Hi folks.

I have had a fabulous response to me last 2 uploads, the first more than the second. Thank you all.

I decided to go for a cleaner shot this time. I have de cluttered the background, there sre some struts and stuff on show. (See Viva La Diva to see what was there). I have also found this lovely expression on Katherines face, so thought I would try one more.

I have lots more images from the concert, I dont think any more shots will come to EPZ though, as they are all small variations of the same thing. I may find one more, but thats to be confirmed.

As always, any and all feedback is welcome.

Thank you all, have a great day.

Anthony

Techi stuff - 50mm lens, f.5.6, 125th sec, 250 ISO, manual settings, metered of the top spotlight, and composed. The original shot had some of the orchestra in view, so I just cropped them out.

Hope this helps.

Anthony

thanks John, Roy and Graceland.

I have her CD's too, and it was a real thrill to get to hear her live, a wonderful experience, everyone should do it.

This is a fantastic shot Anthony, the sharpness and clarity is superb. I have been trying some of this stuff recently (see my recent uploads) but could not achieve your success due to low level lighting. I found your 'techie stuff' very useful!
Shortlisted.

Thank you Tony, im really pleased you got something useful out of this.

I actually found my first batch of shots, were over exposing, but couldnt work out why. I twigged in the end. I started metering off the conductors white coat, and eventually the spot light.

I set the camera up manually, and off I went. Instant improvement.

best of luck, will have a peek at your pics.

when i looked at the thumbs comparing the 2 i liked this one better, youve removed the struts and the singer is brighter, but on looking large there is more glare on her face and chest from the lights. its still a great shot and congrats on the user award.lesley
