Jeff Lynne's ELO

By TrevBatWCC    
Had a super evening out this last Monday at Jeff Lynne's ELO concert at the First Direct Arena, Leeds. It was equally as impressive in their musical performance and stage lighting as their concert June 2017 at Wembley Stadium. Not being anywhere near the size of Wembley meant not being as far away from the stage, which was an advantage. However, these events don't allow you to take 'professional' cameras inside so, as with Wembley, took my little Lumix DMC-GM1. It's 35-100mm zoom allowed me to capture just the stage area at the long end, whilst taking in the projections onto the large screens at the rear of the stage at the 35mm end. The main limitation is being in a fixed position, not being able to wander about for different viewpoints!

Great view point Trev. Found myself singing "Livin' Thing" as I looked through these images. Great light show as I would expect. Think my favourite is V5.
Now I have to get the song out of my head Wink

Can only agree with the above. It's interesting to see how well M43 handled 6400 ISO and the difficult lighting changes. Allan
