Almost Famous - or not quite the cover shot

Newbie poster here, but have been doing photography for magazine articles for a couple of decades ... sounds like that Dr Hook song "can't get my picture on the cover of The Rolling Stone" magazine. But I did make it to the background image of the contents page of a national magazine ...


Taken on E-M5 with 12-40 Pro.

Everything counts, and you have achieved more than a lot will ever do.

Re: Almost Famous - or not quite the cover shot

Many (most actually) struggle to get this far. Well done.

Re: Almost Famous - or not quite the cover shot

At least you recognised it. I spent all week looking at a photo on the contents page of the Radio Times and thinking they could have used one of my shots. When putting out for recycling I realised it was mine that had been flipped left for right.

Okay it's back, you may have been editing when I first tried to view your post.
Great image and more the better for being taken with an Olympus camera. Nice one!
