not that it really matters..but the flash absolutely did go off..
you may think you pushed down the flash, but it popped back up again!

I have absolutely no doubt..lets see if I can prove it..
hmm..need a plugin for irfanview.
ok then, here is a screenshot of the exif data:



im not sure what "flash = 9" is saying exactly..heading to google.

this example:
http://www.digital-photo-software-gu...exif-tags.html
shows "flash - not fired"..so thats pretty obvious that would be the exif value if the flash was not fired.

ah! here is something:
http://www.exif.org/specifications.html
http://www.exif.org/Exif2-2.PDF

its a bit confusing, but it looks like "9" equals "flash fired, compulsory flash mode"

further googling clinches it:

9 = flash fired, compulsory flash mode.

the flash fired..no doubt about it.
the exif data says so.

I like the shot!
I think the flash effect is pretty cool..
you would not have had those reflections at all if he flash hadnt gone off.
you could get that kind of reflection from very low direct sunlight, but in that case, the whole side of the loco would have been better lit.
