I'm sorry if you or anybody else took umbrage, @boojum - this was in no way intended to offend.
I specifically chose something a bit different to the norm; we have red doors, red balloons, red berries,
red flowers, red T-shirts and many red cars. This was intended as a fun take on the red theme.
This is an Italian brand of coffee. Rather nice too! Apologies again.
Nice image, Irene — bollocks to those close minded folks who would dismiss the use of any technique with the potential to make an image stronger. Sad to learn of Mr. Humphrey's passing.Bit of a longish story. I know that selective colour is regarded as pretty naff. But here goes ...
Anyway - rather sad circumstances brought me to seek out these images from 2013, due to one of the band member's recent death and request by the family for images.
Stage lighting is generally awful and a challenge to work with and initially I made this entire image B&W, which looks quite okay.
But due to the very redness of this shirt, I thought I'd do a selective red only, seeing his dramatic pose
