another year has gone, just cleared my 200 gallery images will start all over again, thanks to everyone that took the time to look.

I usually have to underexpose by -1EV or -2EV at this theater, since they often use very hard spotlights. That makes it really hard to recover the shadows, which I almost never do more than Lightroom allows with the Shadows and Blacks scrollbars.

Pixel peepers would destroy my pictures since they look awful zoomed in. ISO 6400, or some camera shake, or mild blur from the artists, but the quality is way more than my clients need, so I'm very happy with my Pentax kit.
