Julie (101) - Tina cajoling singers

Tina oozed joi d'vivre. Every ounce of her being engaged with the music and with communicating joy to the audience. She barely kept still for a moment as she beckoned, cajoled and enticed her singers to harmonise, to crescendo or dimenuendo. At times she teased them mercilessly toward a final note: and they knew to watch her every gesture!

She was the most difficult one to photograph: unless I wanted her back! I really wanted the joyous smile which is why I have included the final shot even though atrocious. They rehearse sans music sheets, sans recording devices. There are no auditions - yet the sound was quite, quite glorious.

She looks like a really interesting person - the hair, the scarf. The smile one is nice but I vastly prefer the one your have chosen for the main shot.

I'm trying to work out what's happened to your colours of late. More contrast perhaps?

Whatever it is, it's working for me.
