This meets the challenge perfectly. The weird lighting is all due to fill flash. Processing: severe crop and then a bunch of hue/sats, curves and stuff. all basic editing adjustments.

Greetings from the critique club...

I wasn't able to vote on this challenge, but if I had, I probably would have given this image a 6.

My first impression is that this is a very interesting photo that almost appears to have been painted. It looks very much like an impressionist painting. There is an emotional quality that keeps my interest.

From the stand point of the theme, I can tell very clearly that a fill flash was used. The fill flash is subtle compared to some of the other photogrpahs, but that is no way reflective of the success of the photo. I'll assume the subtelty is why the image didn't score higher, but you and I both know that's not why you're here ;)

Keep up the good work. I enjoy your contributions to this website.

If you need any clarification on any of my comments, please feel free to pm me. It might take some time for me to get back to you.

A perfect 5! Nice! It's either a rock band on stage and their adoring audience, or an evil overlord barking out commands to the peasants. Either way it works for me.
