Sunday Jazz at The Lion Basford , in Colour

I don't often post two photos at once , but I am posting two photos from Sunday afternoon at The Lion, Basford, Nottingham

One photo in colour and one in mono. This is Sarah Simmonds who sings with the Shipstone Street Jazz Orchestra, who are a community based big band playing standards from the 1930s to the 1970s

The venue is a old pub, quiet a small venue, which was packed out for the event.

The room was quite dark and I didn't think it appropriate to be using flash in a pub, so I upped the ISO , opened the aperture wide and got a few grainy photos, which quite suits the genre well.

I usually prefer mono to colour, but in this instance I might just be wavering towards the colour shot.

Sony A6000, Sony 50mm f1,8 lens and post processed in GIMP

Let me know if you prefer colour or mono :)
I love this one, I think it's the smile, and that hair!

Nice photo, despite the lack of lighting you managed to have a quite sharp image

Definitely the colour - has more life and verve! Your Sunday afternoons are neat!

Beautiful capture and you can almost feel the vibes. I liked the b&w shot but I like this more and having the band in the picture as well.
