Great images Dave!(y)
Your jazz images are excellent indeed!
My pick is #2 also...for the reasons that have been said - the connection between Sarah and the bass player is terrific.
Both are super sharp though and have a great feel to them.
Thank you Gareth for the nice comment.

I had an idea I`d take a shot of a skull for the theme Spooky/Halloween, plus it`s my Technique of long exposure too. Put the X-H1 on my tripod and set it to 4 seconds.

I take it the smoke has been overlaid :thinking: very spooky Dave and not a musician in sight :wideyed:

:)

Thank you Allan, I did the smoke using Affinity Photo with smoke brushes I have.

Crikey Dave!!!:eek:
They're pretty scary!!
I prefer your posted image, which appears to be your avatar too.
I like the way the red eyes pierce the smoke...a little more subtle than the red smoke version, though that is top notch too.
Nicely done Dave...how I'm gonna sleep tonight is another matter however!!:LOL:

Whats up Dave, you must be unwell you must have Noshoehornitus.

I like the red version of the 2, but there is not much in it to be honest.

Thanks Peter, no jazz for a while till I get over the bug I have.

Have started to moved around a bit more, but the test will be tomorrow when I have to go out. My take on the Short theme has changed now, King Tutankhamun had a very Short life as a Pharaoh he died aged 18 or 19 yrs of age.

Good to see you trying to keep up with the challenge, Dave.
Thanks Stan, I don`t like to get far behind so my shots are going to be coming in late as I want and will finish my 52 this year.

Went out today wrapped up well, then popped in to The Collanade bar in town I think it is a lovely environment inside. X-H1 + XF16mm f1.4

I like both, but prefer the gorgeous colours in the second one :)
Thank you Rick, it had to be a quick shot too as they don`t really like anyone just taking photos.

I agree about the mucky green one - but I do like the straight black and white :)

Excellent work Dave!:clap:

Glad you're feeling better and are able to keep your hand in...you're putting out some great images!

Your Tutankhamun images are really excellent!
Really superb details and the lighting on both is top notch...the highlights work very well indeed!

The bar interiors are terrific Dave!
While I'm not a fan of the processing in #1, it still works, and has a nice vintage feel to it!
My pick is the B&W...it's absolutely perfect!

Thank you very much Gareth for the nice words, the Tutankhamun bust was a gift from my father who got them in an auction in London for me two of them he got and both are very very heavy.
