Taken a week or two ago at Whitby on the WW2 weekend. Not nearly as big as the Pickering event but there was a crooner and people dancing to the music and the whole thing was very relaxed and enjoyable. I was trying to show this atmosphere whilst concentrating on the dancers and cutting out the background figures in modern dress.

Those old 'themes' are great, we attended a 1940's bash in Llandudno and thoroughly enjoyed it. This is a good record of the occasion but I hope the 'anti fur' brigade doesn't weigh in here. Fur coats and stoles were all the rage then but mainly the province of the affluent except for the odd 'hand-me-down' which also occurred a lot.

Great photo, though I am not certain cropping helped set the atmosphere described. A colorized vintage photo of two old friends meeting in the street, perhaps. I could not tease out the atmosphere other than that expressed by the couple. Just wondering what the original shot would have revealed. Also, is there some highlight clipping, the right side of the subject is so bright!

I agree with parob that the shot is disconnected from the event, but what is there is a connection between that woman and the man that you have caught well. Technically its underexposed, and theres a strong magenta colour cast.

The bigger shot may not have been underexposed, and theres come very bright light there, which has affected the side of the lady's face, but when you crop close, you can end up with an area that need to be a little brighter.

I like the shot for that connection from the lady, and have loaded a mod to show what I mean about exposure, colour cast, etc.


Hope this is helpful,



regards
