About the Image(s)

Several days ago attended a Great Gadsby show by the sister act of Gracie and Lacy. Since this is 2020 I imagine there will be a lot of nostalgia for that era. Taken at f 5.0. ISO 2000, 1/20 second and routine processing.

A pleasant picture with a lot of atmosphere . Taken at the right moment, good composition, perhaps better in a square format.   Posted: 01/16/2020 09:11:27

Interesting and perfect timing. The subject is really beautiful and attractive. I agree with Daniel to make it square format. and why not try to invert it to bnw with vingntted corner.

Jim, good sharp image considering the low lighting conditions. The stage lighting adds drama to your image and the flesh tones are natural. Interesting back-to-back composition of the subjects that suggest a mirrored quality. Also like the gestures of the two ladies with outstretched arms and the triangles formed by the arms below. Agree with suggestions to crop - perhaps to eliminate the three curtain swags on the left which will also take care of the mic. Nice capture!   Posted: 01/23/2020 05:36:30

Jim, great image. You captured the performers at peak of action and symmetry. Their face expression is beautiful and shows that they are enjoying their performance. The image is sharp considering the light conditions and 1/20 sec handheld. I do agree that a square format fits the image better, and added a slight vignette. also did a B&W conversion which looks pretty good.   Posted: 01/24/2020 06:58:08
