I photographed a musical event in Macon last night. I spent four hours fighting very low light. I even cursed it a few times. No flash allowed, lots of back lighting, and subjects that were on a stage. I decided that if I couldn't beat it, I would use it. This is my favorite shot.

Thank you for the spotlight Lew!
