In March I was photographing down at South Bank Promenade, Melbourne on a Saturday night, when the weather was still pleasant enough to have dinner by the Yarra River.

Later in Photoshop I grayscaled the crowd and masked the performer into the spotlight.

I adjusted the levels a little to boost the colours and detail in the structure.
