@Lorraine: Thanks Lorraine! - the bit I couldn't convey with this photo was the intense noise coming from the live band that were playing for all they were worth!

Steve from Hellam, United States

Yea, that perspective is awesome. I also like the crazy lighting, it's very effective.

@Steve: Thanks Steve! - I loved your images on your photoblog but couldn't see any way of leaving comments - do you have an AM3 version?

Rabbit from Richmond, United States

Wow - this shot makes me feel like i have had some kind of pill from the Dr. and i need to lay down or i will pass out ;) Great effect!

@Rabbit: They had one of those glitter balls on the ceiling reflecting dots of light everywhere like crazy so you are right on the mark with your comments - thanks!
(It took me quite a few goes to get this shot - eventually what worked was turning the flash off and using iso1600!)

@vasa: Thanks vasa - I was really impressed by the photos on your own AM3 blog and left a note for you there on one of the photos from a couple of days ago.

Markus from Reading, United Kingdom

Incredible lighting, love the structure it imposes on the scene, very nice job!

@Markus: Thanks Markus - I was pleased that I managed to capture the effect of the light. i had to turn the flash off as it was killing the glitterball speckled light on the floor. 1/6th sec is my record for a handheld shot - i couldn't even use the balcony to rest on as it was vibrating to the beat of the music from the live band!

Rabbit from Richmond, United States

I'm very impressed with the ISO at 1600 that noise is not very apparent in your capture.

@Rabbit: Thanks Rabbit - I bought thi compact acmera - the Fuji F31, as it had a reputation for being good in low light and I wanted it mainly for work for taking record photos on dark unlit internal building sites.
