N958AT - AirTran B712
The obvious weak point here is the fact that the pilots are still sitting in their seats, but after a 20 minute ground stop in RDU
and another 15 minutes getting vectored around Atlanta because of a runway switch on their last flight of the day, I didn't have the heart to ask the kind crew to delay their trip home any further. Better luck on that front next time, I suppose. I did my best to balance the flash exposure with the ambient to bring up the detail in the CRTs, although that meant a slower shutter speed and therefore less overall sharpness, I prefer being able to see some of what the pilots are looking at when flying this machine. I do have a sharper shot, but there is almost no CRT detail, and having 6 black squares didn't look very good to me. I also like the ramp detail out the windows. I'd love to hear your feedback on this shot, so please feel free to post anything, positive or negative.
