This is pic of Mike Brady singing his very Australian song " Up There Cazaly " at the Grand Final concert 2008 at Federation Square Melbourne.
This is a bit different for me as its almost a cliched kitsch sort of pic. The singers almost heroic pose and even an Australian flag behind him.
This result was unintended and probably the opposite of my personality. But after seeing the result it seems a shame to waste the image. To me the pic seems almost satirical.
The pic has been altered in I cloned out the Rialto tower which directly behind Don Brady’s head. I also made the pic black and white from color.
The pic has been slightly soft focused as I find digital resolution a bit offputting and doesn’t look natural to me. Even now it seems the singer and background are from two different pics.
Finally I am really happy about the composition of this pic. I don’t think I cropped it as the resolution is still 3meg by 4 megs. So unusually for me the pic is as I composed it in the camera.
