Published on 11-19-2007 by Curufinwe in Screeners' choices | Permanent link | 0 comment(s)

A "'normal''" week ... but a few excellent pictures. I shall start with airliners! laughing
A320-200 - F-WWBH A340-300 - 3B-NAU
747-400 - VT-ESO A330-200 - F-WWKF

That's done with. Now, for this week's short choice, let me show you the "Patrouille de France", lined up! Then, a Blériot XI !!!!! A Dash8 engine ... and finally, a very weird plane, a Shorts Skyvan.
Patrouille de France Dash8-Q400 - 7T-VCM
Blériot XI-2 - F-AZPG Shorts SC-7 - VH-WGT

Eventually, I cannot resist showing you my special personal choice! I have seen the A380 many times; I can even see it from my window, but I have seldom seen it climbing at such a steep angle. Many thanks to Amandine once again!
A380-800 - F-WWEA

See you on next Monday for our weekly Screeners' Choice!

Here we are! Just over 2000 photos have been accepted so far! With nearly 280 pictures this week, we have set a record that - I hope - we will break as soon as next week!

Enough talking, here is our choice.
First, I have chosen to show you airliners. New liveries (Air Deccan), older ones (Airbus, Air Mauritius), unpainted planes (British Airways) and planes without engines (Emirates)!!
A320-200 - F-WWIF A320-200 - F-WWBB A330-200 - F-WWKK
A300B4 - F-WUAB A380-800 - F-WWSN 747-400 - 9M-MPD

Then, here are some pictures of an Ilyushin Il-76 taken by Amandine Lafond! Many thanks once again!
Il-76TD - 3C-HAV Il-76TD - 3C-HAV

Finally, a French Transall, an American Mustang, a Russian Yak-52 and I let you have a look at British Hawks for the Indian Air Force which came to Toulouse on their way to India.
Transall C-160NG - 64-GO Yak-52 - RA-1281K
P-51 Mustang - F-AZJM BAe Hawk 132 - ZK128

That was a very choice indeed. Many other photographs could have been chosen, but we can't take them all. However, you may leave a comment to tell us what your favourite photos are! See you on next Monday for our weekly Screeners' Choice!

Thank you

Why? you may ask. Simply because over 230 photos were accepted this week. There are more than 1700 pictures on the website and over 700 photos have been accepted in only twenty days!
So, once again, thank you!
This week's choice is quite ... "Russian"!

I would like to show you vintage planes to start with, including an Antonov An-2 wonderfully taken by Amandine Lafond (once again!).
An-2 - F-AZHB Yak-50 - F-AZYP
Yak-52 - RA-1115K T-28C Trojan - F-AZHR

After Russian vintage aircraft, Russian airliners!
Tu-154M - RA-85767 Il-62 - UR-86528 Il-96-300 - CU-T1254

Then, very "classical" airliners, but the pictures are great!
A319 - F-GRHT A340-600 - F-WWCJ 727-200 - 4K-8888

Eventually, I would like to finish with one of my favourites. Although the photo is not perfect, the aircraft is very peculiar!
Conroy Tri Turbo 3 - N235A

That is all for today. See you on next Monday for our weekly Screeners' Choice!

A smaller amount of pictures for this week, despite the great number and the quality of the photographs you have uploaded. Many new members have shown up.
We shall then make it simple and have the pictures one after another. An image is worth a thousand words!
But, before I start, I would like to thank particularly Amandine Lafond for her peculiar photos that she uploaded, and continues doing!

Two Yak-52:
Yak-52 - RA-1070K Yak-52 - RA-1529K

A Boeing 747-400 and an A330-200 with KLM colours:
747-400 - HZ-WBT7 A330-200 - PH-AOA

The Patrouille de France, in flight:
Alpha Jet - F-TERN

A BAC One Eleven visiting Toulouse-Blagnac:
BAC 1-11 - ZE432

And finally, the An-225 taken by night:
An-225 - UR-82060

I hope you have liked our selection, and see you in seven days, for our weekly Screeners' Choice!

Positioning your photographs

Published on 10-29-2007 by Curufinwe in News | Permanent link | 0 comment(s)

I guess you have often wondered where a photograph took a photograph that you love. Pictaero.com now provides you with an answer, using the pictures' positioning system!

It has been available for a number of weeks, during the upload procedure and we have finally issued the precise location where the photo was taken! If the photographer has given the data while uploading his picture, a "Shot location" link will show up on the picture's page. Then, you may click on it and a map will open with the location where the shot was taken!

For instance, let us take the Boeing 737 of Hapag-Lloyd taken by Marc-André VEILLARD: Simply click here !

Our system will enable an automatic photographs' positioning: Some of the latest cameras have an in-made GPS that stores the place where the photo was taken. If that data is kept within the picture, it will automatically be saved. Simple and quick cool!

We strongly advise you to provide people with hat information! Besides, some new useful and free devices based on that option are going to be online very soon!

Do not hesitate to send us your comments regarding this option and the way we are offering it to you. You can also give us any idea, ways of improving it ...
