Thanks for all the replies so far!
Quoting Paulinbna (Reply 1): I think the first one get rejected for the dark screens.
This was my initial reaction, and I hope this is the case. I think it could definitely be improved if I had gotten the flash to not bounce off the screens. (It seemed to get better and better as the sun went down. I started out in broad dailight, same settings, and screens were COMPLETELY black. Then, they got more and more readible. Very interesting...any thoughts?? Unfortunately, I landed before the sun went down more, although, as you can seen in the second one, the sun is lower, but the screens are more readable - - unfortunately, it doesn't have the G1000's glass screens.) Also, I, as a pilot, enjoy the motive of seeing what's on the inside AND the outside - It's most like real flying (unless you are in actual IFR conditions) , where you see what is outside AND inside almost at the same time. I know of a few examples of this in the DB, and they are some of my absolute favorites, so I was almost trying to immitate this with my shots (only after I figured out how though It's always soooo interesting to figure out new techniques, etc. for photography. There are so many BEAUTIFUL things that I see every time I fly, but I simply don't know how to capture in by camera.)
Once again, thanks for the replies! I hope they keep coming. Like I said, I hope to take many more shots like these, and I (very much) want to improve them. They'll only be Cessna's for now, but I garuntee you that as soon as I start flying the big ones, I'll take pics from them also!
