Flight Control Panel In Abstract

BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest Finalist
 
Flight Control Panel In Abstract
Flight Control Panel In Abstract
PERMISSION TO PHOTOGRAPH WAS GRANTED. On a flight from Tampa to Miami, I noticed there was no door to the pilot's section of the plane. It was a small Beech aircraft, that holds only about 30 or 40 passengers. Anyway, it was dark, so the instrument panel was very bright and colorful. I set my camera to 30 seconds at f/3.5 and shot. During the shooting, I tilted my camera up once then down. If you look closely, you can see the numbers and shapes of the panel elements.

Of course I asked the co-pilot for
permission to do this! The co-pilot even looked at the photograph. There is absolutely nothing recognizable.

To confirm, I contacted the airline and asked again. They said that since there was no flash and no detail in the image, then the photo is perfectly fine.

Glad you mentioned that, Colleen as I forgot to post that information.

Gosh Paula, I would have even have thought there would be a problem even if it were crystal clear.

I agree with Susan.
It's not like this is a secret aircraft.
Anyway, the photo is excellent!
I love the bright color, shapes and textures.
Great job of using what you have to make a great photo!
