Ballet - gift to edit this Christmas ?

Ho! Ho! all, I was going to post this in Lfi but the quality of the "crushed jpeg" is tooo awful - there is no detail of the blue paisley backdrop in the jpeg and it 'appears to have muddy brown splodges' all over

For those wanting EXIF it is Manual ; WB Auto (it was drastically changing by the minute and Olympus ONE was always going to be better than me at this) ; Flash Off ; 1/80 sec ; F4.8 ; ) ; 0.0 EV ; 1600 ISO ; 75-300 Lens (because it has performed so well for me, getting detail at Concerts and at great distance from the stage/singers/dancers ) ; 75 Fl ; Metering Spot ; 9 x focus points (to grab more detail in the "core" of the image

It was a most awesome "Experience". Although I wanted to up the ISO further, I was concerned about 'noise' and its post processing elimination - test shots in a semi dark corner of 'the bar' with the 40-150 BEFORE we went into the theatre, gave me too much light and overexposure.

My finest shots came from the 75

But here for all those who want a play "with Ballet" over Christmas try it

I cannot convey the difference of my 98Mb Tiff file (I have just been working on fro prints) over this jpeg. Infact, it looks as if I have taken the subjects out of the dark blue paisley'eque backdrop

I am having 10 T shirts printed of these Principal Ballerina Dancers (from the Tiff) and they are to be sold off by Cissy for the Royal Marsden Cancer Fund

Enjoy ! Merry Christmas and if you do "edits" I do hope you will share yours here
