Digital photo and video tinkerers continue to find new ways to create art with pixels and a San Diego film and photography professor challenged himself with a unique representation of short final at San Diego's Lindbergh Field. Cy Kuckenbaker compressed five hours of arrivals at the airport on Black Friday into a 26-second clip that turns the routine traffic into waves of aircraft visually stacked on each other. Watch it all the way to the end for a nice touch.

Kuckenbaker told PetaPixel he shot video of every aircraft that landed between 10:30 a.m. and 3 p.m. on Nov. 23, which offered the clear blue sky he needed. There's also an eight-hour time-lapse of a bridge (the light and shadows change to give a sense of time) and a puffy cloud still that all go together to create a pretty cool video.
