What a pleasant change to see a cockpit in a roll shot As It Should Be Shown. Why so many insist on taking these pictures with the ground level and the cokpit rolled is beyond me. They must not be pilots.

Interior lighting of cockpit; contrasted with, yet
parallel to the Vegas city lights; cockpit
structure residing at obviously different angle than horizon--an immediate attention-getter; the
contrasting, simultaneous contexts of the inner visual warmth and activity of the cockpit contrasting with cool technical distance and a sense of isolation; the variety of light color and
reflected light inside the cockpit: light ultraviolet-ultramarine, tints of emerald, ruby-orange and white all cast a jewel-like grid over the cockpit interior adding a special lighting and
articulate volume definition; you know it's night but an efulgent glow lightens the craft's interior and pierces the night's darkness in a rare way.

Difficult light conditions and aircraft angle. Very good balance between cockpit and city lights exposure.

Thanks for a great picture. You moved the cockpit to the left to catch the lights of the city in the right windshield. Not the normal "full cockpit frame". Thanks a lot :)
