    Hi Shaggy,

    Unfortunatley that happens, the camera has metered off the inside so its exposure is correct, but not for the outside. Try next time and meter off the outside then use a flash to brighten up the inside thus giving you correct exposure in and outside. Im suprised they let you in the cockpit mid flight . I suppose you went upper class didn't you , so they give you different treatment to cattle class, whatever you want

      Thanks Pavvy, I'll try that next. Shame cos there is alot of detail to be seen in that shot. Engine Power, You can see the wind on our ass hence a crossing of 7:30 eastbound, it actually took longer comming home, the step climb etc etc

          By asking the cabin crew and them obviously being nice?

            It's a shame that the windows were over-exposed as it's a major distraction and takes the focus away from the rest of the shot and what you were trying to show us. Next time you need to take a metering through the window, lock the exposure, then recompose and use fill flash to expose the interior correctly (with the permission of the crew obviously). Takes a few practice shots, but once you get it right it transforms the shot.

            Apart from the over-exposure, there is a slight contrast problem too as the whole photo seems to have a milky sheen over it, most likely as a result of the glare from the sun.
