SkyPixel, the world's largest community dedicated to aerial photography, has released its top picks of aerial photos taken by photographers and drone enthusiasts from around the world. These 10 photos were considered to be some of the best works submitted to the SkyPixel 2016 Photo Contest thus far.

The SkyPixel 2016 Photo Contest is still accepting entries and will continue to run until December 30, 2016. Photographs from any type of aerial platform are welcome and participants can submit as many photos as they like throughout the contest period.  And if these entries are anything to go by, we strongly suggest working extra hard on your drone piloting scenes right away.
