@ Shep: The tone-mapping is a bit garish, but you did it without murdering contrast so points to you for that.

@ Rye: Your cameraman got a bit too frenetic for my taste on some of those shots of the band - just crossed the line to where it became hard for me to track the musicians - but otherwise that's pretty boss.

I know it's far from perfect, but for a cameraphone shot off the cuff, I'm quite proud of it.

Yeah, it has very nice composition and perspective. Next time bring a real camera :wink:

This is also a nice shot, although the pure white surfaces on the lower left side are a little disconcerting.

In keeping with my commitment to media other than photographs and drawing: Ziggurat Vertigo is my latest song. Listen with a decent bassy soundsystem if possible.
