What an event! Looks like an awesome location for an African folk music event... looks natural and "at home"!

Again, magnificent fill-flash... Great framing... great moment...

I wish I could be as good!!!

Great picture. I remember seeing it at acp conference last yeara. The blood drive photo below it was great to see. Just a reminder that you are human.

One of the best photos I've seen on dA or anywhere else, it is very innovative and very good technically.
