More photos from Download 2006

Been working on more photos from Download festival! I’m fond of the ones with high-contrast processing.

Download - Panorama

While I was on the main stage at Download just before Bullet For My Valentine, I took a few photos of the crowd which I turned into a panorama. If you want to take a look at it, I’ve put it here: http://www.eyesopen.co.uk/panorama
It will take a while to load, it’s about 2 Mb so I’d only have a look if you have broadband or are very patient.
The original file has twice the amount of detail, it’s a 75Mb file!

I didn’t have a photo pass for this one, as I was with a publication who sent 2 photographers. The other photographer had been doing Download for years, so she had priority. I went to the front of the crowd at the side though and grabbed some shots when Axl came over to our side right at the start of the show.
I was quite impressed although I’m really not a fan but apparently things went downhill after the first couple of songs which is when I left.

Lordi weren’t allowing interviews all weekend, instead they had a press conference! All very rock and roll.
