Pic(k) of the week 30: Amelia's Lockheed Electra

Earlier this week I made two large aviation photography prints; the first one was a 130 cm wide canvas of my recent DC-3 Dakota shot.

The second one, a large black and white print of this 1936 Lockheed 12A, made at the 2011  Sun 'n Fun fly-in Lakeland, Florida. The aircraft underwent a 19 year long restoration and first flew again in 2007. This beautiful aircraft which appeared in the movie "Amelia" is in pristine condition and has won multiple awards at fly-ins like Airventure and Sun 'n Fun.

Image details:
Nikon D700 with 24-70 2.8
ISO 200, 42mm, f8, 1/800s
Lightroom 3 RAW processing
SilverEfex 2 for Black and White conversion

One can clearly see yours truly in the reflection of the spinner. The detail in the print is amazing! 

The original color image can be found here.

On a different note, in a few days I'll be off the the French Pyrenees to do some more paragliding. More than likely my Pic(k) of the week will be late by a few days... Expect the 31 one around August 5.

Till then,
don't just take pictures, make pictures,
