This is 1960's technology which is still the fastest air breathing aircraft in the world!

How about self-created sci-fi tech? This is a lighting, art direction and prop test from my forthcoming sci-fi thriller (if I can ever get the funding for it.) Everything in the photo I created myself including the photo itself, of course.

Ok here I go. I am not the best at judging so I am going to do my best. I really enjoyed everyone's pictures.

Great shot to start the thread. I have been wanting to take a trip to DC to see this in person. I love this shot.

Cool shot but I think it's lacking something. Maybe a different angle would have been better.

Great shot. A place I hope to visit someday. Very well composed and I love the fog as well.

A shot of the most pressed button that I use on a daily basis. Just like before I think it needs a different angle to make it pop more.

Awesome. I would love to hear more about this movie you are making. Just looking at this makes me want to know as much as possible about it.

Nice shot. My mom had one just like this. Brings back lots of memories of my mom typing on it.

This makes me ask the question what is being made? Another cool piece of tech to help make other cool pieces of tech.

Great shot! I see the afterburners on so this guy must of been going very fast and to get such a sharp shot of it must of been very hard. Very well done.

I love old planes. I just feel that this shot is missing something. The background is a little distracting.

Wow really wasn't expecting this with all the other great entries! Been really busy this week so had to use an older photo! Didn't think it would end up winning!

Will have a think and post something later today.

Well done to everyone else!
