Today I went to the Lowell (Mass) Folk Festival w/ my wife, 2 daughters, and a friend of my youngest daughter. It was a hot day, but clouds came pretty frequently.

The first group we saw was Tread (read about them here).

With all the shadows on the stage, I decided to give Active D-Lighting (Normal) and matrix metering a try. Used my 17-55 & 70-200. C&C welcome, EXIF intact.

1. Tread, a group that plays a mix of Irish - Canadian music. Harpist Triona Marshall, fiddler Jon Pilatzke and guitarist Jef McLarnon.

Thanks Greg, quite welcome! Ah, fried dough, didn't see any deep fried twinkies or snickers tho', LOL

LOL, I missed the giant pencil pic last time, love the DoF.
Hey thanks Phil. It actually worked, they were using it to make a drawing.

You captured this event very well. Your photographs are top notch. Excellent.
Thanks!
