Difficult conditions to take photos : only one source, and very hard light.

Hello, Olivier -
Concert shots are difficult and rarely turn out well; this one is an exception to that rule. Despite the low light you caught a lot of nice detail. I note the sheen of sweat on her neck, for example. Good choice to show it in B&W. The contrast, as you mention, goes well with the mood. Very nice image.

Hi Olivier
Sure right, nasty lighting here. B & W probably the best way to go under these conditions. Compliments under the conditions, didn't blow out the highlights at all.
