The Hand That Moved

First post for the year! Well, first post in a while from me. And a rarity - a person photo - from my first gig coverage assignment. This image was caught at the Fusion of Music February concert in Windsor. Working in low light, without a tripod, with maximum zoom, I couldn't have made it harder for myself. But this picture came out serendipitously well as I realised that I had inadvertantly tracked the moving hand while the rest of the instrumentalist (who is playing a home-built electric cello) dissolved into the action of her enthusiastic performance.

Most of the shoot is in varying shades of magenta and teal depending on the stage lights, but I gave this one monochrome treatment to post here.
