About the Image(s)

This month the UK celebrates 70 years of the Queen’s reign and lots of events are happening in the UK for that event. This shot of a singer was taken in a tent just recently and hopefully captures something of the occasion. 1/250 @f3.2 ISO 200

And, what a celebration it was! I did catch some of it on the television. Great smile and sparkling eyes! If this was going any further I might either darken up the tent covering above her head and eliminate the banner merging with the British flag. Perhaps a simple tighter crop of the singer and the mike   Posted: 06/08/2022 09:11:04

Joe thanks for your comments which were very helpful. As a result I went back and totally changed the background and removed the offending flag which I hope has improved this shot.   Posted: 06/10/2022 07:43:24

I didn't think you were - it was just my poor choice of words. In fact your suggestion add me go back and alter the image much more to my satisfaction so thanks very much.   Posted: 06/10/2022 11:58:23

I like what you did with the Union Jack for the background.   Posted: 06/10/2022 12:29:31

Hi Peter, I agree that the Union Jack would add even more significance to the photo. The image is full of meaning,   Posted: 06/10/2022 18:09:54

This photo brings out how many in England love the Queen and the family to me. It wasn't directly taken during the ceremonies but shows how people across the country celebrate. Hey, Joe Kennedy maybe we could get photo's of your relatives here in Massachusetts when they celebrate some event! (while the rest of the US says "oh here they go again".) LOL!!!   Posted: 06/18/2022 20:06:00

Peter, I love the re-do version. It is colorful, patriotic, and nicely composed and exposed. Great job.   Posted: 06/21/2022 14:07:05
