About the Image(s)

I took this some time ago at a small music festival, at one of the minor stages.
I really liked the little boy watching his father with a less than impressed look on his face. But I am not sure of the final picture, it is certainly less fussy converted into black and white. 1/320th at f8.5 nikon short zoom at 56mm on a Nikon D1X back in the day when my hands were a lot steadier than now.

Hi Tim. Your image certainly tells the story from the kids point of view. the Dad is well composed and exposed. I like the way you captured the Dads intensity and face without showing those throw away type images that happen when people are singing. The backdrops line up with your "minor stages" description and except for showing a little more of the stage at the bottom of the image.   Posted: 11/07/2021 20:28:37

Thanks Bob. I really liked Dad's intensity and the young son with a really bored look on his face.   Posted: 11/09/2021 03:27:01

Very nice capture of a moment in time. Not sure if processed that way, but the grainy look adds to the scene. I see some small star burst on the knobs of the guitar, that is pretty cool.   Posted: 11/09/2021 15:01:04

Really nice image that tells a great story. I love the detail in the singer's face.   Posted: 11/10/2021 21:49:25

This is a 'keeper' for sure. Love everything about this picture - certainly has high impact on me (entertaining and strong message). The composition could not be better if this was posed - which it was not. Great catch for the expressions on the 2 faces. Great tonal range shown in this B&W rendition - almost impossible to duplicate in colour.   Posted: 11/13/2021 11:15:11
