Yup. Colin's right.
This image has been beaten to death in PS. Look at the edges of the "left leg" of the FO's chair. See how the edge of the sheepskin has a blue halo? That's from creating a sloppy path around the border of the sheepskin contours and overadjustment in either the brightness/contrast or levels. Also, the "blacks" don't match up at all. They are trying to even out the exposure throughout the entire image.
In fairness to the digital production artist, they are probably not trying to fool anyone. It's obviously a PR shot intended to show every facet of the cockpit.
I tend to like the Boeing's similar shots simulating a line up at BFI with Mt. Rainier in the background.
