What Is In This Photo?

Directly straight ahead, on the back of the third seat from the camera in the very middle, the grey block. Looks too square to be a pillow covering or sheet. And it's partially covering the IFE. (Not that the person behind it appears to be using the screen right now...)

Anyone else find this object peculiar?

Not sure I buy that, looks far to square to me!

Having said that, I can't think of anything that might be on that screen the photographer might feel needed concealing.

Maybe it is just something the passenger who was sitting there put up there. Maybe a post it or something like that

I agree. It's an antimacassar.

IMHO, it's some sort of processing artifact. Perhaps unintentional, I don't know, but it's not a natural part of the image. Have a look at just that part of the image greatly enlarged in Photoshop then screen captured. It's artificial and shouldn't be there IMHO. Perhaps the photographer could go back to his original camera frame and see if it's there, or somehow got added during post-processing.

I agree. I've looked a the other KLM MD--11 cabin shots and cannot find another with the same "void". The fact that is at the exact center of the image is odd.

It almost looks like he (accidentally) cut out part of the photo by pressing ctrl X (I know I sometimes press the wrong combination of buttons lol)

Hi all

Headscreeners have seen the RAW image and can confirm that it is a flipped over headrest cover.
