My (HDR) view of Oshkosh

Monday, July 30th, 2012

AOPA writers, editors, reporters?, content creators?, whatever we are, each spend three and sometimes more hours per day beside our Husky talking with members during Sun `n Fun, AirVenture, and AOPA Summit. Between visitors, I took this iPhone shot with an app called Pro HDR. It combines three pictures exposed for bright areas, dark ones, and middle tones (the shot you would normally get) and averages them out. The result is “high dynamic range,” or HDR.

This appears to be one of our most popular sweeps planes ever. At Sun `n Fun members told me, “It’s a real GA airplane.” At Oshkosh the main comment was, “It’s beautiful.” That’s a little unusual considering only 10 percent of our members are tailwheel pilots. “I’ll learn to fly a taildragger if I win that one,” a Sun `n Fun visitor said.
