OK, so here's my entry No. 1

-2008-jun-17-008.jpg

German Bi-plane performing to oohs from the crowd. Then the raids get in the way!

If I win, which by the looks of it, will, I'll get the Airbus Series - Volume 1, but will probably get Airbus Collection!

Just a couple of pointers that may help.

Bi-planes in combat often flew low over trees and hedges which makes for some great shots.

Taking a shot with the aircraft making up about 5% of the picture with the other 95% sky and grass makes a great shot for a scenery competition.

Many aircraft from WWI often flew with some incredible camo patterns which always look good in a screenshot.

Many stunt display teams still fly Bi-planes and their lies no end of interesting shots.

One of the most interesting parts of a bi-plane is the fact it has 2 wings with struts and cables holding it all together, a top down shot may as well be a monoplane.

Watch the blue max, one of the best wwI fighter aircraft films ever made.

Hope something here gets your creative juices flowing...

Here you go - no edits up my sleeve, just FSRecorder - 2 Westlands conquering Everest, as Sir Chris Bonnington would say, The Hard Way!

I'd like to say hi to everyone on the forum. I saw a link from the Justflight site about a screenshot competition and here I am. The entries so far have been great. Here is mine, the Bristol F-2B, heading south over England. It is my favourite biplane and, after it's bad start, the most successful two-seat fighter of World War I and a superb model in fsx.
