    You are becoming a Master of taking shots like this with no flash, Clever Girl you, I am going to learn from your settings, as i am not good with Night shots...Lovely picture!

    Thank you Maggie...I am a long ways from becoming a master of existing light but your
    photography really inspires me to try my best to work with the light that is available. .

    A wonderful job on this one! I know so little about the settings on the camera, but you are really delving into the settings, and I can see you are mastering them!!

    So warm and beautiful, Andrea!! I really love the tones in this fabulous scene. It's a little ironic, but we have an Ellsworth High School just 30 miles away from us too. I hope you enjoyed the play!!

    Thank you all for the comments...I loved the acting as these students all played their roles
    very well...It would change every once in awhile in the scenes switching from disco to had to pay close attention.
