Following your feedback I've reduced the red tone. Thank you.

Geordie (Dean Wilson) (8/6/2012 8:32:52 AM) Another wondrous example of your series Chistopher - I am fascinated by your excellent post processing procedures in general - The secret?
Great expression and authenticism (Is that a word) LOL!
Top drawer - again!
Mark Polis(8/6/2012 8:57:38 AM) It's all been said, Christopher. Terrific style and always fascinating to study the characters.
Amaher (Amaher Amaher) (8/6/2012 9:07:01 AM) Excellent tones and effects , red color add more scense
Tim Pereira ( T-Bear) (8/6/2012 9:49:02 AM) I like this Chris, I really do but I would like to see the reds tone down a little. Of all the people here, I too do stage photography.
When shooting stage photography, one of the hardest aspects is controlling the red levels, then, controlling the spot light blues. The theatre I shoot at has a very high cooling(blue) spot light with downward red lighting.
I always try to leave the colors as what you seen on the stage, which is a little diffacult for me...I'm color blind. But, I have trained myself to do my best with the colors.
Now, my question is, do you add more red to your photos, in post processing? I'm just wondering more then being critical. Hope you know, I have always loved your style!
Tim Pereira ( T-Bear) (8/6/2012 10:48:30 AM) Chris, please see the example, this is a perfect example of what I'm talking about. this is from the show Pipn. The spot light was on Pipin(cooling light), being crowned King while the rest of the people are in the red lighting(warming light).
Christopher Azzopardi(8/6/2012 11:00:28 AM) #1 Sreten: Thank you #2 Ceri: Thank you #3 CherylB(Take me or leave me u'll never change me): Yes, you are right. It looks a bit to reddish. Now I reduced the red tone. #4 Geordie(Dean Wilson): Thank you #5 Mark Polis: Thank you. #6 Amaher(Amaher Amaher): Thank you #7 Tim Pereira(Sheriff Buford T Justice): Thank you for your feedback. This was not shot in a theatre. I set up everything myself and the building behind the Roman soldiers is a real old building. Now I've reduced the red tone because as you and Cheryl have pointed out was a bit too strong.
joe bellantoni(8/6/2012 11:06:11 AM) #7 Tim Pereira(Sheriff Buford T Justice):
this is a setup shot by him as all of his are...not on a stage ...he controls the lighting and the characters....
joe bellantoni(8/6/2012 11:07:12 AM) #9 Christopher Azzopardi: ops sorry ...did not know you already told Tim about your work

#10 joe bellantoni:
I never knew these were setup shots, for some reason, I thought they were from a show or something, my bad!
Christopher Azzopardi(8/6/2012 12:39:10 PM) #17 Tim Pereira(Sheriff Buford T Justice): I do take photos of shows but I prefer to create my own set-ups because I want to have full control of the poses and lighting. I feel that in a real show I am very limited because I have no control over the poses, lighting and where to stay to take the shoot.
Wessel-130766(8/6/2012 4:47:21 PM) Another top image by your hand. You really make the past touchable and visible for us
