    Best Shot Competition

    Here's an idea...

    Screen Shot Competition:
    #1. Statue of Liberty

    Closed to new entries. See the results here!

    Calling all pilots/photographers...

    Let's see who can come up with the best in-game screenshot with the Statue of Liberty!



    To submit your screenshot, post it below or send it to wingman@msflights.net.

    Rules:
    - Have (at least part of) the Statue of Liberty in the shot
    - No post-production editing allowed (except cropping)
    - Use one of the common virtual aviation platforms (FSX, Prepar3D, X-Plane, DCS, etc)
    - Have at least one aircraft in the shot
    - All submissions must be made prior to Monday, June 13th, at 06:59 Zulu (2:59 AM Eastern)(Sunday at 11:59 PM Pacific)
    - Only one submission allowed per person

    Notes/Clarifications:
    - All 3rd party addons are OK... I'd love to see the best of what you've got for aircraft/weather/lighting/scenery/etc.
    - The aircraft in the shot can be your own, someone else's, AI, FSrecorder-ed, whatever.
    - Any type aircraft is allowed... this includes helicopters, balloons, fixed wing, one wing, two wing, three wing, floor wing.
    - The aircraft can be in the foreground or the background -- whatever you think works best for your image.
    - If you already submitted an image, you can still change it before the deadline.
    - The Statue of Liberty can be found 6nm East of KEWR (Newark).

    Judging:
    After the deadline, I will create a poll for public voting.

    PRIZES!!!!!!:
    Well, nothing really, other than the pride one gets when being involved in such a cool competition, and prestige earned when winning.

    Old thread, I know, but new thought that, as a former New Yorker, I found interesting: In what state is the Statue of Liberty? New York; right?... ... riiiight? Ever heard of an "exclave" before? Me neither, until now!

    so, why is it closed to new entries, and voting already started?
    Thanks for keeping things in check, but, yeah, I posted the reason just above. . . I didn't expect such a quick response from everybody (and I didn't consider the poll limitation when coming up with the initial plan).

    Don't worry, if you wanted to post an entry, there will be another competition to follow the conclusion of this one!

    That was in P3D 3.2 (haven't updated yet) with the following:
    A2A 172 (With my custom paint )
    Drzewiecki Design New York City X 2.0
    REX 4 with Soft Clouds
    Realism Shader Pack


    And I doubt they were in the shot, but also:
    FTX Global
    FTX Global Vector

    I will admit for that shot I flew to the spot (no slewing), then paused and turned every slider all the way up and checked every box I could. Then I changed the time to get just the right light. I went from flyable at 34fps locked, to struggling to get 10fps. A short time later I got an OOM.

    New York City X is very intensive, but with modest graphic settings can run great and always looks fantastic.

    Thanks for posting, everyone!

    On a technicality, I'm going to close the competition earlier than expected... The maximum number of options in a forum poll is 10, and I have 10 images already!


    Look for the official album and voting poll to be posted soon. . .
