Dananananaykroyd live at Swn Festival in Cardiff, November. The singer went in to the crowd, I think this captures the moment quite nicely.

Its just what you wanted to capture, people having fun, and the singer interacting is a nice addition.

Can do with some sharpening, and more contrast as in mod1, and in mod 2 I used Photoshop to add a little lens flare.

I've shot these before myself... they can be a bit of a handful! Wink

A couple of things I think could be improved upon:
- I'd have taken the picture a fraction earlier or later, with less of the singer's hand/microphone obscuring their face. Even better to wait until his hair's not in his eyes as well. I do understand this is easier said than done though.

- I'm guessing you converted this to black and white as the colour version looked a bit ropey? When using a compact with the flash in dark venues such as this, I find the night portrait mode works quite well (or any other slow synch flash mode), then you can pick up a bit more colour and ambience from the background. Don't worry about blurriness with the long exposure. Your camera's flash will do a plenty good enough job of freezing your subject sharp.

I hope this helps Smile

PS - I hope you don't feel inspired to add PS lens flare to your photos in future, as per the previous suggestion, as it looks terrible! Wink
