Busch Garden Musicians

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 27 January 2011 in People & Portrait and Portfolio.

Musicians make their way from Festhaus at Busch Gardens in Williamsburg, VA. How nice to see a euphonium among them. It was a week that proved to be quite warm in Virginia, which took me by complete surprise after leaving a much colder Chicagoland.

Photo captured May 5, 2010.

Alun from cheshire, United Kingdom

great shot, these guys look as if they have just come from Bavaria

27 Jan 2011 6:19am

@Alun: I heard they spent time at Best Western's Hotel Obermuehle. :-)

Roman from Thiersee, Austria

wow, great processing here - is it Lucis Art?
this shot could have also been made somewhere in Bavaria ;-)

Phil David Morris from Saskatoon, Canada

A photo with HDR which usually I do not like with people, but you have mastered
it perfectly here, using it to give added dimension and color separation. This is
one really lively photograph.

nice HDR, a little light for my taste but that illuminates the characters. Very nice picture.

Franz from Baden, Austria

cool processing, very effective! mock bavarians in mock lederhosen - well, well, well ... ;-))

27 Jan 2011 12:16pm

@Franz: Seeing the lederhosen reminded me of the lederhosen I wore as a child during the holiday season. :-O Thank goodness I don't recall what my socks looked like.

Sarito from Basingstoke, United Kingdom

Nice HDR.. looks like a nice event.

Curly from South Shields, United Kingdom

So unmistakeably German!
Hang on, aren't you meant to be somewhere near Chicagoland?

27 Jan 2011 1:38pm

@Curly: I nearly forgot about all these photos from Williamsburg when I went to Washington, DC last year. I posted so many DC photos that I had to get caught up with photos I had taken since my return. So Williamsburg was put on the "back burner." :-)

tataray from france, France

Super cool !... très drôle ...))
ET magnifique on dirait une peinture.
Bravo.

This is a warm, sunny, and happy scene and I especially like the casual look they have as they relax a bit duriing their transition from one place to another (perhaps the closest watering hole!). And as always, your rendering here is magnificent...I really DO get the warmth off of this inage...amazing! Beautiful, Steven!
