Making Lemonade

Joe Satriani - Flying in a Blue Dream What do you do when you are in a concert, many rows back from one of your idols, and you want a photo?  It's dark, and all you have is your little pocket point-and-shoot?  Well, you put it on the highest ISO, zoom in as much as you can, and hope for the best. 

As you'd expect, I ended up with a lemon.  As photos go, the quality pretty much sucked.  But there was something about the photo that gave me hope.  For one thing, it captured the magic of the performance.  The pose was perfect, and the dark background made Joe stand out like the icon he is. 

What do you do when you're stuck with lemons?  You make lemonade.  With just some minor tweaks, I ended up with a photo that I really like, a lot.  And adding a hint of color to the background makes it fit the amazing song he was playing, "Flying in a Blue Dream". 

So I hope you enjoy this photo as much as I do, and when you're done, run over to YouTube and search for Joe playing this song live.  You're in for a real treat.
