An excellent image in my view.
Not that much that could be said about this image. The actors might be framed closer but then the splendour of the stairs and gallery would be diminished.
I like the full ranges of tones plus the details into the shadows.
Competent and interesting with good BW conversion.

regards
Ian

I like the idea but the people are just too dark and indistinct for me. It thus looses impact. The very solid black foreground is also too much. I think I would be working quite a bit with the dodge tool. You could possibly get a little closer, but you do need the expanse of building in for effect.

Logo a terrible distraction. Small and in a corner is best.

Just thinking about what Paul wrote and so I've done a mod. Use white dropper in levels on a white area and then burnt in woman's dress a little.
This has made. the image a little brighter.
Not sure if it's an improvement, just different.
I like your New York collection..

What a venue for a performance!

I like Ian's mod - I think that works better, and reflects the drama of the setting, rather than the technical light levels...

Excellent shot, very nice atmosphere.

I would suggest, that since the singer is in the centre of the frame, that she should be vertical, and not tilted. Addressing this also changes the angle of the stairs, - I actually like the stairs angled, but I would still ensure she is vertical.

Apart from that, I like the slightly brighter singer in Ians mod, which Ive done also, and since the lens was pointing to the left, the right of the frame has some small fall-off in sharpness, which is easily rectified.

First class mono.

View the mods LARGE.



regards


Willie
