Chick Corea and his old mates were in Atlanta on a reunion concert just a couple of weeks ago. I think they were on a world tour.
With post-processing is like with salt, got to be very careful, slight overdo and the dish is spoiled.
Ada Emihe: Thanks
.. and once again she delivers...excellent girl! smile
Ada Emihe: Thank you Ade.

Chick Corea is a great musician and so diverse, Nice to know your Dad has taste smile

In regards to your last 3 photographs, the content has been excellent.You have a great eye. But the compositions and faming have not. Why don't you see if you can find a book on composition and framing? I struggle with it too and found a few books that helped. Also, PP is a bit heavy. It distracts from the character of the image.
Ada Emihe: Thank you Kathryn

My dad loves Jazz too, we used to be so upset when he would only buy jazz cd's when we were younger, but now I have a huge appreciation for it. Very nice!
Ada Emihe: I know what you mean Etomi...We used to hate it too. It was brutal. But as I grew older I learnt to appreciate it. Not too sure about my brothers though. Thanks for liking.

A wonderfully detailed, earthy feel to this image, Ada.

Nice processing, the lightin is perfect and the colours spot on. Superb
Ada Emihe: Thanks so much Floog. Please could you tell a story about this man and his saxophone? Would love to read it.
Well composed and lit.
Ada Emihe: You think so!!! Thanks so much Nigel, I have to believe that cause it's coming from you. Thanks for the link.
The treatment is harsh and metallic, but I think that's appropriate here and the tight crop works really well.
Ada Emihe: Thanks so much Ian...I'm quite glad it did..wasn't too sure how to process this one.

great feel to the image Ada, jazz ain't for me though, more a Manson man lol, and personally don't think there's anything wrong with the composition and pping smile
Ada Emihe: Thank you much Tim....I still want to know where you placed the reflector when you took a picture of Lauren a while back.
Oh great stuff: a wonderful image!

An exceptional image and wonderful to post for your Dad. Dads are special treasures even when we only have the memories of them. I love music and this guy looks like he really feels it.
Ada Emihe: Thank you so much Sherri. Dads are special treasures indeed. The guy plays very well.
we want something new! ... update before I start a chant!
Ada Emihe: lol..I am working on it Ade...Please don't start a chant.
This is a very powerful piece Ada... you have truly captured the fulness of the moment and the treatment of the image is fantastic. I love the tactility of the composition, the texture of the brick wall, the lines on his face and hands tell their own tale and of course the faded denim ensemble that has withstood the test of time in contrast to the Cold metallic sheen of the sax and the warmth of his skin as the fuse together to produce the scathalogical vibrations we have all come to love and identify as JAzz.
Great shot.
Ada Emihe: Thank you so much Bumi..lovely words. Bless.
