Submit your screenshot for the SOTM of July 2020

Postby Anarcho-pilot » Sat Jul 11, 2020 8:53 pm

Hello everyone!

Now's your chance to submit your candidate for July's FlightGear SOTM contest!

Participation Rules
1. 20 entries (because a poll can only have 20 options).
2. Only one entry per person to give everyone a fair chance of submitting a screenshot.
3. You may enter one extra for somebody else. This person of course can submit their own candidate.
4. If you submit a screenshot of another person, please make sure he/she grants you the right to publish it under the correct license.
5. Please convert your picture from .png to .jpg (plenty of converters online).
6. Must be taken with FlightGear.
7. Every picture should have a caption. It would be useful to add the name of the aircraft and the location, where the screenshot was taken, to the caption. (For example: "Greeting the dawn - C172P, Keflavik".) Otherwise, please, mention it at least in your entry.
8. Screenshots must not be post-processed except from cropping and/or resizing (but you may use the in-sim ALS filters). You may also add titles mentioning an author of the screenshot and/or aircraft/location displayed on it.
9. You may change your entry as often as you want, until the voting starts.
10. You agree to license your screenshot under the CC-BY-SA 4.0 license for publication by the FlightGear project.
11. You agree that the screenshot may be used to promote the FlightGear project, including publication on the flightsim.com forum with proper attribution according to the CC-BY-SA 4.0 license.

Here is a Wiki article with some advice on making nice screenshots: http://wiki.flightgear.org/Howto:Make_nice_screenshots .

Voting will start when 20 entries are reached or at the latest on August 1st, in a separate topic.

Best wishes - Anarcho-pilot.

That view nearly got me goosebumps from a sheer horror story about two ferry pilots who, without winter kitting the aircraft, without any real survival training and with no emergency beacon on their person they IIRC tried to fly from USA to Sweden.

Miraculously they both survived, but just barely. The engines seized at the latitude of Baffin Island, and the dingy with supplies, emergency beacon and other signaling devices went down in the water with the aircraft, and they spent the night in dry suits shivering to the bone on an ice sheet. :?

Luckily I did my flight in mid summer, about FL85, 4 passengers and quite some cargo, only a short way to go and not too cold ...

Gorgeous! 8) The color tones reminds me a lot of National Geographic covers from back when a lot of them were shot with the discontinued Kodachrome film.

Find me in Multiplayer as "Mars006". I fly all around the world, but I usually hang out in ZBAA and the surrounding airports.
Everyone be safe and let's hope the pandemic can be over soon.
Have fun flying!
