Thanks for all your words of encouragement on the previous post - they're all very much appreciated. And I do mean that.

I took this shot tonight as I was wandering through Princes Gardens. I could hear some live music playing and so was attracted to the old band stand where a group of people were dancing to some ceilidh music. The sun was on its way down at this point and so helped create a very pleasant backdrop for the scene.

I also got a chance to try out my new tripod - a little Verbon Ultra Maxi F. I have to say that it's pretty cool. Very compact, light and perfect for those occasions when you can't be bothered hauling a heavy tripod around. It also has a twist mechanism to extend the legs which is a very clever idea and easy to use. Although it's incredibly compact, its maximum height is a respectable 155cm. It certainly isn't the most stable tripod when fully extended but you can't really expect that given its specs. It does make me fully appreciate my uni-loc 2300 major system and manfrotto 332 RC2 head combo, but boy is that thing heavy!

Excellent work, John. The sky is beautiful and the wide-angle is amazing. The color contrasts in this image are pretty remarkable. That turquoise against the concrete wtih the backdrop of green makes this stage the perfect little hideaway. Kind regards, Brent

I really like the way you've captured everything in such a broad perspective with such brilliant lighting...for me its a very creative flux of past and present...as soon as i saw the manor on the hill i thought of a medieval castle and down below uve got plastic chairs and a band playing.
