    without a doubt, the WORST lighting I've ever tried to photograph under. Very few keepers, but here is one of them:

    [​IMG]

    Camera Canon EOS 50D
    Exposure 0.005 sec (1/200)
    Aperture f/1.8
    Focal Length 50 mm
    ISO Speed 12800

    I didn't do any noise reduction, because I am horrible at it.

    That second shot is adorable. I tried a little PP on the first shot, hope you don't mind:
    [​IMG]

    What I did:
    - small curves adjustment to help bring out some middle tones
    - desaturated the red
    - both steps introduced even more noise
    - I ran it through Topaz NR with moderate NR.
    - tweaked the sharpness and reduced the blur to maintain some of the details

    It is a little softer than the original pic. I guess you have to balance noise vs softness. Man I hate the high contrast and red cast in theatre shooting. Always a challenge.

    The second is, of course, just unbeatably cute!
    And I'm sure that the show as such was deeply impressive!?

    thanks!

    macman, I can't see your edit, because of internet filtering at work, but I'm sure it's great!

    the show was great, and that kid was cute! it was totally shameless.
