The lighting is great on this one. Where did you shoot this?

@David: The auditorium at Charles Wright. The band is called "In the Tradition" and a very good big band. The lighting was really bad, the stage was lit exclusively with red spotlights.

Steven from Chicagoland, United States

I love the lighting on his face that you have captured here which highlights his cheek bone, philtrum, and alae nicely.

Usually this lighting is a daughter is an actor and I take many photos of her and her players and those red lights are killers. But you've been able to capture so perfectly!
