Dr Brian May 2

By SootyNicko
The last in the series of pictures that I will be uploading that I took from the crowd at the Queen + Paul Rodgers concert at Sheffield Arena on 19th October 2008.

This was taken just after my previous upload. I couldn’t decide which I liked best so I uploaded them both.

During his solo Brian came right over to my side of the stage and ended up being strongly backlit by the lights. I tried to get him in silhouette while still getting the shapes in the dry ice. Due to the strong white backlight and the absence of other colours I converted to black and white as I thought it gave a better image.

Comments and criticisms welcome.

Thanks for looking.

All the energy and intensity of a live gig, love this. There's just enough light catching his hands and that's what matters.

Thanks everyone for the comments so far, much appreciated.

Moira, the light on the hands is something I liked about the shot too, its good to know that someone else (whose pf is way better than mine lol) thinks the same.

Dave, thanks for your suggestion, I might just send it to Brian.

That hair and guitar - it couldn't be anyone else, even without seeing a face. Like the positioning of this one better than the previous one.

It was a great gig Alan, although I thought they were better when I saw them the first time at Sheffield when they filmed the "Return of the Champions DVD"... I hope to be uploading some shots of Metallica at the O2 from September soon.
