Heap more indecision upon us by
submitting your photos, then join us here next week for
another helping of AVweb reader photos!
