For those of you who don't care ... this is part of an airplane, and it was really dark in there.
For "Tailspin" and the rest of my plane nut buddies, this is from the nose section of an Avro Lancaster. CLICK HERE to see the writeup on the Flying Heritage website.
For those of you who are camera buffs, I was testing a Canon 6D camera with Canon's 24-105 f4.0 lens, and this was shot in available light (ie ... not much!), with the camera braced on a railing. Check the EXIF data below for details.

You know when I saw the title, I just knew it was going to be some part of an airplane! LOL!
This really has a beautiful steam punk look to it, Tara! You did a fantastic job in such low light - and I don't think the image would have had the same appeal if it would've been brilliantly lighted. This lighting is absolutely perfect - and you did a great job capturing the feel.

I like that low light Tara. Soon I have to check my Canon EOS 60D and see if I can do something like that. As to the Lancaster, word had it that our neighborhood in Berlin got wiped out by one of those big bombs the Lancaster could carry. It wiped out most of the block in the big raid on Berlin in late November 1943. We had left in August of that year and went to Sudetenland (now Czech Republic). My mother was from there, of course when she was born it was part of the Austrian-Hungarian Empire. I remember seeing a few Lancaster during the Berlin Airlift and of course I have seen the Canadian Lancaster at the Mid-Atlantic show a few times.

I like this! After watching Battlestar Galactica, I could easily see this in a raptor, or under the instrument panel of a viper mk. 1, not the snazzy new ones. The color tones are so delicious in that way that low light produces. I love the way the darkness dominates, but doesn't overpower this image. Unfortunately, I don't know much about planes, despite the fact that I love them. I really dig the crisp, metal and the soft light. As another friend of mine would say (with an accent from over thataway): "Zis is sexy." (Yeah, he's one of those friends who can't pronounce the "th" sound. Or as someone else quite special would say: This is enough good.
