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 and one photo that stands above the others is awarded an AVweb baseball cap as our "Picture of the Week." Want to see your photo here? Click here to submit it to our weekly contest.
Past, Meet the Future ...
Dan Yocum of St. Charles, IL
Taken on July 30, 2009 with a Canon SD700 IS, f/2.8, 1/125s. This is a photo of one of my twin daughters sitting in my then newly purchased Pietenpol Aircamper at Airventure 2009. This is the same Aircamper that entered the Airventure Race after being flown from San Luis Obispo to Dayton, then to OSH.
Christine Chaponnier of Grand-Lancy, Geneva (Switzerland)
Submitted with permission by Gilbert Benzonana Photo taken with a Panasonic DMC-TZ3 camera at 1/320 sec, F 8.0, 8 mm focal length. No other modification than recentering and reduction of the original file under 1 MB. Paragliders in the Swiss winter sport station of Verbier.
This Chihuahuan Desert Raven was just the right distance from the camera to remain in the viewfinder for several frames. The C-17 was on approach to Cannon AFB, NM on January 9, 2011. Cropped for zoom. Panasonic DMC-FZ18 Lumix.
