Pic(k) of the week 5: Flight-deck Art?

Photograph and sharpness are far too often used in the same sentence... Why do always want a perfect sharp picture of our subjects? 

On my way back from New York, somewhere over the North Atlantic with my little Fuji X-E1 on the side, I felt the urge to be creative. Making something that is different. Something we don't get to see every day...

2013 Pic(k) of the week 5: Flightdeck Art ?

Being limited to the small space of the Airbus A380 flight-deck, I came up with the following "Zoom burst" image of the Primary Flight Display (PFD). Zoom burst is a creative technique where one zooms out while clicking the shutter. A relative slow shutter speed  (min 1/10s or so) is needed to have a pronounced zoom effect. Whatever is in the centre remains there, the rest becomes blurred.

Image details:
FujiFilm X-E1 with 18-55 lens
ISO 400, varying focal length between 60 and 30mm, f10, 1/5s
RAW development in Lightroom 4.3

After coming back from the Big Apple, I uploaded some recent images into my "New York" gallery.
