    Just got some of them back today. This is just a sample of the Oshkosh 2007 airshow including the new paint scheme and configuration of what use to be the B-24 Diamond Lil now known as ol 927. I don't have the inside pictures developed yet. Its totally different on the inside and out side if you have ever been inside Diamond Lil.

    Also is a picture of the WWII reenactment tent. The people who do this stay the whole week in these tents wearing cloths of the time period.

    I cant think of there name's right now but the picture of the two in flight gear are real Tuskegee airmen of WWII. I should be ashamed of myself for not remembering. One is Weiss ?

    Enjoy

    OK fellas, tell me somethings wrong with my monitor....

    I love the pics Mic, but they all seem alittle white, alittle too bright, almost like the angles u too them were against the reflection of the sun... Not being overcritical, just constructive....

    Or just asking if my monitor is outta whack...

    I think it may be an artifact of scanning pictures, or negatives. It can sometimes have a tendency to leave pictures looking a bit overexposed. That is one of the many reasons I gave up film, I could never get a scan to look anywhere near as good as the print.

    Ive noticed the same thing, As Eric has said I think it has something to do with the coating on the pictures that reflect's the lights scan. The only reason I havent converted to digital is because I love to have the picture albums and I have never seen pictures printed out as nice.

    Im thinking of going digital for next years airshow. Just not sure what kind of camera I will get.

    Beside's can always use some advice from the pro's on how to improve them. :lol: Im always into improvement. Sad to say some of these warbirds will not be around forever. At least from a flying aspect. :cry:

    I can tell you that nowadays, you can get photographic prints done cheaply that you can't tell were not done with a film camera. I recently used Walmart for some photo prints. I got 8x10s for about $2 each. Kodak also offers them inexpensively that you can pick up locally. I don't remember the pricing, but it was very reasonable.

    Having photo albums is nice, but you can extend the reach of people who see your pictures by either making a website or using a site like photobucket or flicker.

    If you need advice on digital camera gear, ask away.
