Photographer’s Notes
I was at the Seattle Center shooting for Heavy Metal Song Titles challenge and walked into Paul Allen’s Experience Music Project and Science Fiction Museum. Among other things they had some of the fighters from the Battle Star Galactica set including this Cylon Raider. I am a huge science fiction fan … or as it used to be known … scientific fiction. So this was a treat for me. Photography is allowed as long as you don’t use flash., and this is a nearly-straight-from-the-camera shot of the Cylon Raider.

For the record, it's not a model but stands more than 6 feet high and 30 or 40 feet long. Un-arguably cool!

Enjoy.

Awesome Doc! Top ten and a great score for a great image. This has a very "Dune" feel to it too.

Battlestar Galactica here on DPC LOL, lovely light and a very crisp shot.

Quite bizarre...I'd love to know what this is! Great composition, but fan of this...and top 5 in my books. Lighting seems a little flat though? Some extra contrast would've made this sing!

Oh. *gasp*

Brilliantly simple.. But I'd never have thought of it or have been able to capture it so well.

Marvelous. I SO wish the crop was tighter, or at least less of the bottom portion. The tones on the center are breathtaking.
