The legendary Apollo 13 space capsule is lifted in the air so personel from the Kansas Cosmosphere and Space Center can get a better look at it's friction ravaged heat sheild. The spacecrafts interior will be completly restored before bieng placed on display at the museam. 1st place news, Associated Press, 1996. Camera was a cumbersome old Kodak NC-2000 digital camera.

This the real Apollo 13 space capsule about to have one man at

a museam restore it's insides. This shot taken with a Kodak

NC2000 digital camera (huge tank) ran in the New York Times

and won several awards. It's nice to get feedback on shots that

are a bit older in your collection.

I'm amazed that such nice color, contrast etc. came from that digital, nice photo. I look forward to competing against you in this years CPA contest.

Yeah, I am really impressed to that such an old digital camera can yield such nice colors. Very effective picture!

 

I know this may sound silly to you pros, but what is the CPA contest? I realize it must be a photo contest, but I'd like to know more about it out of curiousity.

For a very brief moment I thought it was the capsule in space! For all I knew it was flying over an azure ocean with the clouds. I thought, "How the heck did Daniel get a press pass for this?!". OK, I'm half-joking, but for a moment I thought it was the capsule in space. Great photo!

Initially before reading the introduction I thought you had finally captured some evidence of UFO material that hadn't been doctored! A great shot, and a piece of history.

This picture always grabs my attention. People with attention focused is part of the formula. The reflection on the heat shield is part and the sky used as a background are all components, but not all.

I hope that these people were all ok, and that you managed to rescue them before the were hit by a space vessel returing at a zillion miles per hour. Fortunately you used that extra second you had to take the photo...
