Killed By Reflection?

Thu Nov 16, 2006 1:50 pm

I had my first opportunity to go inside a Russian aircraft a couple weekends ago. The only An-26 with a US registration. Well, I tried several angles for a cockpit shot and no matter what was done, I still got this nasty reflection on the display on to of the glareshield. This was with bounce flash too.

Is this a rejection waiting to happen?

Thanks,
Danny

I'm affraid it does kill it for me, it is quite a rare photo though, but what really kills it for me is the fact that you have slightly cropped both of the steering yoke handles.

Yeah, I was afraid it was going to be too distracting. Oh well. The reason for the chopped yokes is the cramped quarters at 17mm. Crazy.
