As you see in the accepted photo, the photographer (William Ronciere) captured the entire cockpit with very little interruption from the flight crew. What you have, is more focused on the pilot and co-pilot, therefore, amking the shots "unworthy".
Hey if the photos please you, keep on shooting, don't shoot for this website, shoot for your own fun.
They are great photos in my opinion.

There isn't really anything of interest in the rejects. Jump seat shots like that require a point of interest, otherwise they end up looking like you just took them because you were there. When I open them, and you have to look all around the image to find something I think you wanted to show us, that is bad motive.

Mandala, if your talking about the rectangular thingy just above the HSI, I dont think thats for a HUD...it appears to be some form of radarscope?...kinda looks like those devices that eye doctors use to test vision to me...very scope-esque...

With all due respect to Greg, I fear that it is indeed an HUD, I should have been seated in the other jumpseat as the only way to get a picture of the image is to sit directly behind the Captain. Anyways, what you see inside is a green image a little bit similar to the PFD except there is no artificial horizon, enabling the pilot to stay straight and level by maintaining the aircraft in the center of the display.
