Slightly Stoopid at Reggae on the River 2017

On August 5th I had the opportunity you see Slightly Stoopid in concert at Reggae on the River 2017. The show was great. I was very far back and on a bit of a rise, so the sound had a bit of an echo. When you got into the bowl where all the dancers and crowds were the sound was great. With my camera I was a bit hesitant to get into all those people. I don’t know what the official count was of the crowd but it was big.  The moon was beautiful, but it never got over the stage so I was not able to capture the moon and the band together.

The event had a drone flying around, and lots of cameras so I am sure the whole concert is on YouTube.

I didn’t touch up any of these photos. Enjoy.

Reggae on the River

 

These 3 kids were a blast to watch. I finally had to go over and ask their mom if I could take their picture. This was the one I thought was the most fun. I just did a very slight rotate and cropped the picture from the original I think it looks very good. I am hoping their mom remembers the web address I gave her so I can send these pictures to her.

I was so fascinated by this woman’s hand, and the smoke that just drifted from it. I took a bunch of pictures trying to capture the mystery of it. I have just cropped this picture.

This young lady was very happy to pose for pictures. She was a very colorful personality as  well. I adjusted the rotation a bit on this, cropped and did some small adjustments to the contrast and brightness.

The moon over the event was just a sliver. A star was almost directly over it. It was not easy to catch, and get any of the stage in the picture. The lights washed things out a bit. I have just done a slight rotation and cropped the picture to better show the moon.

These are just a few of the pictures. I included the original picture and the edit. I would love to hear thoughts on the edits.

Thanks and have a good week.
