I like the man and the projected passion!

Superb advance in music photography with this setup. We just would have such a hard time in dim clubs with film. This is simply amazing at 18,000 iso!

yes the new toys we have make it a more "fun" world to shoot in. this is image possibly my original concert shot from NYC.
Jon Luc Ponty at the Palladium 1976 shot with an Olympus OM-1 on K64. i had front row seats. an image i love to this day.

Yes, the violinist is really delicate and creating music with delight, passion and his heart!

You have really caught the live atmospherics of the music!

BTW, the stage lighting here is excellently balanced between the soloist and the rest of the band!
