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...

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.
